Looking for Grip Replacement Recommendation
« on: May 16, 2019, 01:02:54 am »
My current grip is melting and sticking, borderline dangerous. I was concerned about needing to purchase a new heated grip set but today upon further investigation I realized the heating elements are glued to the bars and the existing grips are fairly easy to remove.





Could someone recommend a touring grip that should work with the existing heating elements? I would hate to buy a set of grips that wouldn't work with the grips or fit the bike.

Thanks in advance,

I agree. Great grips... I've been using them for years.
Started using them even before Murph started carrying them, because their a comfortable fit in your hand...
Bigger than stock, but smaller than stock with Grip Puppies.
NOTE: End section will need to be trimmed off and hole added to end.  EZ to do.

Ride safe, Ted

I hav had a set of these sitting on a shelf for a few years, was going to give them Away but I think when the grip puppies wear out I will install these , my heaters don’t seem to work real well with the grip puppies over the stock grips ,maybe there will improve that !
