There is a new heated hand grip kit from Buell. The website says that it will only fit on 2008 and later XBs. I have a 2005 XB12Scg, why will the grips not work with my bike? Is there anyway to make them work? And does anyone know of any other heated hand grips that would fit my bike.

There is still a way to make nice integrated heated grips on your bike, just not quite as plug and play as on the 08's. Gimme a call at American Sport Bike (760-727-2333) and I'll walk you through it.

Will the Harley Davidson grips work or are you talking about aftermarket hand grips?

Aftermarket hand grips as you need to separate the throttle sleeve from the rubber grip to get the heat element under it.

The full kit (call Al) has aftermarket grips and heat elements plus a Buell Ulyses OEM switch housing that includes the heated grip switch. Its a very slick setup.
