Heat Demon offers the best Hand Warmer Kits on the market. These are a great, must have accessory - 2 stage heated grips keep you comfortable and warm. Riding with these really do extend your riding season! This quality kit allows the heating elements to be fitted neatly and discretely under the OEM grips or your own favorite aftermarket grips. Easy to install, with 2 stage heat settings, the kit is suitable for all types of bikes, tourers, sports, and off road / enduro bikes. The kit consists of two heating elements on flexible Mylar tape that attaches to your handlebar (clutch side) and throttle tube (throttle side) via permanent adhesive on the back. The right and left heaters are different, to accommodate lower heat tolerance of plastic throttle tubes.

A few things to note:
1. The kit comes with a large heat shrink tube for the clutch side for metal bars (it'll need to be trimmed depending your application) as well as a short heat shrink tube for the switch wiring.
2. The mounting bracket for the switch is really nice to be included in the kit. It came with an M6 bolt that I mounted on my turn-signal perch, so I didn't have to drill any holes in my plastics to mount the switch.
3. As some reviewers have already mentioned the high setting is pretty hot but it worked great in 37F degree weather.
To make this kit perfect, I would've included a small tube of high-temp grip glue. I ended up using JB weld (since that's what I had around and shops were closed), in addition to the old-school hairspray trick to secure the grips to the bars. The hairspray definitely made sliding the grips back on the bars a lot easier.
I have a accessory power lead that my GPS is already hooked up to so that was easy to use for the grips as well. I used a inline 5amp fuse and ran it along with my 2amp fuse GPS power line off the same power source (10amp main fuse for accessory line).
Putting the heating elements on was really not that bad. A 5" chunk of heat shrink can be used on the clutch side to insulate the heat so it doesn't go into the metal bar as easily. Electrical tape also works which is what I used since I didn't think of this ahead of time. I read some of the reviews that said it was hard due to the thick/stiffness of the elements. I disagree. I cleaned the locations well and installed mine with the wire out the bottom of the grip so I would have a clean out of sight wiring. Originally I thought I might sacrifice some heating since the "gap" where the element doesn't fully wrap around would be at my direct palm resting location. Turns out I think this will work better since I can leave them on longer without my palms cooking, my fingers will have the hottest location available to them which is great since those fingers get used and can't always be on the heat.
About the grips, I CRINGE when I see instructions to cut off your grips or spray them with something. I would hope most DIYer's would have a basic air compressor in their garage. Simply blow air into the grip and slide off the bars, no cutting or wrestling with them at all. Once the elements were on it only took about 2mins of compressed air and wiggling with them to get them exactly where I wanted them. No hairspray, wd40, lube,etc.
The biggest area of concern is properly routing the cables so you have long term reliable turning of the front wheel without strain or wear n tear on the power cables. A good idea that I didn't do is use some black heat shrink before you complete the running of the wires. Find out what areas of the wires will make contact with various areas and then slide heatshrink over to that spot on the cable. Then complete the connectors, routing and final connections.
The switch looks great since I had a spot on the Concours14 that was practically made for the switch, nice and tight switch. I did someone get the LOW & HIGH cables reversed which isn't a big deal, next time I'm making changes in that area I will swap the leads. I'm am fairly certain I did hook them up as directions indicated so it is possible the directions are in reverse for what color wire is hi and low.
I have no doubt that will add the extra boost to my cold weather riding. Time will tell if either the elements, wires or installation quality will hold up.
REMEMBER USE A AIR COMPRESSOR, if you don't have one buy one, lots of good uses. 100+ PSI is ideal for slipping the grips back on. Search YOUTUBE for "R4 Bar Grip Installation " if you don't understand how a air compressor helps with grips.
