    Oxford Heated Grips Throttle tube

    Hi Guys,

    Looking for some advice, I have started to install Oxford touring hot grips and removed the throttle assembly.. having stripped the old OEM wiring loom from the grip i have noticed that the grip does not have ribs, but are patterned and cut to allow the wire that heats up to be sat in them. I have tried sanding, but it will not fit inside the Oxfords.

    Has anyone come across this and know of a work around?

    I have been looking for a new Throttle Tube but they are like rocking horse  :172:

    Hi, yes I think thatís what is required as I canít see the  triumph heated throttle tube being sanded to fit the oxfords over.

    Slightly different but out of interest I have fitted Oxford grips to my 2018 Tiger.

    It did involve a LOT of filing and sanding but well worth the effort.

    I always eschewed heated grips for may years but having now felt the benefits I wouldn't be without.

    The Oxfords work well
