  6. Oxford Heated grips - do you need a relay??

    Transalp
    Oxford heated grips instructions advice states: New switch technology means that, if the engine is switched off, the grips will automatically turn off until enough power is available. This eliminates the need for the user to buy and fit relays. Has anyone fitted oxford grips without a relay...

    Dominator / FMX
    After footering about the carb on my bike, I can't get it to stop overflowing the carb when the engine is switched off, when it's running it ok I guess because the engine is using fuel. I've had the carb off a few times now and checked for dirt around the float valve and all seem ok, then I...
