What kind of grips do you guys like to run. I ripped mine last weekend and need to get a new set. There are to many darn kinds out there and I didn't really like the ones I had.

Renthal grips are my favorive. They wear a little fast but the feel is worth it. My stepfather uses Scotts. They have a pretty good feel dont tear, rip, or wear out very easily. Also, they dont burn up your hands if you use thin/soft gloves or you forget your gloves.

Renthal, soft, half-waffles, great wear, comfortable and as said, good for smaller hands.

Guys, I'd keep checking up on the new ODI Lock-on grips. I'm not sure when they're going to be available but they are the best thing to come along in grips in a long time. if any of you are Mt. Bikers and use the ODI lock on's you know how cool and convinient these are. There was also a test on the prototypes in dirt rider I think. Basically they use a plastick tube with the grip (I saw a half waffle) bonded to it. The grip uses two collars that clamp onto the bars. The coolest thing is that you get a new throttle tube by default......and they are supposed to cost something like 12 or 13 bucks :)

I am still on the same grips that came on my bike.

Domino grips. They are simillar to the renthal half waffle everyone said they use. Ther compound is a little tougher though. MSR racing has a set of half waffles exactly the same, except for the MSRracing logo in the diamond pattern. They are made by Domino.

Pro-Tapers full waffle

I use pro grip super bike. I only recommend them if you have totally enclosed handguards. They are very soft almost gel like, they are very comfortable which = less hand fatigue :) I have about 500 hard miles and they still look like new. Just make sure to use safety wire in the groves to eliminate slippage in the rain :D Doug
