Oxford heated grips

I recently bought a 2012 multi 1200 S Sport which does not have the OEM Ducati heated grips.
Is there any issue with fitting after an market heated grips setup such as Oxford?
I have used them plenty of times on other bikes and they are an easy install.

We are planning a Freeze your Ass Off ride here in Oz in July and it can get pretty chilly out in the bush.

Cheers

I installed Oxford grips on my 14 MTS and I love them. They get super hot right away and you can adjust in I think 5 or 6 settings.

I have Oxford grips on my 2011 Multi. I love them, theyll get hot enough for low 30 degree temps ( I havent ridden anything colder) and I like the larger diameter grip size. Ive been using them for 3 years without any problems.

Awesome news.
Any issues fitting them?
Do the standard grips that come with the Oxford kit slide straight on?
Did you go with the Touring, Adventure or Sports Bike grips?

No issues with fitment, youll probably need to sand down (slightly) the ribs on the throttle tube so the grip will slide on. The LH grip slides on easily, youll need to glue the grips in place. I used superglue. If I recall correctly the stock Multistrada grips are 120-121 mm in length and the Oxfords are as follows:
Sport: 123 mm, Touring: 120 mm, & Adventure: 132 mm. I originally ordered the Adventure (before I researched the lengths) and had to trim them. Ive since ordered a pair of Touring replacement grips but have yet to install them.

No overheating or power issues? Sounds interesting. Especially for winter in New York!
