winter is coming, so this year I decided to finally get some heated grips for my 2015 gts 300.
I bought a set of these https://www.oxfordproducts.com/motorcycle/brands/oxford/handlebar_accessories/hotgrips_advanced_touring_uk_specific/, and fitted them at the weekend. The installation went smoothly, and the grips work really well, but like all the Oxford grips they come with the most (to my eyes) hideous control unit. I refuse to have that 'thing' spoiling the looks of my Vespa, so I put it in the only place where I think it belongs: inside the glove compartment. I have been riding for long enough to know that I won't need to adjust the heat level while riding, so the idea is that I will turn the grips on when I set off, and turn them off when I stop.
But now I've started toying with the idea of adding a handlebar-mounted little on/off switch which would in line with the control unit (which is wired directly to the battery), and allow me to turn the grips on or off.
Has anyone attempted anyting of the sorts? I'm assuming that the grips' control unit won't be affected by adding a switch in line, but maybe I am missing something? Any tips?
