Poll? What Hand Grips Do You Use/Recommend?

HELP! After I just ordered all of my Scotts Performance stuff :thumbsup:, I realized now would be a good time to get some GOOD hand grips (since I ordered some new handlebars as well :thumbsup:). I currently have the stock grips that came with my 2000 650L and I know there has got to be something better!

I have searched all of the forums for information and recommendations, but there wasn't a lot of info, and everyone had a different recommendation. :busted:

I'm hoping that if I can get enough recommendations or comments, one or two grips will kinda stand out from the others.

I ride quite a bit on the freeways so I'm looking for something comfortable - but I also do trails, dirt, mud, jumps, etc. so I need something that will last. Any suggestions, complaints, comments would be extremely helpful.

Thanks!!!

try half-waffle grips. I used renthal ones and they were nice, you get good grip, and compfort.

I really like spider grips.

Second that

Renthal Kevlar, very comfy and soft, but last really long time. :thumbsup:

I like the stock grips as well.

I second that.

Pro-Taper dual compound soft half waffle. VERY comfy and long lasting...

Tag soft and medium. Good looks and feel nice.

Over the years I've tried just about every grip out there, some I wish I hadn't..

These suckers are the best so far, with the spiders a close second.

ProGrip

+ 1 on that!!! :thumbsup:

Pro Grip Ralley 737..... is the best grip and most comfortable out there! I have them on both my L and R and love them :thumbsup:

pro grip 714... kills vibration

I personally like the sunline double diamont pattern in the rubber color. I like these becuase they are cheap and come with wires, doughnuts and glue. If you are going to glue the grips, the most imporntant thing to do is dump glue in to the grip and on the handle bar and then install at night time so you have 8 hours to cure, otherwise they will just come off.

what tank do you have on your xrl tirebiter?

OEM Honda Full waffle. Been using them my whole life on every bike I've ever had. Never switched, never strayed, never, ever, ener, ever, had blisters. They bless you with a great set of calouses and once you get the two row bed of OEM honda calouses going, you are set for life!

i really like the stock grips...
