Here is another shot. You can zoom in within flickr if you wishCan someone post a photo of the installed Suzuki grip controller. I know the Oxford looks a bit ugly - but how neat is the Suzuki controller? Does the mirror stem need to be moved?
Straight from the Battery. They already have an in line fuse built in and some clever circuitry in the the controller to turn them off when the engine isn't running so no flat batteries if you forget.Are you guys running your Oxford/OEM Heated Grips from the battery or splicing and going with the ignition?
How clever? I have to park in the CBD and I'm worried about it being easily switched on and tampered with when the bikes parked. I was considering installing a dip switch or the like somewhere or splicing to the ignition.Straight from the Battery.

so is some evil spirit in the parking lot doing this ? If not the oxford grips are fine. If battery low , maybe ride for a minutes to get some charge then turn on grips. BSM is just that , save the battery , who cares if the grips don't come on straight away , starting the bike is more important surely , you may be worried about nothing. If it is such a huge concern don't fit them and suffer cold fingers !"In addition, five carefully chosen heat settings allow the perfect temperature to be selected in ALL weathers and most importantly, the switch will switch off if the voltage drops to 10.5V to ensure that the battery is not damaged to the point that it cannot be fully recharged."
When you leave the heated grips on, after a few minutes the battery saving mode light comes on and it switches the heated grips off... but what happens if you keep turning them on and up to 100% ??
Once the BSM light comes on....can the heated grips be turned back on?
