    I’m very pleased with these. Installation on my ’02 Bandit 1200S was straight forward, but the left side was quite tight and required soapy water plus WD40 and some pounding with a rubber hammer, so be prepared. I also had to modify the throttle tube on the right side becasue the tube had ribs to hold the OEM grip, but this is a Suzuki thing so your bike may be different. I even found a compatible unused parking light plug in my fairing so wiring was plug-and-play. They get plenty hot. On a 45 degree day, setting 3 (of 5) was exact. Setting 4 was too hot even through thick gloves. The grips are pretty stout, similar to cruiser bike grips. I like the added diameter a lot, but some might find them too stout. They are also pretty hard with nearly a knurled pattern molded in. Nice through gloves, but might get annoying in bare hands.

    Wow!

    These get super hot!

    With my daily summer gloves and these you can ride on those cold spring and fall days with the temp just set at level 1.

    This morning it wa 39F on my ride to work. using heavier duty mid-weight gloves(Not winter Gloves) I had my temp set to level 3 and it was nice and warm. Now I just need to pick up some winter glvoes to keep the tops of my hands a small more warm!

    My friend bought a set of these as well, the set he bought finished up being terrible and barely got warm. He contacted bikemaster directly and they had a set shipped out the same day to replace them. The even sent them out first so he did’nt have to have downtime on his bike! Fantastic customer benefit!

    These babies work fantastic! I have only needed to have them up 1/2 way to keep my hands toasty, but that wasn’t in farthest cold. But I don’t ride in freezing weather either.
    I would have to say the only downside would be the part of them. They didn’t cover the entire part of the handle bar at the ends, but a bit of electrical tape wrapped nearly the ends with some 3/4″ PVC caps painted black and popped on… no one knows the difference if I don’t tell them!
    Performance wise: gorgeous.
