    Glad to hear you are looking at the Alaris. It's a fantastic tool.

    Oh, I'm not skeptical, I'm thrifty, cheap, feeling poor as I just retired 2 weeks ago and so no paycheck this week etc etc.

    I totally understand, but you've plunked down $$$ for the bike and now if you are retired and planning on racking up serious mileage, I cannot express just how massive a transformation the full fueling monty made on my motorcycle. It is no less than amazing now. I wish I had done it from the start but I was hesitant to not void my warranty. Now, I wonder how I ever lived without it.

    If somebody offered me twice what I paid for it to take it off, I would decline. Yes, it's that good and I'm not exaggerating or compensated, or personal friends with Todd. I'm just a true believer now with an awesome motorcycle.

    Sorry to resurrect a year old thread, but canuck1969 said there is no need to add the relay after 2013. I have a 2017 Stelvio and am looking at installing the Oxford heated grips and simply wirung them into the stock leads for the heated grips. Have read some say it'll cook the ECU, the amp draw is too much, etc. I'm not real savvy on this sort of thing, and don't want to wreck anything on my bike, but my digits get pretty cold up here in north Idaho! Anybody do this and have problems, or is it a sound plan? Thanks for your help!

    Don't believe everything you read.

    It will not fry the ECU. Been waiting 7 years for someone to substantiate that claim. Relay is already included in the 2012+ bikes (unless they got cheap in the later years). Just won't activate without a draw.

    Been running my oxford grips wired to the stock controller (wires) for 7 years on my 2012 (as have others). Works fine. Just need to splice them in as the connectors are different. Pick up some insulated bullet connectors and call it a day.

    Absolutely no reason to not use the stock Oxford setup wiring it right to the battery. I have them on 3 bikes and it works fine. they shut off after a minute or so of the bike not running and it's simple. when you are sure you are ready to install them starting the bike and putting them on high to get red hot lets them slip on better. also using gorilla super glue that uses water to activate it is the best I've found. put a few lines of glue on one side dip the other in water and slide them together. I also use painters tape or masking on the throttle end so none gets under the throttle tube.
    Make sure the power cable as it goes into the grip won't block the clutch or brake levers.

    Other than the fact the Stelvio already has one hard wired into the bike with its own selector that comes on when the bike is turned on and avoids all the unnecessary wiring and mounting of the Oxford controller. Also, the Oxford auto shut off will not work if you have a lithium battery so just be careful with that part. i learned that the hard way on my V-Strom that had a lithium battery. The resting voltage on the lithium battery is above the cut off voltage for the controller and will keep the grips on when you turn the bike off until the battery voltage drops to that range. Makes for very hot grips after a couple of hours and a not so happy lithium battery.

    Other than that, you are right.
