Handle bar grips?

'ave ya got a fav?

I've been converted to Renthal Kevlar Road Race, they came (newish) on the ninja, done 4k miles and they're poked :upset: 
They're soft/v soft (less vibration?), grippy, fit me hands a treat....A strange colour yes.....never mind, another pair to be ordered :smile

grip puppies, too. Brilliant for painful hands and not expensive. And you can use them with heated grips :smile

provided the bars do NOT have the electrics running through the handle bars you could fill them with expanding foam (an old fix for vibrating bars) or try a different (heavier or lighter) bar end weight, but you could end up with a selection of end weights by the time you find the right one.

Way beyond my tiny brain. It did have heated grips. I got the info re Grip Puppies off a forum (cannot remember which).

Approached BM several times, they said nowt wrong with the bike (they will wont they) and sent me on my way.
I sold it soon after with a massive 1600 miles on it.:smiley:

Heated gloves...

are the answer. Bought some Gerbing ones at the NEC and they are brill in winter. The Tiger 800 has a socket as standard on the bars so no probs plugging them in. Heats your whole hand, not just your palms like grips do. £150 though so not cheap but will last for years and long warranty on them.
