I would recommend the Oxford Premium. They are slightly larger in diameter than the OE grips and have a more aggressively textured surface. This helps with throttle hand fatigue, particularly on the '07 with its stiff throttle return spring. These are an easy install and they heat up quickly.

These grips are $89.99 at Revzilla.


***WARNING!!!***

Buy the ADVENTURE grips! The Touring grips are too short for your FJR. The Adventure fits just right.




Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I bought the Oxford "Hot Hands" heated grips to install on my daughter's bike. It's what any GREAT Dad would do...

You will find the OEM grips way to expensive. I have factory heated grips on my 08 and they work well, how ever if one packs it in I could buy the Oxford units for the price of one OEM heated grip.

The one advantage of buying OEM grips, is that the wiring for those grips is already included in the wiring loom of the bikes for that year. The grip wires and connectors will be tucked away in the main looms.

That may be so on the newer bikes but I don't think that is true of the '07 bikes. The reason I went aftermarket on Pop's bike was because we would have had to buy an entire harness and the relay along with the grips. It was a pretty big deal to install.

Here in Australia, the 06 model was the first of the Gen2 bikes, it did not have heated grips, but it did have the necessary wiring, which I discovered when I was installing Oxford grips. From 07 onwards, all of our FJR's had OEM heated grips. I believe the USA models were a year behind ours at the time, which made me think the 07 USA bike would have the wiring installed.

'06 was the first of the Gen2 here as well. I think the AE version came standard with the heated grips. I am not positive when heated grips were standard, I want to say around '10 or '11.

You Australians get some stuff we don't. Your Suzuki DR650s are better than ours for sure. I had to order and install the "Aussie needle" in my carburetor, yours come with multiple grooves.

Just installed the Oxford Heaterz Premium Adventure Heated Grips on my 05 FJR and love them. They heat up to 122 degrees F. Put my heat controller on the clutch reservoir clamps angled so that can easily reach and see in all conditions.

The cat's meow setup for those rather cold morning near freezing temps on the high way:



  1. Oxford heated grips
  2. Vstrom 1000 Handguards with Garauld handguard extenders
  3. Heated winter gloves or heated glove liners up to 135 degrees F (for longer rides)

They are a must install on your FJR

Spoke to Oxford about installing the heated grips power direct to battery or power off of fuse block. They are designed to grab power direct from your battery terminals. Do not wire into your fuse blocks or risk power issues.
