Better not forget to switch them off then.......

Best one I found (it was brought to me to look at); had been fitted very neatly, complete with a relay and fused connection to the battery. The guy tried to wire the live feed from the brake switch - a perfectly good idea. Unfortunately it was connected to the wrong side of the brake switch so they only came on when the brake was used.......

He hadn’t noticed when bobbing around London for 2 years; but then he moved.

Think I'll get one of those waist coats. So even though it's the warmest part of my body when biking....(I'm never cold in that area) using a heated waistcoat will help the rest of my body.....hands feet etc? Sounds like a good idea.
You won't regret it. FWIW I have the heat controller but never use it. I wear the waistcoat next to a base layer and plug it straight in.

Mine goes straight onto the battery terminals.... :D
Sorry my mistake........I mean are they big fittings/ small fittings regarding garment size :D

You all need to speak to BCP. He has the SH300 fitted with heated grips and Tucano. Known as the Silver Cross pram in certain circles

I said I was going to post images but forgot...

These have done three winters, I'm happy with them, think they were £30?

Hi,I’ve got a 2007 sh 300i and I recently fitted Oxford heated grips,they are simple to fit,the wires for feed to the grips and the controller travel “uphill” then through the small inspection holes (for checking the brake fluid levels) then making a connection to the cig lighter feed wire,make sure you get the polarity right,the panel to take off only require 2screws removing and the whole job takes about 40 mins but now I know how to do the job it would take half that time!
The grips can’t be left on,they have a sensor in the electrical system and if no electrical activity is detected they automatically switch off.
Sorry I can’t remember which model of grips I fitted and I am away at the moment for a few days so I can’t look it up but they have a size chart for the different model of grips on eBay,mine are a perfect fit and work well.
I fitted Oxford grips to my 250 cbf and they was very easy to fit and worked well,
They are just under £50 on eBay,Geoff from Preston has fitted Oxford grips to his 125 sh,
Cheers Tom

These rubber boots, which are worn over your normal motorcycle boots, and still allow me to change gears on my Innova, work wonders for keeping my feet, and as a result thereof, my body warmer.
They are made of high-quality rubber and completely waterproof.
I have heated grips, and would buy handlebar muffs if I really needed to go anywhere on the Innova.
I have a DeWalt heated jacket as well

Got a pair of heated gloves for Christmas, better and cheaper than my heated grips. Can't say how long they'll last, but nice and toasty.
