i prefer the renthal dual-compound half waffle grips. they last forever.

I just picked up my first pair, they seem nice. I always liked Scott grips.

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 found for me that softer grips cause me more blisters....I do not know why....I guess I grip too hard with them. I use Renthal medium or currently hard compound grips. I rarely get any blisters now.....I can not explain this.... :ride:

I have some spiders on my 125 and on my dads 250F. The only thing I have to grip about them is when I change out of my riding gear, and I am just having one last go on the trails without my gloves, I tend to have little black pieces of rubber on my hand! :applause: No thats really the only bad thing about them. They will turn your gloves black too.

I know you have a Yammi, but you might want to try the Honda, stock '05 CRF450R grips...You can pick them up for a great price, through the TT OEM store...and they work great...(although, you might have to "exacto knife" the Honda logo off the ends, to avoid a "hard time" from Yammi "die hards")...

I have fallen in love with the MSR Dominator dual density grips. They are a half waffle design with small gell diamonds on the non waffle part. I went out and bought enough pairs for all my bikes plus 3 sets for spares. The only down side I've noticed is that they are easily damaged in a fall compared to some of the other grips I've tried. Still, their comfort and feel are worth it to me.
