hot grips for ktm530exc

Hi, I am thinking to get heating grips for my ktm530exc. I have heard that it is not easy to find grips that will fit them. Any suggestions?

There have been many discussions of heated grips here on AR. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install on any bike. I and many others prefer the Symtec brand which has dedicated clutch and throttle side heating elements that are affixed to the bars with the grips slipped over them. I use 1" heat shrink tubing under the clutch side heating element to insulate the heater from the aluminum bar heat sink. On my bikes, I make the electrical connection to the hot AC lead to the headlight.

Every year there are more and more heated grip models released to the market. I didnt find any posts about them. However I have seen many reports about grinding bars to put heated grips on ktm. Symtec produces few different models. Which one is the best for KTM?

I just googled Symtec grip heaters and find the actual Symtec website confusing but found the correct Symtec units at Revzilla , Ebay, Motorcycle Superstore, etc for about $53. Note that no grinding of bars is necessary.
