What grips would you recommend for my 2004 Yz 450f, that tend to create the least amount of blisters, and raw hands?? My stock grips are worn out, and I want to upgrade. Are the gel type effective? or is that a marketing gimmick?? Also do softer or harder style grips tend to create more blister??/ Let me know your experience. Don

I have renthals on my 450 and they are pretty good. On my 250 I have a set of the pro grips, they are softer and feel really good. Hope that helps.

I find that if your getting blisters, then the gloves you wear are likley more to blame. I use Scott grips and they have never been a problem.

I've tried them all and none of them are as comfortable as the stockers.

Thanks for the info....I'm gonna check out the Spider's, they look interesting. I'm also going to make sure it's not my gloves.

ProGrip gel grips (Model 714 or 737) are the best most comfortable grips that I have ever tried. They are inexpensive, long-lasting and slightly wider in diameter than regular grips.

Try spider grips, they are a little pricey but very comfortable

Spider grips are the only way to go! Duel compound, so they are soft but they last forever!
