It depends on what type of bar heaters you have (if any) as to whether they will work or not. Those hooks slide into the bar ends, then the bolt is tightened to clamp the hook in. On some sleds, the hand warmers and mounted inside the ends of the handlebars, therefore there would be no room for the hook.

On my ZR, I had to cut the grips at the end in order to slide the hooks in, but the stock grips were still utilized.

when you turn the screw, it slides the wedge apart from the hook ,so it wedges itself in

same theory as the bicycle. they come with direstions if new. sometimes you have to grind them a bit to fit inside the bars. dont worry about the heaters, almost impossible to cause any harm. a step bit or sharp razor knife works good for augering out the grip end.

Your XLT's heaters are pads on the out side of the bar, under the grip.
Hooks are good and new grips are only $20.
I like running the long grips or wrap grips to cover the hook too.
Compressed air works to get the grips off pretty well.
