LED light bar kit?

I've read that people who have the LED light bar kit that Cub Cadet makes, really like it.
http://www.mtdparts.com/equipment/mtdparts/led-light-bar-kit-753-08484

I'd like one on my 524, but I can't tell if this kit will work in conjunction with the heated grips I've installed? Does the harness for it come with a splitter to tap into the generator output, or will I have to cut and splice myself? I was trying to find the installation instructions for this online, but haven't found it yet.

Posting the engine numbers might be helpful in tracking down what it has and how much juice it can supply.

Hi CaddyDaddy
I tried to get some pics of my light bar to post but they didn't turn out so well. We haven't had any snow so I haven't had it out. I'll try to post what I have . The light bar has a connector that plugs in to another connector. Not sure if your machine would have the connector or if you would have to cut and splice it in. I'll try to get the pics that I do have up today.
It's such a terrific idea. And it sure throws a lot of light. I may have mentioned this in another post but I have to say it again. Another great innovation brought to us by Cub Cadet !!

I'm not so worried about the power output, since I wouldn't think these LEDs would draw that much.
It's the 208cc Powermore engine. I'm not sure what the output is though.

Pictures would be great!

My 524 has a connector for the light up on the handlebars and now a splitter to go to the heated grips I put on. So, I'm not sure if these LEDs come with another splitter to put them inline, or not.

How does it attach to the impeller housing? Bolt on, or double sided tape?

I think it attaches with bot double sided tape and bolts. I believe there are a couple of bolts for sure. When I get home I'll have a closer look . I am guessing the lightbar would perhaps come with a connector but I couldn't say for sure

Here are some pics of my light bar. I apologize they are not great. We're supposed to have snow tomorrow so when I have it outside I'll get some better pictures
