They should certainly fit, bar sizes are pretty standard. They may be different legthwise but that can be worked about. On the other hand, though, chances are SVs don't have the plug that's mentioned there. I can't get that link to work just now, my ISP seems to be having some problems, but the other thing to consider is that these tend to be more expensive than an equivalent 3rd party products. I'd recommend the Oxford Hotgrips (NOT the Hothands which wrap around, but the Hotgrips which replace the standard grips) to anyone, as long as you're careful not to buy old stock- the newer ones have insulation on the inside to make them work better with alloy bars.

Heated gloves are better from the point of view of keeping your hands warm, no doubt about that at all. But they also restrict your glove choice (unless you use glove liners, which I've always found uncomfortable). And I once saw a buy drag his scooter over by plugging in then forgetting and walking off :)

The main edge that the grips have is that they're always there. If you go out for a ride in the middle of summer and get caught in a rain storm, or ride up to high altitudes, you're not likely to have your heated gloves- but you'll always have your grips.

Hot grips are the same cost as all teh other heated grips here, maybe you're getting stung by your importer? As for the box going south, i've heard that too... Always with people who fit the box with the switch facing up, in an exposed position, though. Mine was fine for a long time, I've just removed it entirely to go with a simple on/off switch though.

I'd say so... They're not roasting hot, and to be honest I'd like them hotter, but i've never found better. BMW ones are supposed to be excellent, but then theyr're about £300UK :)
