Poll? What Hand Grips Do You Use/Recommend?

27 posts in this topic

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!!!

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.

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.
