Tachometer & Heated Grips & Heated Vest

Has anyone investigated installing a tachometer on the CMX500 ?

Do we have the electric capacity to use heated grips and a heated vest?

As far as I can tell there's a digital Koso tachometer that works, but doesn't really fit the look of the bike.
It's only a matter of time I think until a replacement speedometer w/ tachometer will be available.

I put the Koso on just to get in tune with the bike. It's gone now, and it served its purpose. Also, there is a spare 7.5a fused circuit available, which is adequate for grips. Adding a plug-in for a heated vest? That's gonna depend on the vest.

Has anyone added heated grips? My wife is in need of some. Any recommendations on them?

Just about anyone would work I suppose.
There is an outlet inside the headlight to draw power from, so shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks. Looking for suggestions as well since there are a ton of different options out there.
