Heated grips
« on: May 31, 2019, 11:11:21 AM »

Iím not finding the heated grips very good especially on settings 1&2 with 3 just about warm.

Iím wearing light summer gloves too.

My old Oxford grips were far hotter .

Does anyone have an issue too ?

I'm assuming you've got the factory heated grips opposed to aftermarket ones? I've got that factory grips on mine and I find setting 2 to be warm enough for 80% of what I need, whilst setting 3 gets too hot at times and ends up being turned off after 5 mins

Yes Gaza the factoryís fitted ones.

The mechanic checked them out when I had the 600 mile service 2 days ago and said they were operating ok although he did say the 1200/2250 GS models are much warmer than the 850.

While in the store I purchased a pair of BMW Pro winter gloves with Goretex and they are an excellent fit.
