I have been waiting for these!

I fried my stock Harley heated grips last year and was not looking forward to pulling new internal wires through my bars. As I understand it these will use the existing harley wires. Looks like they have been pushed back to a January release date.

I don't have heated grips yet, mainly because I don't want any of the wires showing. Article says these are replacements for the Harley ones, wonder if you can install without having any installed already.

these are made to replace the harley stock ones using the existing wires. Avon does sell heated grips that are installed with its own wiring. I switched out my bars last year and ran all the wires internal. When I did that I installed the factory heated grips that someone gave me. They have since burned out and the thought of pulling all new wires for a fresh install was not a happy one. I verified that the grips are still getting power so the existing wiring is good but the elements will not heat. I was looking at replacing them with the Avon heated grips when I came across the info that they were working one replacements using the harley stock wiring.
