Default Heat Demon Grip question

This summer I put on some bars, heat demons, and Kuryakyn iso grips.

I'm somewhat disappointed with the heat output of the heat demons, but I'm attributing them not to the heaters but to the grips. I beleive the iso's insulate the heat. I run with the demons on high, and yes the grips get warm, but not "HOT".

Are there grips that allow more heat to get to the hands than the ISO grips?

Had the same experience with my brothers low rider. Had to change Isogrips to a Harley grip and it was night to day difference. The Iso's had too much air space between black rubber cushions and the handlebars(which are heated by the Deamons. Even rubber Harley grips like get-a-grip models work with Heat Deamons.

Thanks for confirming that. Bummer, cause I like the iso grips. Hate to replace almost new ones for a little more warmth and still keep the "cool" factor in play. I'll have to look around for what will work better.
