    After my Forman got stolen last year decided to not by another new one bought one several years old.
    Came with a set of oxford heated grips to be honest i like them 3 heat settings and they work well.
    Have no knowledge of what they may cost but they do work hope this helps. JD

    Special heated grips are made for quads.
    M/cycle ones are not going to work, well they work on the left grip, but due to no twist grip throttle
    don't stay on, or work properly on the right.
    You can also get heated pads that you fit under the standard grips, these have always worked well for me.
    These work well, and quick on and off, because the heat pad is wrapped round the standard grip they keep your hands a bit warmer.

    These are cheaper, and being R&G are likely to keep working as well.

    All that said for short trips where you are on and off all the time handlebar muffs work better and don't give the battery a caning.

    Aye my dad had heated hand grips, think the same ones as john dere mentions as had 3 settings worked well althou a waste of time for my job as on off bike so much.

    Be good if on for a decent length of time.

    If u can keep the wind off ur hands will make a massive difference, the Logic quad handle bar glove things? are great i see u can also get small fibre glass/plastic wind shields to fit in front of ur hands, can imagine they'll be good too, bloody cold things quads thou.

    Either go whole hog and get a windshield/windscreen, nothing worse than driving into freezing cold rain trying to drive throu the cracks in ur fingers

    You need a combination of the hand guards and heated grips in order to stay toasty when its really cold.

    I have to spend a lot of time on the quad in the winter and I use both but my right thumb still gets freezing cold
