Heat demon grip warmers

Has anybody got experience with the heat demon grip heaters and how effective they are? particularly with the HD’s chrome X grip. Also what size would be needed for the standard bars.

I have them on my 2006 D and they BLOW AWAY the HD heated grips. In fact I replaced the HD's with these when they died just over a year in service. I now have these heaters for for well over 3 years and they get HOT! I am very impressed with them and use them with some OEM HD grips I got on sale for around $30. Without a doubt the best aftermarket heated grips for HD's you can buy!

I haven't tried heat demons, but I installed a pair of these 6 years ago and they're still going strong.

I put them on my wife's Nighster.

They are outstanding-- and the led control panel that replaces the clutch perch is pretty slick. She has Performance Machine Ano grips and they heat them right up-- and that's a fair bit of aluminum. They're hand's down better than any heated grips I've ever seen.

The website has a pretty good install video and the instructions are pretty straightforward.

If you want toasty hands, get them-- you won't be dissapointed.

I have to give them another plug, Heat Demons are the BEST handlebar heaters on the market. I just got back from Vreelands Hd, total roundtrip miles??? Almost 380 miles for the day. Going up was around 29 degrees, but on a bike? 10 degrees less maybe? The bottom of my hands are red from the heaters. Whatever class burn is the least, that is what I have on the bottoms of my hands. These things work maybe a little to good!
