Johar foam grips

Postby KDXer » 12:26 pm Mar 14 2007

These things are the best thing sinced slided bread. They are closed cell foam grips that help with a range of things. Ergonomically speaking they are awesome for big handed people giving a much better feel and more secure grip. Standard grips now feel like a broom handle. They help reduce or eliminate arm pump, hand cramps and blisters amoungst other things. They apparently out last convention rubber grips by several pairs. A guy I know has run them for 4yrs so far on the same grips and they still look great. They come in red, black and blue AFAIK. Top bit of gear !!! I give them 4 out of 5 supz :supz: :supz: :supz: :supz: I would have given them 5/5 if they came in green. :mrgreen:

I'll update with close ups fitted on my bike shortly.

For those of us with larger than 'normal' hand size these things are simply awesome. They give me a much more secure feel and as mentioned earlier they reduce or eliminate blisters, armpump, cramps and fatigue in your hands and arms. I'll get some pics shortly to show the diffence in size between stockers and these. I have had a few buddies comment that they feel TOO big but they all have smaller than average hands. I won't be going back to conventional rubber grips EVER !!!

I had very similar grips on my old yomama XV920RJ street bike. really helped tame the vibration. never thought of using them on a dirt bike, would have thought they were too mushy.
