Default Who is happy/ not happy with their bar grips?!

I need to replace my handlebar grips on my hammer, and I just don't really know which ones to go with. I read a few horror stories about increased vibrations and dicomfort with certain grips, so I'd like to avoid those issues.

Anyone really like their aftermarket grips and would recommend them? comfort would be my priority over looks.

all harley grips will work as long as there from 95 to 07. Cruser bikes have 7/8" bars so there out. Stay away from metal grips and you'll be fine.

Not sure what you mean by "stay away from metal ones" they seem to all have some metal (maybe alluminum) portion to them?!

Kind of liking the ness grips. Just not sure how comfy they are.

Looks like there are two part numbers for these grips. One for newer one for older bikes, so maybe the ones for older bikes would work for you. I just don't like the fact that they have the HD emblem on the butt. That might look kinda weird on a vic...

Oh cool, so was it a fairly straight forward install and did you get any additional vibration after the swap?

If not, I might be sold... I'm thinking about the black ones as well.
