Lighted controls can be found here: GL1800 Lighted Handlebar Controls


Heated grips: you have quite a few options, but you're better off sticking to aftermarket rather than trying to shoehorn the overly-complex and somewhat delicate OEM heat control system into your bike. Here's one option: GL1800 Heated Comfort Grips


As for a heated seat, you again have options. You can get an aftermarket seat with heat capability built in (like a Corbin seat), or you can replace your seat with an OEM heated seat and wire it in: Installing a 2006+ heated seat in a pre-2006 GL1800
