Has anyone ever added heated hand grips for their Kynco 500i scooter?
I would like to add heated hand grips but not sure such a modification could be done.
Any comments or information would be welcome.

Can't see why heated after market grips couldn't be added to your ride.  I assume you have a standard diameter 7/8" handlebars.  Then either of the two top brands i.e. Oxford or Bikemaster have models that should work for you.  Of course you'll also need to add the wiring hookup bits as well.

I thought heated grips were standard on the AK 550.
Edit: I can't read!!! Wrong model I was thinking of.

Check the service manual to see if there is a switched circuit already in your Kymco. You want a switched power source so the grips don't run down the battery when parked. Oxford or Koso make good ones. Make sure to measure the grip length too.
