  • Great grips

    One of the first things I do with a new bike is look at my points of contact with the bike namely seat, grips and floorboards or pegs. Stock seats were never made to fit the human body. so it doesn't take me long before I'm stripping off the cover and shaving it down to fit me. Stock grips are also at the top of my list because you have to maintain a death grip on them just to get down the road, so I'm always shopping for something, anything to ease the pain without breaking the bank. Well, this week I fumbled and stumbled my way into one of the best deals I've found anywhere and thought I'd share that information with you guys just in case you're looking for the same. At first I thought these must be cheap plastic knock offs because at the time they were going for 23 bucks, but man are they solid well built and comfortable. For about the same price as a pair of plastic cramp busters you can get these instead...what a deal!

    They look cool. Wonder if they help reduce hand numbness so many experience with stock grips? I have thought about changing bars to mini apes and wondered if stock grips would be the best to put back on.

      I have those sans the little flippy deal on the throttle side. I like 'em. Lots of people on here recommend Avon grips.

          I have the same thing on my F6B. Definitely made the hand numbness about 95% better. Always ran stock grips on my Roadstars though. Didn’t hate them enough to change them, lol.

            I too have the same grips. love them and they have held up exceptionally well. Like the palm rest throttle as well so I can rest my hand. I still get some tingling, but I attribute that possibly due to age since it happens in the car or running equipment t work.

                  I have kuryakyns without the extra knob. They cost more than 30 lol. I got black though.

                    Hey, that's why I posted the eBay listing. For less then $30 you can get a quality grip with a palm rest...man that's a steal!

                  Like the lights, you have a name/link on those too?

                  I just ordered a set to replace the 15 year old Kuryakyn grips that were beginnig to show chrome pitting. I am hoping they will be as confortable as the Kury.

                    I used Avon grips for my last 3 project bikes and I have one now. I like them a lot.
