The factory installed "Hand Grip's" for me are too small (diameter) for my long finger's and purchased Kuryakyn 7/8's Universal ISO-Grips. Has anyone dont this & what is your opinion of doing so? These grip's are chrome and rubber pattern giving a more grip ability and of course larger in diameter.

What about the chrome part when rains?? could be slippery.

"over grips" can be found in most shops that deal with off road bikes---cheap slide on...Mine have lasted over 20,000 miles.

Also you can make own from AC foam pipe insulation.


Method for removal of old----cut off and throw away. New need to make sure they won't slip. Hair Spray/Gas/grip glue seems to work. Loose grips could kill you.

I installed the Kuryakyn flame grips, replacing the OEM grips. It is a lot wider than the factory ones. No problem with riding in the rain here in Hawaii. The grips have raised rubber.

Got the new grip's on along with the trickle charger connection. I know what the grip's are like, I had them on my X500 also and they sure are much more comfortable and grippy....if there is such a word !! Now awaiting my V46 Givi Mount Hardware due to come in tomorrow. At least the very cold weather give's me time to get all this done before the riding day's come.

I've had ISO grips on two of my Goldwings and really like them over the OEM ones. It takes less grip to hold the grip if you get my meaning. I really like the throttle boss that goes on the end of the throttle side grip. The rubber extending through the metal makes for good grip even when it rains. Also the weight of the metal grip obviates the need for grip end weights. The only down side is that some Kuryakyn chrome plating sometimes pits after awhile. I had one set of grips that pitted and one that didn't.

The cheapest (for me) was Grip-puppies...I am not sure on the spelling.

I, too, found the grips too narrow for my comfort so inatalled Grip-Puppies; they did the trick for me although they're not to everyone's 'taste'.
I have bought another pair as I've failed to ask Laurie if her ex-Silverwing has them; I ordered them on Amazon uk and they arrived in two days.

If you find them I'll swap them for cash, Laurie! Smile
They don't last forever so I'll have a spare pair.

I too make my own grips out of 1" dark gray pipe insulation and fasten them with two cable ties. They cut down on vibration and feels like grabbing a fat banana instead of a hot dog.

There is a company called Hotgrips  
The grips are:
Slightly larger in diameter,
Can be up to 1' wider than current and still be used on our handlebars,
Heated.
If you are going to spend a decent amount of money on new grips,
why not add functionality for the $ ?
