Same here on my 2009 with myOxfords. I like having them on a relay-switched circuit, but they do click over to battery saver mode at the most curious times...like when running at 65 mph. I may try re-wiring direct to battery just to see what happens. I am at a loss as to why it should make any difference whatsoever. I have noted FWIW, that saver mode is not invoked if I run with the grips at less than the top two power settings. Maybe they just draw too much for our itty bitty supply.
