Used for: > 1 year
Overall Rating: 5
Ease of install: 4
Would buy again: yes
Bought these because the endcap fell off the right stock grip. Didn't want to buy stock only to have it happen again, so, I went with these good looking grips with hex screws on the end caps. As stated in other reviews the glue drys fast so make sure to test them for fit before the glue. You will want the cushions facing the palm of your hand for maximum comfort. Easy to do on the left clutch side but not the throttle side since it rotates. I turned the throttle about half way set the cushions toward the palm; then let the throttle retract and marked the position with a felt marker. Adding the glue I pushed the grip on matching up the marks. Also, put thread locker on the hex screws. I didn't and later I noticed I only had one screw left holding on the endcap and it was backing out. New ones are not real expensive but not cheap. After installation they look and feel better than stock. The slightly larger feel gives more to hang on to and large cushions fight that numbing feeling in your palms on a long ride.
