Hand grip warmers wiring?

I bought a 1992 Polaris Indy 500 it had a after market handle bars without hand or thumb warmers. I went to the local snowmobile junk yard and bought a used handle bar with hand and thumb warmer. I can't remember exactly how to wire it. 2 wires to each hand grip warmer a hot and a ground, ok one wire to a ground and the other to a switch, now does the power to the switch come from the voltage regulator and get the same voltage as the headlight or does the power come straight from the lighting coil? I know for a high low switch you need to install a 3 way switch with a resistor. I'm not sure how to wire the thumb warmer? just the same with hand warmer with a high low? or should I add another switch just for the thumb warmer? I know some have a wire that also goes to a light on the dash, but I don't really need that I can feel if they are on or not.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

My Indy 500 was wired up for them already... I just had to tie into the existing wiring!

Does anyone know where I might find a wiring diagram online? I don't have a manual for it.

Before you go ballistic, take your pads off and check to see if the 3 plug wires are there.

There is no pad on the goofy handle bars it has on now, the only wires are to the kill button and high low headlight switch. there is a wire harness that has been cut with snipps under the hood near the ignition switch.

Can you see any wires that are black with a blue stripe?
