it will probably blow the fuse if you run the winch and the grips at the same time.
for my winch wiring (will work for any electrical accessory) i went to the fuse box under the seat, found the unfused side of the fuse box (side that has power when the fuse is taken out). once i found that, i backed the terminal out of the connector, soldered my wire onto this wire and then put the terminal back in the fuse box. of course i used an in line fuse just after i got out of the fuse box, but hooking it up this way places no extra load on the existing fuse, but my circuit is still protected and switched with the key. make sure you pick a circuit with a heavy wire because the fuse is designed to burn BEFORE the wire does, pulling to many amps thru the wire itself (since we are BEFORE the fuse) will cause the wire then to be the limiting factor in our circuit and that ALWAYS ends in disaster!
