Do any of you know if the Oxford ones will fit over OEM DL650 plastic hand guards? They don't look as big as the other brands??
Thanks

My older Oxford ones will. I haven't done so but I've fitted them over other hand guards. What's bad is using them with no handguard or support structure at all, as they'll press the levers at speed.

I tried to sell mine cheap on BARF a few years ago, but got no interest at all. Decided to keep them as a backup. I might get a smaller set of muffs (the kind where you can still see your hands) instead. Or try to fabricate something.

I have heated grips and Hippo Hands on my DL650 with Barkbuster guards. I wear mesh summer gloves all winter with this set up. I commute and see 35F very often. My hands stay toasty warm.

Don't know about you but I'd rather not have extra plumbing and the possibility of leaks in an accident.

I haven't used any muffs yet, and this is the kind of thing I needed to see. How is your insulation set up for the rest of your body at 35? I'm trying to relate this to the core heat issues raised above. I'm familiar with the concept, but only from a hiking/camping perspective, where a high-speed windchill factor is not usually present.

Just ordered a pair of the mid length Hippo Hands for the V-Strom (have Oxford heated grips).
Thanks

I was not serious when I posted that.

What kind of smiley would best convey that in the future?

I wear an old Aerostich Roadcrafter that I bought off Advrider for $350 and a Warm and Safe heated jacket. I'm too old to be cold.

You're going to love the set up. I had to modify my R/H muff a little to make it sit right. I used a soldering iron to poke a little hole in the top so I could thread a small zip tie around the mirror stalk. The position of the mirror was making it wonky. You'll also have to play with the position of your hand guards and the velcro closures to make everything comfortable.

Thread creep, it's a philosophy not just a bad habit.
