I would like to change my handgrips to something a bit softer. Mine are as hard as a rock. I don't need heated here in SWFL. Anyone have any suggestions?

Dunno if they make them in 7/8, but I've heard good things about Kuryakyn Kung Fu grips

Grip Puppies.

They are not to everyone's liking but they suit my hands.

Hankster,
I installed Kuryakyn flame style grips on my 2002 Swing because the original ones started slipping. I did not like it because it made the grip wider for my small hands. I have the original grips on my 2013 and do not have any plans to replace them.

I ended up going to the local bike shop and getting some neoprene hand grips. They are a bit soft and have a lot of grip. Took a bit of work to get them on but all is good.

I use grips off a BMW RT. These are ribbed and fit ones hand better than broom handle style. They work for me.
