Heated grips from 1290 for 790?

Wondering if the TFT dash support grips from the 1290 as I’d love to eliminate the the need for the controls and keep it clean.

Unfortunently it does not. The same way we still dont get the cruise control, even though the ADV bike has it. What can i say .....KTM...

I switched to heated gloves 3 or 4 years ago and will never go back to heated grips. They keep the whole hand warm and bike control on a cold day is just so much better. I use the Gerbing brand with a variable temperature controller. From memory, the cost wasn't hugely different from a reputable brand of heated grips.

I've put Yamaha heated grips on my new toy, wired into the switch power supply behind the headlight. They are a little shorter that the OEM ones but look far better than the KTM grips with the crap looking bar mounted controller.

Hey i like the look of the yamaha ones. How did you get them over the throttle tube and LHS bar? The quick-lok ones on our dukes are one piece?
And how did you get the end of the grips to fit over the plastic?
Pics please? Love to see this setup before i buy them. Cheers
