heated grips

Hey guys maybe a dumb question but i recently bought a 2005 klr with heated grips. The grips on it though are shot and i ordered some basic grips from amazon. Will they work with the heated set up? Is there anything i should watch out for while changing them?

Yes, unless they are the kind where the grips have the heat elements in them. Does the heat controller have a name on it?

No, it kinda looks like a DIY job from the previous owner

Is the heat equal? Or does the throttle hand get a lot hotter?
The elements could slide off when you remove the grips. If you have to use a razor to remove the grips be very careful.
