Default No more teenie-weenie grips

Installed Lloydz 1/4 throttle ring and a set of Grip Puppies. Let the touring begin!

Small...and you'll cut a little off. (Put the cut side near the controls, the clean end by the bar end)

Worked great.

I tried the soapy water method and that just did not work. Then I tried the air compressor and that worked so slick. Literally 20 seconds and it was on!

Did not cut any off of the left grip, fit perfect, cut a 1/4" off of the throttle side.

Have you used your grip heaters yet? Was wondering how they worked with the Grip Puppies installed. I had them on a different bike but did not have heated grips.

I have grip puppies on my Vision & the heaters work just fine-not much difference if at all.

Ive used Grip Puppies in the past - work great......but they dont last very long under hard use. If they get the slightest tear in them they just split real easy.

......there are others out there, they all do the same thing.

So the best bet....buy several pair and buy them cheap.

Grip Puppies $10 a pair.

Shinhopples Foam Grip Covers are the same thing (Ive had them side by side) and cheaper......and get even cheaper in quantity.

http://www.shop.shinhopples.com/prod...categoryId=103

1 pair $6.20
2 pair $11.90 (about what 1 pair of Puppies cost)
3 pair $16.35
4 pair $21.05 (about what 2 pair of Puppies cost)
5 pair $24.00

So if you have multiple bikes.....or wants spares THIS is the way to go.

Trust me nothing sucks worse then tearing one of these before a trip and not having a spare.

As nice as these are, the vision grips are already decent size. They do eliminate pretty much all vibration at the grip, which is very nice.

After about a week of using them I am starting to feel like I might not want them. I'm going to give them a month and see what I think then.
