Grips........

Postby Rick » 08:00 pm May 07 2008

Looking for some new ones. I would like to find some that are pretty thick. I dont notice anything on the clutch side, but on the throttle side, my hand just feels like it is to big. Like my fingers are up against my palm, and i have to constantly re-adjust my hand posistion. Any ideas? I was eyeballing some Pro-Grip 791's that are Tripple Density. Thoughts? Thanks, Rick.
Yes, they really do let me drive the Train!

I've run several different grips on the past 3-4 years, and I like the Spider grips. Feel nice and soft, yet grip well and perform great when it is wet.

I am 6'-5" and have BIG hands.

Progrip 714's are my favorite due to their very large grip diameter and vibe reduction.
The fact that they are also pretty inexpensive does not hurt either.

I have put them on all my bikes.

I really like the Pro-Grip 791's. The Tripple Density seems to help on long rides and so far they are holding up well. My hands are probably a little larger than average and they fit well.

I fourth everyone else's sentiments about the Pro grips. I have them on my bike. I had Spider Grips before but they tend to thin-out pretty quick.

Another one that's good also is "Moto Grips". They have a really neat skull pattern on the grips that is not only cool looking but functional.

Wow . . . it looks like we all like progrips. I also use them as well - the ones with the pistol grip.

Progrip also makes great googles. The 3400 and 3450 work really well.
WR sold. Now have 03 and 04 KDX 220s.
