Help! Replace heated grips for airhead

Hi all,
I'm almost done restoring my 95 R100RT and need to change the grips. I've looked at the way heated grips are changed for the R1100 and 1200 but the airhead doesn't have weights at the end. could someone please point me to grips that would work for the old style heated grips.
Thanks
jeff

I got some snowmobile heaters, they go under the grip. Got them with intent of putting them on the K bike, but never did.. Can try to dig up the info if needed, came out of the big catalog at a normal bike shop...

Does BMW not sell the Airhead heated grips anymore?

Jeff, on the GS I opted for snowmobile heaters (I think they're called too, work well and cheap (like $40), though you have to drill a hole at the center of your bars and feed the wiring through. I used an airhead heated grip rocker switch also.
Doesn't the bike have the OEM grips?

Here's the grips I used: Poly Grips ...you can getthem from Gary at RPM Cycles in Ventura...tell'em Rapid sent'cha......

no, I used some aftermarket rubber. the poly grips aren't grips at all...go figure...they are just the inserts, wiring,fuse, and switch.
They go inside the handlebar. That way you get touse the grips of your choice. For the GS I like used aftermarket Pro Grips
