Odd, I had these on my TA and they were so hot!!! :D

They have a built-in turn-off device whereas if the grips 'think' your engine has stopped they cut off to stop draining the battery when you leave your bike, so my guess is that this feature is not working correctly? If they light up all the time when on, then power / fuses are fine - Would be worth an email to Oxford IMHO.

Cheers

You can turn off the battery saver feature might be worth trying that see if they get warm ohh i cant remember how to do it at the moment though :thumbup:

This was the problem to lack of voltage and no heat in the heated grips .... cut back the wiring to good clean stuff and soldered in with shrinkwrap ... now got 14.3 volts :thumbup:
