I must have one of the three LT's that came without heated grips.
I've used the Oxfords on four other bikes, and they work well but for the LT I was planning on Factory grips. I can't find them for sale.
Anyone know of a supplier?
Thanks.

Thanks for the input guys, I guess a new BMW kit is no longer sold, if I have to go aftermarket, I'll stick with Oxfords, wicked hot, small buttons on the controller and on a rain ride should bag the controller, but they work, and the price is right, <$100.

Just FYI for you, the standard "non-heated grip" handlebar will not have holes drilled in to for hiding the grip wiring.
You will either have to drill your own holes or run the wire exposed.

...which is why I posted the eBay links for OEM heated grips and switch.
