    I was wondering what grips people out there are using. I currently have foam grips which are super comfortable but are coming apart. I'm not looking for a custom look just a durable comfortable grip. Any suggestions?

    Stock (OEM) grips

    Just checking to see if anyone might have a dusty (but in decent condition) set of the original grips thrown up on the back of the shelf they might want to sell? The price for a new set having to buy the components separately is ridiculous. Thanks, John

    Any suggestions as to where to purchase a set of stock hand grips from? I realize I could go to a Yamaha dealer, but I don't have one locally and figured someone on here could point me in the right direction. Thanks

    What grips are you running with your bar end mirrors?
