2015+ Aftermarket Heated Grips

The heated grips on my 2015 are really poor. There are numerous threads discussing the performance of the OEM heated grips so that's not what this thread is about. What I haven't read much about is who has installed aftermarket heated grips, specifically on the 2015 and newer bikes, in order to improve heating performance.

I bought a set of Oxford heated grips to install on my bike but with the ride-by-wire throttle tube, and the wiring flange on the inboard side, I'm not sure if the grips I bought are compatible.

I'll post up some photos later of my throttle tube, but in the meantime I was hoping to get the conversation started. Has anyone installed aftermarket heated grips on an "electronic-throttled" Multistrada? I'd like to at least know if it's even possible.

I won't be able to confirm fitment of the grips onto the throttle tube, but I can confirm that oxford grips can be wired into the stock ducati wiring harness, so the OEM button is functional. As long as you're handy enough to solder and heat shrink a couple wires.

Thanks! I tried connecting the Oxford controller to the OEM Ducati grips but the temperature was still pretty low. I measured 55C with my IR thermometer. When I measured the temp of the Oxford grips while connected to the Oxford controller, I measured over 100C. Both of those were at the 100% setting. I haven't tried connecting the Oxford grips to the bike controller though.
