Thumbs up Another Heated Grips Install Thread

There were a lot of little things specific to the Ninja 300 I would've liked to see/know going into this install job. Just little details that I couldn't find much about.

  1. You NEED heat to get the bar ends off - not exactly a secret, but I do want to emphasise this point. You're going nowhere without heat.
  2. Oxford SPORTS Grips - they're 123 mm long without trimming which is the perfect length for grips on these bikes. Oxford makes a bunch of different styles with different grip patterns, but if you read the fine print they're also different lengths
  3. You do not need to file any ridges off the throttle tube - the only ridge on the throttle tube is also the perfect stop for the end of the grip to prevent binding up against the control block.
  4. The included mounting bolts aren't particular useful for mounting the controller - go buy two M6 bolts in 32-35 mm length to replace the master cylinder clamp bolts to mount the controller there

Besides those points, super straightforward installation steps that you'd find anywhere. Standard procedure to get to the battery, fairings off one side makes it easier to run that wire and manage the excess wiring, the usual hairspray to get the grip on, etc.

I took some photos too but apparently new forum members aren't allowed to share them

thanks for the info! I think you need at least 5 or 10 posts before you're allowed to post pictures. I'd be interested in seeing the pictures once you get a few more posts under your belt.

Is your bike new to you? Have you done an intro post? Welcome to the forum.

We put the 10 post requirement for posting photos into effect several years ago. Before that went into effect, you can't imagine the number and types of spam photos that we would get.

So for heated grips, do people use thinner gloves to let the heat in, or do you stick with your thick winter gloves? Been considering trying some.

Cold hands is one of the biggest mood killers for riders up here in the desert mountains, lol.
