    I've got helibars as well, it's not the bars themselves that are the issue, it's the throttle tube that the grips go around, the grips in that kit don't have a throttle tube, they are meant to just go over the stock non-heated one.

    Just got a call from the shop, the OEM right grip came in and the inferno heated grips fit over the stock non-heated throttle tube, so I'm just waiting for them to finish the install and I can go get my bike back.

    Okay, so they were installed, and I rode up the local mountains this weekend as well as late at night with temps in the high 30s and they worked so well that I had to turn the warmers down because my hands got too hot, and least on the palms and inside of my fingers....doesn't help the outside too much, however at least my hands no longer freeze down to the bone, so that's nice.

    So it is an alternative to OEM correct, and a bit cheaper, right?

    Did they splice the wires?

    They are about $100 so much cheaper than OEM (especially since you can't get the full OEM kit) it came in a full kit with the grips and controller included, so no splicing. The only issue I had was I had the OEM headed grips, and their grip didn't fit over the throttle tube, so I purchased a stock non-heated right grip and used that throttle tube. That worked perfectly.
