Did the 2011 street triple have a factory heated grips option? Im after some for mine but really wanted a factory feel but can only find them for 2013 onwards
Thanks

Fowlers parts does not list any triumph heated grips for the earlier 675 (and the later bike had a specific connector in the loom so 2013+ heated grips would not be a simple adaption to make them fit)

R&G grips get a Ride Best Buy and two guys at work swear by them - but the controller looks really noddy.

Edit:

G7 pop into the New Members board an give yourself an intro.
Fowlers parts website is a good point of reference for all official parts and accessories, and cross referencing what other bikes the part is on (for more informed eBaying etc)

Heated grips weren't an option for the 2009 model that I have.
Like you, I didn't fancy a clunky controller cluttering up the handlebar.
Therefore, I went for the Yamaha heated grips:



These have an intelligent controller, just like the Oxford grips, that switches off if you forget.
This feature is great for numpties who cannot wire in a simple relay.

they look great, what model are they originally for and how difficult are they to install?

I bought them from eBay - see here.
They aren't cheap, but I waited until there was a 15% off buying weekend, which meant they cost me 117.30.
As for fitting, the left side is easy.
On the right side, you need to remove the ridges from the OEM throttle tube - it's just a little fiddly.
I wired mine through a relay, as I like all my electrical accessories to switch off when I remove the key:



Unlike the Oxford grips, the wiring on these grips is connected via waterproof connectors.
I have some Oxford grips on my KTM, and I'm shocked that the wiring is by exposed connectors.
Oxford's advice: wrap them in tape!
IMO, that's a crap idea, and they should do better.
