Any endorsements of aftermarket heated grips for highbar 1125cr?

Fixed the electric. Also the 1125cr in simple terms always makes max power and dumps the excess. So adding power accessories doesn't tax the system any more than not.

Not aftermarket and not a CR, but an R so not sure you'll consider it applicable.
I had the factory heated grips on mine. Mostly because they were plug and play and with the grip switch in the right hand pod - had the integrated look I wanted.
May want to check with St. Paul or your local HD dealer for availability.
If I remember correctly, they were stock on a ULY. Maybe a bone yard?

I retrofitted another set to my Firebolt for the same reason. '04s don't have the accessory plug '05 and later came with so had to be a little creative.
I can say that I rarely take them off the low setting.

Now, on the 1190 I have Oxford sport grips. They have a control module to locate and a fat cable from there to the pod controller. And need to be glued on instead of screwed in place like the Buell units.
They usually spend their time at setting 3 or 4 (of 4). Not complaining, just passing along experience.
I have another set in the box waiting for install on a Suzuki this winter so obviously not unhappy with them.

If the bars are hollow...and have a 5/8(.625) inside diameter...I have used "Polly Heaters" on my old Vstrom and a old Goldwing...originally designed for snow mobiles...they go inside the bar...pull about 1.5 amps for each grip (3amps total)...no worries about the wires fouling up the twist grip...Amazon sells them...hth

'09 1125's have sufficient extra electrical power for heated grips. Part of the stator failure problem is due to this. The '08s have a smaller margin.
