These are great grips! I've used them for three years, then tried the 699's. Well, I'm back to these because they have a much better feel.

I use these grips on most of my bikes because they feel more padded than standard grips. I have a little arthritis in my hands and these grips don't require me to make such a tight fist around the grip so they are more easy to hold. I highly recommend these and not just for dual sport riders.

I bought these grips to replace my worn out current ones on my 98 Magna. The "chrome" pieces on them are plastic with the chrome covering but that is to be expected for the price. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but the grips felt nice and were pleasing to the eye for me. I used a grip adhesive to install them and the left grip slid on without any issue but I noticed that the plastic chrome end cap didn't quite slide all the way onto the handlebar. This would have caused an issue of it eventually being ripped off by not having the support of the handlebar inside of it. I tampered with it for a few minutes and believe I was able to get it to fit as it felt more solid. The right side grip also installed easily with the grip adhesive but as I was putting a bit of pressure on the grip to ensure that the end cap wouldn't have the same issue as the left side, the plastic chrome end cap started to separate form the rubber grip. I wasn't prying on it or pulling it at all, rather pushing it onto the handlebar but apparently that was enough pressure to separate the cap from the grip. Upon further inspection I found that whatever method or adhesive the company uses to secure the end cap to the grip is poor and is quite susceptible to separating. I decided to remove the grips before the adhesive set and return them because this is unacceptable for a product. I understand that it is cheap and it will not be the most durable product but I would expect not to run into a quality issue right off the bat.... I am disappointed because I liked the feel and look of the grips but I will not be buying these again.

This was installed on my Triumph Street Triple R. Fit perfectly and size was well balanced to the size of the tank. The only thing I would have preferred was that it didn't have the brand name on it.

for the money these grips would be hard to beat.They are not a long lasting solution as rubber and plastic do not last that long.None the less,if they only last a couple of years you will have got your moneys worth.they do not totally eliminate the vibration but they help.these grips along with a good pair of gloves can make a big differance

I put these on my R1150R, and they worked very, very well. I sold that bike, and now I'm shopping for another pair for my newer R1150R. The gel feel makes the ride much more comfortable; they last a very long time, and they don't show wear.
