In case anyone's interested in the update, I decided to bite the bullet and get the OEM heated grips. Also installed by my service garage at the same time as getting the new set of tyres and installing the belly pan.
If I'm completely honest, a part of me regrets not going with the Symtec ones as in order to switch the OEM ones you have to scroll through menus, long hold the down button, then select the correct strength (there are 3 options, Off, Low, Med and High. I think it's one too many tbh) and then long press the enter button. Then I have to scroll through the menu to select whatever I want to actually see. If I had the Symtec, I'd simply toggle the switch and that would have been it. But I guess this one is neater as there aren't any extra switches or extra holes in the fairings. The actual grips are quite nice actually, they might be even better than the standard ones as they are a bit thicker.
Overall, I'm quite happy, but feel a bit cheated for the price. If they were £100 cheaper, I'd feel a lot better about them.
I've tried heat at High today and they are quite hot. It was 4°C outside and my hands felt very warm, so working good.
The garage didn't return the standard grips though, does anyone know if they cut them off, or should I ask for them back?
