These are the grips that were on my bike when I bought it... do they look familiar to anyone? Are they good? I'm thinking of buying a spare set incase I don't like them.
Any suggestions on replacement grips??? (Sorry about the picture, my little brother took it 'cause I'm overseas.)

those monster grips are made by Harris.

I've used Rizomas and Pro-Grip gels, of those and the stock grips, my grip of choice is the Pro-Grip gels. But I've never ridden with the Harris grips. I've seen them and they look very hard, not my choice.



I suggest waiting to see if you like the Harris grips first, as rubber grips are relatively inexpensive and very common to find. The Pro-grips gels can be found for $11 a pair.

I had those grips before the rizomas that are currently on my bike, and they were made of a pretty hard rubber, not much, if any, cushioning. So they're pretty much for looks alone, and personally I thought the "monster" graphics look a little cheap. I haven't tried progels, but I've heard good things.

Quick question with the progels. I bought a pair but haven't put them on yet. I noticed that the throttle tube has a flair on the inboard side. Do the ProGrips fit over the flair?

I've got tomaselli grips on mine, hard as hell but really good for feel. Maybe a tad hard on the hands but i can hack it!
