Pro Taper bars and Hot Grips brand grip heaters compatable?

Are the "Hot Grip" brand of grip heaters compatable with Pro Taper fat bars? Hot Grips are available only in 7/8 inch and 1 inch and the fat bars are 1 1/8 inch.

What size is the grip end of the Pro Taper?

Anyone have any experience with this?

Many thanks.

They are called "tapers" because they go from 1 1/8 inch at the triple clamps and taper down to 7/8 inch at the grips.

This question has popped up on numerous forums with no supplier that I know of offering a 1 1/8” bar heater. I was gutted when I switched to Renthal 1 1/8” Fat Bars and couldn’t run Polly Heaters. I have tried a number of heated grips, under-grip heaters, heated gloves but the internal ceramic bar heaters by Polly Heaters Inc are my preferred option. I have a mod to allow the Polly Heaters to be used on 1 1/8” bars
