  1. Hi, I have a pair of Oxford heated hand grips and have managed to pull the wires out of one of the hand grips, am wondering if it is possible to reconnect the wires, the hand grip is glued on and it looks like a sealed boot where the wires came out of. Wondering if anyone has done this before.
    Thanks

  2. Yep its a moulded boot, you'd have to cut into it, soldier and seal it up again, I'd replace it.

  8. I took my bike in on the trailer for a pink slip as the rego had expired. The mechanic asked me to start the bike and as it was cold I gave the throttle a few twists first, the tie down strap which was hooked around the handlebar had pinched the wires going into the heated handgrip and when I twisted the throttle the wires got pulled out.

    I am now trying to find somewhere who sells the handgrips individually.

    Cheers,
    Gordon
