Not heard of anyone fitting them to an 899 yet, and not heard of not being able to fit them due to type of throttle either, can't see why not though, but will stand corrected if wrong.

hopefully it can work, i can see this being something a good portion of 899 riders will want. maybe try asking another dealer or someone else at that dealer.

I struggle with bad circulation and was looking at them but have decide to go with heated gloves by a company called Kiess. They do a set that have Li-on batteries that go in the cuff of the glove so no wiring at all which is great if you have more than one bike. They run for around 5hrs on a charge :)

I'll let you know when i get some sorted

I have them on my bike

I stinalled oxford sportz heated grips on my 899. I had to sand down the inside of the throttle side grip a little bit, and I had to sand off the end bezzle of the throttle, but they haven't slipped around at all. Probably because they are still extremely tight on the handle bars. They were hard to get on but they work really well. Oxford Heaterz Sports Heated Grips - RevZilla these are the ones, but they weren't on sale when I got them. :mad:

I've had heated grips on a few bikes. They are just about ok. Thumbs will still be out in the breeze though.
Used heated glove liners on my 899 on a 120 mile ride this weekend with a heated body warmer. Brilliant. Run them off a 6mm jack plug lead that I plug into my Optimate. It's the only way to stay warm in my book. Save my battery for when I'm off the bike for a while like race spectating.
Keis gear is great. :)

Hi Cerec1
Can you pls elaborate how do you plug these heated gloves in the bike? Do you have to make a modification on the bike ?

I've an optimate lead, straight off the battery,fitted by my dealer as Std,which is cable tied onto the frame LHS about level with my knee. Keis do an adaptor which plugs straight into the end

Heated gloves are ace, some are re-chargeable, some plug you into the bike (just a simple lead to the battery).

If its the plug in type (which I have) you just have to remember when you get off the bike that your plugged in :D.

I wonder if there's enough room for a relay. I installed one on my ST3 after twice forgetting to turn off my heated clothing controller.
