    Handlebar muffs for 1150GSA.

    I have 'almost' decided to buy a pair for the coming cold winter and looking at the electronically heated Tucana R333EV model at around £120.
    Albeit the bike has heated grips, I think this addition would benefit me just using regular thermal gloves.

    Has anybody bought them and will they fit comfortably over the hand guards?

    I have just received email from UK vendor and these are not shipped here. Can only buy in the EU.

    Handlebar muffs for 1150GSA.

    Vendor also stated they may not fit over hand GS guards.

    On the 1150GSA even with the touratat extensions I ended up sucumbing to muffs, but I elected to buy some cheap ones of ebay for a quad bike I think then modify them so I didnt have to remove the handguards and extensions.

    Worth the stigma.

    Alternatively the Keis glove liners are good, keep the tips of your fingers nice and warm, ideal for those who ride with a digit covering the lever.

    I have gone off the Tucana electrical one and now deciding on either the Oxford rain seal or Tucana Urbano.

    Tucana Urbano and heated grips are enough - even if you have Raynaulds and ride year round

    Do these fit over the hand guards and if possible, the TT spoilers?

    Again, with only looking at the photos, would I go for the one for mirrors and with bar ends?
    It seems Mandp in Swansea sell them.

    I've got a pair of Tucana Urbano muffs I used on my R1150GSA in Iceland a few years ago and they worked very well indeed but I can't remember if I removed the Touratech hand guard spoilers or not.

    Heated grips on 50% and summer gloves and my hands were toasty right down to 4 or 5 degrees C no problem

    Let me know if you'd be interested.

    FP.

    +1 for the Turcano muffs - also on my 1150 Adv. right through winter. You won't need electrical ones, the standard ones are windproof and you won't need the heated grips on all the time either - switch onto setting 1 and then with standard gloves that is enough for a tankfull blast even in the depths of winter. takes the wind off and the fluffy lining prevents the air circulating robbing your hands of warmth.

    If farmer Palmer doesn’t get back to me regarding a pair he said I may be interested in; will order a set.
    But, which model number is best?

    Is it the R333 or R334 Urbano muffs I need to buy for the 1150GS?
