Handlebar mits

You know the type, big waterproof bags with the fur lining to keep your pinkies warm in the winter.
Any recommendations for a MT500?
Also oxford heated grips, can I use them on the MT500 or will I overload the electrics?
Cheers folks

Re: HELP Honda 4 stroke 250 single info on engines

normal honda torque settings for head bolts or nuts are as follows
8mm 13-18 lbf ft
10mm 22-29lbf ft
12mm 40-47lbf ft

thats for all hondas that i know of, ask elrider I am pretty good on hondas. Cant see there being any difference for yours.
good luck with the rebuild

Re: Low beam blowing

done a voltmeter check, goes up to 14.3 tops, so not the regulator (superdream one fitted) mrs reckons its the 1st bulb blown so could justvc been due to go.
what wattage are the halogens and are they ok to fit. heard some stories about overloading the electrics or is that just a load of bull?
