The oem ones are all I use now. Plug and play, work great, and reliable. I've tried others. Either they are hard to figure out how to wire due to poor instructions, or the function of them isn't that good.

OEM all the way. The connections are already there in your harness and probably the cutouts your headlight pod. So it makes for a super clean install. I got mine off Amazon and eBay. Looking around, I never found much of a price difference between different sources. Expect to pay about $45-$50 for each set. At least thats what I paid.

Ok thanks. I saw them on amazon and didn't know if that was the going price.

Dealer should have them on the shelf for about $80 for the whole setup.
i wish i thought about it when i picked my machine up last week. and too bad the dealer 3 miles from work are complete...ill leave out the other word. but needless to say i wont step foot on their property anymore

ill see if i can find a dealer selling them online.

^ lol i bought mine there, i wont go back.

i took mine to Higgin Powersports in Barre MA when the Crank Gear spun.

I Had a heated talk with the Service Manager, Armando at Moms. he scanned it for code and pushed it to the back of the shop even with me having an appointment. told me it would be a week before he got back to it. I called Polaris, he called me to tell me im now shit out of luck..... i went in and took my machine out of there in pieces.

Where abouts in RI are you? im in MA in Taunton, Near the Dighton line. i used to work in EP

ok all you guys with the polaris hand and thumb warmers.. question for you! how hard is it to add the thumb warmer after the fact? im thinking on just getting the grip warmers and see how they are then if needed i can add the thumb portion.

Mine was very easy. It took me longer to cut out the slot for the switch. I was able to use the same ground and switched power wire as my hand warmers. Total time spent was 10 min on the quad and mabue 20 on the bench with a utility knife.
