Battery Drain

I have a battery drain on my 570 Sportsman. The only thing I can think of is I installed a set of Heat Demon heated grips and thumb heater this winter. I have it hooked to my lighter accessory so it appears to only come on when the key is on. Any suggestions?

Disconnect the negative wire(s) from the battery. Set your meter up to read amps and see how much of a draw there is.
