Koso Heated grips

Well there a heated grip post last year and i never got around to posting mine, Because the bike has not been ridden, since the woman had neck surgery last spring.

So when i was reading about the oem blues, i decided to go with something different.
The Koso Heated grips showed up at about $119 when i bought them.
At first glance everything was looking to be easy,,,

The grips are 10mm wider then the OEMS, the problem is you cant get the bar end to stop moving around a bit.
So i decided to move the switch housing and the perches inward 10mm to allow the correct grip space.
After that it was not too bad to install them, the throttle tube needs to shaved down, and the right grip is a bear to get on!
So here are a few pics,, They seam to work great, so far no complaints!

Congrats on the grips. I am surprised that not many gsxs owners install heated grips. I see it as a must if you want to ride year round.
I got the Oxford heated grips. Yours look a little cleaner.

The Koso heated grips are easily the best heated grips on the market. I can't believe more people don't use them, clean install and easy adjustment.

The only downside with these grips is they are much thicker than stock, but this will be true of all heated grips.

Those look great! What model / size are those? On the website they list 3 different lengths for the HG-13 115mm, 120mm, and 130mm.

Those are the 130mm version AM111030, which I think you have. I was hoping to find the 120mm version AM111010.

Okay soi understand what you mean by shaving it down, but I'm wondering how you went about this? I have attempted to find a step by step video and they always skip to it already being done 😅. I am open to any and all suggestions for an easier install 😁
