The heating elements are part of the rubber grip, so that likely won't work.

I got my Oxford Premium Sports heated grips installed yesterday. It was a very easy install, just watch the grip glue on the throttle side. The stock grips came off with compressed air easily and the fit of the Oxford on the throttle tube was perfect.

I was stoked this version of Oxford's controller color matches the OEM Kawi switch gear perfectly.





Looks great . How have you mounted the bracket to the bottom control assembly bolt . My bracket would appear to be different to that ....

Thanks

This might be a good option: https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/koso-apollo-heated-grips

Looks almost factory for 1/3 the price

Better than factory in my opinion! :002:

If I recall I just took the standard bracket that came with it and flattened the right angle tab so it could be used with the lower switch gear pinch bolt. I might have used a spacer between the switch gear housing and the bracket to get the bracket position where I wanted it. I think I had to do a bit of grinding to the bracket tab to get it down to size after flattening it.

Here's a couple of close up photos.

I'm about to drop money on a set of the Koso Apollo grips.  They're only $100.22 shipped free on Amazon. The reviews seem pretty good but I'm wondering if anyone here is using them and what is your impression on fit and looks. Thanks.

Me too. Post some pics & a review when you've got them up & running. I think they sure look like the best solution for the RS.
