DP heated grips are too expensive but better than other names I have tried.
Extremely hot on high setting, in fact if you have lightweight gloves your hands will go red!

They are expensive Duchess but i got them in a trade for a dirtbike exhaust i had laying around. I set them on high on the way and exactly like you stated cooked my hands. No cold numb hands this winter for me. But after using them in the chilly air tonight id say well worth for the colder enviroments.

Today started out at a chilly 45 degrees f (7 deg C) with 15mph (24 kph) winds and the heated grips performed flawless on medium. My hands stayed nice and toasty with thinner wind proof gloves from Ducati. I will answer a few questions others on other sites have had here too below.

1. How do you adjust them as there is no toggle or slider in the pic?
After starting the bike you push the start button until you have selected the setting you want ie. Off, Low, Medium, High.


2. Can you adjust them in ride and if so do you have to release the throttle and press the brakes?
Yes, you can adjust them in motion the same as you do when stationery. You do not have to release the throttle or press the brakes. Just the same as stationary.

3. Are they good quality and do they feel or look different from the stock handgrips?
They are identical to the stock handgrips on the outside inside the wiring harness there is another plug visible when installing. Quality is Duc quality and the only noticeable flaw is they grommet cover that hides the attachment screw is at the top of the grip not on the bottom where its hidden

Ask any other questions you have and I'll answer.
