I need some new hand grips for the '87 I'm working on. What do you recommend?
I always liked those. Grip puppies work well too.
I like the shape of those. Do they need to install over the top of existing grips? In my case, the existing grips are in really bad shape, so would just want to install them directly on the handlebars, if possible.
Thanks, but no thanks. I'll only be riding this bike in warm/hot weather. It would suck if the grips were warm.Keep all your grips where they are and put Hot Hands over them. Hot hands are the best grips in the world. Nobody should use any other grips than Hot Hands. Everyone should put hot hands on their TW.
I slid the Grip Puppies over the stock grips for that very reason. I have large hands and small diameter grips are brutal.what about larger diameter grips?
both the ones on the TW and the DR are so small that it causes my hands/fingers to ache trying to wrap my fingers around them.
Most of the time i windup with just the curve of my palm controlling the throttle and left side just resting on the grip.
The throttle does have a palm throttle and it does help some.
I thought i had gotten larger grips for the DR, but if they are any larger diameter, i can't really tell for sure.
They are about 1/3 thicker than stock, softer rubber and with all the holes more flexible. The stock are thinner rubber with spread out ribs - my hands would fall asleep with them (stock grips) on long climbs or descents. I was surprised how thick the progrips were when I cut off the ends to put the hand guards on - they seem to be holding up well also....Those are the ones i have on the DR. They are sorta comfy, but i don't really see that much increase in diameter.
