Re: Grips

I want to feel as if I am touching the ground. I dont want anything that would dampen the feel I get through the bike. No bar end weights, no squishy grips. I dont even like a stock seat (although I am using one right now).

Re: Grips

I use Driven grips,(Not them stupid D3s) after switching from Renthals. I like the driven a little better because they are thicker than the Renthals without losing the feel.

Re: Grips

I've been using these Spider Peak grips lately. Thinner at the inside for feel and thicker at the bar ends for comfort.

That is about the difference between the right and left sides.

29 for the clutch side, 32 for the throttle side?

I've actually seen those in person when the manufacturer stopped by our shop. Damn good grips and we will be adding them soon after seeing them in person. I would put them on par with Renthals for sure

Re: Grips

I just got the Spider Peaks for $17 shipped on eBay and they are the best grips I've tried to date. They made almost as much of a difference in perceived vibration as my weighted bar ends. I can take road trips now and the tapered cut does wonders to keep feel while absorbing vibration in the outers. Great for anyone who rides street or street and track...

Re: Grips

The Spider Peak grips had help from a tire manufacturer to produce them for their Pikes Peak winning bike. I am going off memory, but when they were in our shop I believe they said Bridgestone helped them produce the compound on them.

Re: Grips

Renthal kevlar dual-compound grips here. Have had them for months and even though the surface nubs are pretty worn, they're still just as tacky as they were when they were new.
