    Default heated grips?

    They are not an option right now. I wonder if there is a third party brand I can use. Maybe Oxford? BTW, I hated the ones on the F3, they never got hot enough and the button was so tiny I could not toggle it with a gloved hand.

    I hope to see something in the aftermarket. Heated grips are so cozy

    I researched the Oxford "Premium " Updated grips and was going to put them on the Ryker but decided just to get another battery harness and use my Warm and Safe Glove liners that I use on the F3. The liners are so much more comfortable than gripping to feel heat. Minus feature-you attach the wire?

    Default heated grips

    I can't comment on the Oxford brand but I have seen many others - that have multi- heat levels, check what's available on E-bay Mike

    I do want one where I can change the temperature. Are the Ryker bars the same size as on two wheelers?

    I don't remember the brand but we had heated grips installed on my wife's Goldwing that had a rotating reastat. She had infinate control over heat output. I do remember they were made by a common motorcycle aftermarket company so should not be too hard to find...... Jim

    These are well rated and have 5 Percentage settings on the controller. Won't break the bank either-

    I installed oxford on my Honda Nc700x. It was easy and has 5 levels of heat. Warmer then the ones on my F3L.

    Good, the F3 has big chunky none standard bars. So on the Ryker, I should be able to install a 'standard' kit meant for a transitional bike. The only other concern I have is the bar end mirrors. I don't know if they can be reattached to the third party grips. I may have to get some 'rabbit ears' rear view mirrors. Thoughts?

    Has the smaller battery size on the Ryker been considered when looking at heated grips? Or will it come into play...since the heated grips will require a certain amount of amperage to run ?

    This shows the end bars loosening- Not sure if the grips would work or Not. BRP does sell the Sport Grips so you must be able to change them?

    I guess I will have to wait and see. The bunny ears is always an option since the ryker has a normal sized bar.

    Here is one that fits the 1 7/8 bar. I may try this.

    Has nothing to do with Battery Size, but everything to do with Alternator out put and system power draw. Doubt if heated grips would be the slightest problem at all.
