Is anyone using these? If so, does the Universal model (6241) work on the Swing? AND...........of course..........DO YOU LIKE THEM? AND.......how hard/easy is the installation process?

Thanks.

I have had them for 2 years, and I would not do without them.
They are so much more comfortable than the stock because of the size. They are not difficult to install. Get the ones for the 7/8 inch bars.

I bought a pair last summer and find them very good. The universal set (6241) is the correct model for the swing. Handlebar bar size for the swing is 7/8". Very easy to install. Hardest thing was taking old ones off. I just put a thin flat screwdriver under the old ones to release the glue. I ended up buying the Kuryakan bar end weights to complement the anti vibration qualities. Not really necessary but the weights removed all the vibration I found on my handlebars.

My GW1500 has had Kuryakyn ISO grips (and ISO highway pegs) for several years now. I really like them. The optional throttle boss takes a lot of effort out of holding a steady speed on the road by relieving most of the grip effort your hand must exert to hold the throttle. The grips themselves are fairly heavy and damp vibration.

I have the Kuryakyn ISO grips and I like them. I also have the throttle boss. The larger diameter of the ISOs is much more comfortable, especially on longer rides. With the smaller grips my hands would cramp up after a certain amount of time.

Installation is easy. To remove the stock grips, remove the bar end weights and lift up the end of the grip with a screwdriver. Spray some WD-40 between the grip and the handle bar. Work your way down the grip as the adhesive loosens up. Soon you will be able to pull it off.

Just install the new Kuryakyns with your choice of adhesive. Be careful not to get adhesive between the throttle and the handle bar. I found the left handlebar to be quite a bit smaller and the gap between the ISO grips and the bar was too large to get a good bond. I had to wrap some tape around the handlebar to take up some of the gap.

Thanks all for your replies and sharing of your experiences with the grips. Seems to be a unanimous agreement on a thumbs up for these things. And I appreciate the instructions on removing the stock grips, and on installing the
ISO's.

Now, will I win the auction on ebay for a new pair now bid up to $6.06 plus $10 shipping? Stay tuned.......................................................

If you have an air compressor it's easy to remove grips. Just put a blast of air into the handlbar or between the grip and the bar and normally the grip will pop right off. I use compressed air to expand the grip while pushing it on. That way you don't really need glue. A good glue if you need it is hair spray, works good and doesn't make a mess and it's easy to clean off if it gets where you don't want it.

Thanks for the tips. I read that the original "throttle sleeve" is re-used inside the ISO grip. How does this work?

I've been finding the vibes through the bars a bit wearing after a couple of hours and feel that some better grips could help with more diam as well as a bit more damping material. There are no Kuryakyn Iso outlets here in the UK that I can see and they are so damned expensive anyway... !! Sad

Possible alternatives anyone please?

I ultimately went with Grip Puppies also and I'm happy with them. On the throttle grip, I put the Grip Puppy on over another foam slip-on grip for extra bulk and thickness, and I like that too.

I also have glued pieces of foam shoe insole - the cheaper versions of Dr. Scholl's - into the inside palm of my gloves, and this has made for a great improvement in vibration reduction and hand discomfort reduction.

The trouble with thicker gloves is that I find I lose "feel" and am not keen on it. I can remember years ago I had a Yam IT175H enduro bike that was truly awful for vibes, I had to wear special gloves like you use with a jackhammer!!
