Right out of the box, they don't fit over the G2 throttle tube. They miss by about .050".
Sure I could machine the tube down, but I don't like that.
And the grips are quite a bit larger diameter than the OEM KTM grips on my 990R.
Next up is the wiring; it looks well sorted out, but is very bulky coming form the grips. Yes this provides a more robust wear element, but less vinyl insulation and more MIL-spec would be lighter and less bulky as well as more robust.
Next up is the controller mounting. Thread forming screws into plastic on a motorcycle are never a good idea. This may work fine if you only ride a few times a year, but when these are meant for a commuter service I doubt they will last.
The metal bracket mount itself is not fit to mount anywhere as it is delivered on the KTM. While these are generic grips the mount needs a good deal of work.
I did not mount them and intend to sell them to someone who wants them.
Hey there Richard - sorry to hear you aren't happy with the Oxfords. It's good feedback for us to know they don't match up with the G2 throttle tube. I've actually added this info to the product listing for others to read. If the grips are still in new condition with all the packaging we'd be happy to take them back – I want to make sure you feel taken care of. Feel free to give us a call if you'd like to return them.
