As many on the forum have had complaints about the grips on our bikes being too narrow and skinny. Personally, after an hour or so my two middle fingers on my throttle hand get tingly and 90 minutes into my ride they become sore.
I read great reviews about this product and for $24.95 I thought I'd give it a shot. It took me only about 10 mins to install and then I took my bike out for a three hour ride.
-I had no pains/aches in my fingers on the three hour ride so that solved that problem.
-The Super Sharkskins totally blend onto the bike and look like they came stock.
-Easy to remove if they are no longer wanted or needed
-They work with our heated grips
Not So Good:
-They felt way too big and bulky at first. Even several rides later, they still feel weird to me.
It is certainly a cheap alternative to the stock grips and one I'd say is worth a try if comfort is an issue for you with the stock grips.
is a review from a bike magazine with some pics.
