    cruise control doesnt interfere at all with the oxford, i have it on my 2016 and a friend on his 2017 and the grip is the same

    Liking the look of these Koso ones if I'm honest
    Yep they fit the 2017 bike. I mentioned in back up in post #9

    Couple of things though with the 2015/16 bikes and the 2017.

    The grips are 5mm too long. Just cut the end off once installed. Any more than 10mm and you might cut the wires. I turned mine on to feel the heat from the wires to determine where the wires were.

    On the left hand grip you need to cut down the plastic 'extending/sleeve bit that holds and houses the traction control +/- buttons. It extends 10-15mm along the left handlebar and just needs to be cut off with a hacksaw. 5 min job. It will never be seen and serves no purpose.

    On the 2017 bike the same thing applies. But also (as mentioned in previous posts) on the throttle grip, the plastic housing for the grip is about 1 mm wider than the 2015/16 bikes. So it will be hard to get some heated grips slid over the throttle grip sleeve. On some brands of heated grip you will need to hone out the heated grip hole a tiny bit to get it to slide over. We used a curved edge rasp/file. Took 10 min to hone it out.
    '
    Or... use the slightly bigger grips. The new Daytona worked for 2017 bike (and 2015/16). Oxford didnt fit.

    Ok great

    What about the Yamaha ones then ?

    These are more ready available here in the UK whereas the Koso's need to be shipped across the pond

    All I can say is that the Yamaha ones are great... really neat fit and work very well to point that I very rarely use the highest setting as they're so damn hot

    Don't know about fitment to a '17 but friends have them on all sorts of bikes.

    Can you turn them off without having to cycle the temperatures, and do they remember the last setting when turned on again? Also can you remember if they were built on rigid plastic tube centres?
    I love the easy looking installation loom.

    Did he program them correctly, they seem to have three upper power levels 8 -18W (scooter), 8 - 20W (small to medium bike), and 8 - 22W (larger bikes) which need to be pre programmed in the controller? Webbikeworld calculated that the Koso was 39watts on maximum, so quite a bit hotter.

    This is the specification drawing for the Koso Apollo. How does that compare with the throttle side diameter on the 2017 Tuono? Also what about the lengths?
    Unfortunately I don't get to see mine until next week

    I forgot to mention that I needed to cut off about 5 mm of rubber from the end of the hot grips so that they fit onto the tuono. I'll edit my earlier post.

    Not that sophisticated I'm afraid and really doesn't bother me about an extra couple of button clicks. They do have an auto-off if not wired via the ignition, which mine are. I like them because they simple, neat and effective.

    Heated gloves are better imo because the part of the hand that gets cold is the top of the hand as it is exposed to the wind, but heated grips heat the palms of the hand.

    I got these bad boys, keep your hands nice and toasty on 3 different settings:

    Ok so today finally fitted the new V8i oxford heated grips!

    works perfect! very happy after a little trimming to sit closer to the ATC switch's

    both oem grips came off complete with just an airline and a little pull, also I used better glue then the supplied.
