With cold weather setting in, its time to think how to prepare your motorcycle with winter. It’s not just the discomfort that riders have to contend with, it can also be hazardous as low temperatures can lead to a loss of feeling and dexterity in the hands. Internet parts supplier Wemoto stocks a range of affordable products that are designed to combat the multiple effects of cold weather on the hands.


Foam Lever Sleeves – £1.99:


Foam lever sleeves are a perfect, low-cost solution to cold and slippery control levers. Unlike tape, foam lever sleeves slip straight onto the levers and can just as easily be removed, leaving no sticky residue. The foam material is not only comfortable, but it provides optimum grip, even in heavy rain. The padding also assists in insulating the levers from vibration, which can cause numbness to the fingers.


Vicma Heated Handlebar Grips – £40.00:


These rubber grips are easy to install with no glue required. Manufactured using high-quality specialist materials to combat cracking and deformation, they are both long-lasting and comfortable. The grips work by steadily heating up while the engine is running, reaching, and then maintaining temperatures of up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Protected by a relay, the switch is safe to use in wet conditions and has a long life expectancy. The heat is adjustable to suit the personal requirements of each rider.


Handlebar Muffs – £28.16:


Handlebar muffs are a high-value solution to cold hands and fit most machines with ease. A fleece lining on the inside of the muffs helps to keep hands warm, while a water-resistant outer fabric protects the hands and gloves from wind and rain. Easy to fit, they slip onto and cover the handlebar grips and levers and can be adjusted for individual fit and comfort. The Vicma grips and these muffs are an excellent combination, completely insulating the outside of the hands while heat is radiated from beneath.
