DIY Muffs

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by mattb, Mar 13, 2009.

  1. My little lady gets cold hands when riding her GR650 in the winter, a bike which has such notorious electrical troubles that I dare not make heated grips to go on it. So I've figured a nice set of handlebar muffs will do the trick. Anybody who's ever thought about making them has probably come up with what this guy has done, but just to show it actually done...


  2. Looks good. Well, looks effective anyway :grin: .

    The only thing I'd caution about bar muffs is to make sure they don't interfere with the switchgear or your use of it. I can state from personal experience that it's bloody annoying and resulted in me abandoning the Oxford pair I bought many years ago.

    Making your own custom units should allow you to avoid this problem, however.
  3. As long as she doesn't get cold feet, mate ;)
  4. Or a cold muff.
  5. Ever tried a cold sausage in a warm muffin, apparently it's quite nice I am told.
  6. *goes into hazy reminescence mode*...yes..cold...winter....fun....
    Untill the park warden chases you on his quad.
    *snaps back to it* oh. Hai.

    Oh, and cold hands are fun for nobody. Unless you know that ice cube trick.
