Rear heated grips power help please

Just bought some rear heated grips for my cargo box and I am wondering if there is an auxiliary power wire (ignition switched) somewhere at the rear of the machine. This is in order to avoid chasing wires from the front.
Thanks in advance

You may need to go with a relay so you can run a larger size wire?



(Only one thread on the subject is needed, thanks.
Also got rid of that little annoying edit button, that was in your post.

There is at the relay just under the right rear fender area. I don't remember which one exactly, but slap the ol' meter on the wires at the relay(s) and check it out.

I pulled power for a 100 watt reverse light from there, a relay activated fused circuit of course.

I would suggest using a relay and fuse for any additional accessories...but that's just me.

Yeah, you guys are right about the necessity of the use of a relay. My 500 Max has BRP front heaters installed by my dealer. My 800 max ltd I've just installed the BRP front heaters myself a couple of weeks ago. I guess I've lucked out with having a machine with them installed already and could use that as an example on how it is done properly and eliminating any guesswork. The LTD came with a GPS installed from the factory as part of the LTD package. As I've already had a gps unit which is better than the one which came with the machine, I've removed the factory one right after I bought the machine so the auxiliary power plug just became freed up for my heated grips. Trouble is that the wires on that plug are too small a gage for the heaters in my opinion, I think they are about 18ga. at best and I've noticed that the heated grips don't get as hot as the ones on the 500, and they also take a lot longer to come to temp as compared to the ones on the 500.
So I guess the better solution is probably to use that auxiliary plug to power my relay, since it is ignition switched power anyway, and then power both the front and rear heaters from the ign switched relay. I guess I now have no choice but to run the wires from front to back of the machine.
Since the kimpex box is too large, I've had to remove the factory rear passenger handles... this also implied I couldn't use the BRP rear heated handles, so I bought the kimpex ones which were designed for the boxes I have.
What I am also wondering is did BRP make provisions for plug and play rear heated grips like they did with the front ones, or would the dealership have to use the method described earlier to connect them? "cause if they did, and if I knew where the plug is at the back of the machine, I could use that to power up these heaters. Unfortunately I do not have a wiring diagram/schematic for the machines.
Also my Kimpex box came with LED tail lights (which at this time aren't hooked up). Is there a plug on the factory harness for them lights, or would I have to splice into the existing tail light wiring harness to make that connection?
Is the ground on these machines positive, or negative?
Sorry for the long post and I really appreciate your advice.
Thanks again so much for your help

Just picked up my passenger heated grips and it gets pluged in up by the shifter. There is a black accessory housing up by the front shifter mount bolt. That is what the BRP passenger hand grips use.

Peeled the plastics and could not find this accessories plug by the shifter. Are you talking about the accessories plug in the speedo pod by chance? What does the plug look like, what color are the wires going to it, do you have a pic?
Thanks

I too looked for about 30 mins. couldnt find the one there were talking about. So I guess they are talking about the acc. one that if you already have headed grips you plug in the passenger one then it to the driver ones. That's what I ended up doing and they work fine. Wish the direction would have said this in the first place. One thing about the heated passenger grips. Make sure you install the spacers that you take out of the stock ones! These are a must have Item. (Don't Ask) You might have to also gently squeeze the grips to get the bolt started, but make sure the spacer is installed.

Nut sure which spacers you are referring to.
I am guessing you are talking about the tubular metal spacers which are necessary for the install on the REAR factory BRP grips. If so, I agree 100%. In my case, I did not buy the BRP ones for the rear (only the fronts are BRP on both my machines).
Due to the size of my "wraparound" kimpex cargo box, I've had to completely remove and discard the passenger factory grips because of clearance issues with the box check out the picture Picasa Web Albums - ice.flo.atv.
The cargo box has its own grips for the passenger. This box has "optional" heated grips which I am working on installing now, which are fitted in place of the non-heated ones that came with the box. I was assuming that regardless of which heated grips one gets, they should all connect electrically in the same place, and I was hoping that spot would have been at the rear of the machine somewhere.
But I guess I'll just hook it up at the front acc. connector along with the other one and get it over with.
Thanks a lot for your help again.

Nope. Nothing in the rear. The BRP ones come with a harness that has to be run to the front also. You think that they would have looked ahead and had a acc in the rear for this reason. Less chance of chafing on something. How's that box working out for you? Looks good. passenger must like the fact that they have a arm rest.
