    Yes, someone took the mirrors apart and put heated grips for a snowmobile on the back of the mirrors. I can't seem to find the write up at the moment but it was a neat idea.

    Those heaters get damn hot no ones cracked a mirror yet? I know if I leave the ones on in my sled they get too hot to hold even with gloves on. I would love to have heated ones and that's a great ideal wonder how they are long term.

    The heated grips that I used had a high and low setting. I didn't even wire it for high as the low is pretty warm and all that's needed. I'm pretty sure something would crack/melt if it ran on high.
