Oxford Hot Grips
« on: April 20, 2017, 01:54:44 PM »
My OEM heated grips are failing so Oxford seems to be the way to go.

The 'Sports Bike' ones are available cheaper than the 'Adventure' ones
They are bang on the right length @123mm so seem the ones to go for.

Am I missing something, is there a difference other than grip length?

I think they are basically the same. I read somewhere about the embossed patterns on the grips being different between models, with the sports ones presumably being more 'aggressive'

I have the touring model on my Trophy 900 and they are great - so much better than the OEM Tiger ones - but let's not start that debate again  :007:

Cheers for that

Not that interested in the grip pattern TBH as Grip Puppies are going on them

I tried Grip Puppies on Oxford Touring grips and they didn't work well, made the grip way too big, and I've got XL hands. Might work for you of course.

I fitted Oxford hot grip on mine a couple of days ago, just be aware that the throttle tube takes alot of filing and sanding to get right due to all the moulding features.

If I had access to a lathe I would have used that in preference.
