So, in the last couple of days I managed to install Kimpex hand and thumb warmers, Cobra Powermadd quick release windshield and a fused battery access cable. I managed to save the original grips using compressor air nozzle (thanks to another member for that great tip!)
The new hand warmers were tricky and needed persuasion with a mallet and chunk of 2x4, but got them on. Used a very small amount of JB Weld HighHeat to epoxy to the bars.
Wiring was easy using the switched aux power already fused at 10amps. Kodiak came with a dual breakout cable for the aux feed.
While under the hood I installed a fused battery link cable for charging/ boosting 15 amp limited (Amazon less than $15?)
Now I just need daylight time to ride haha!
I tested the hand warmers (although not very cold yet) and they worked nicely!
The windshield works great, it will be definitely appreciated during the cold riding coming soon ! The mounts for the windshield were also tricky and took adjustments, not a hardware issue but as we all know the kodiak handlebar space is tight if you have other components attached.

One thing I forgot to mention; when doing the wiring I noticed how very loose the negative post screw was? It was just beyond finger tight! Had I not done any wiring this would have been a issue on the trails somewhere. Just letting everyone know that this was from factory or dealer; I have only 325 kms on bike and don’t do extreme technical riding.
