heated grips

Looking for a power source for the grips. Behind the headlight there are two open plugs with black/yellow stripe that are keyed power on. Would one of these work, and what were they designed for.

What are my options for more fuel capacity? I need approx. 250 K's of range. Looks like Acerbis is going to make one and I haven't heard much about the KTM 13 litre as far as availability and range.
