Biltwell Thruster 1 Grips
Easy and nice
Excellent grip. It was easy to install them and once they were mounted the style/look of the bike was great.

they look really good and are very comfy.
The install was pretty simple with soap an water. The looks are amazing.

I was looking for a brown 7/8th grip to match the seat on my GL1000. This was basically my only choice. However, I LOVE Biltwell products and the style and feel of these grips. Very happy with my purchase.
Here is a video review. Revzilla doesn't recognize Vimeo for some reason...

split the ends getting these on
Installed the clutch side without issue, but the throttle side split in two places shortly after installing. They look rad but it sucks that they split so easily. Had to safety wire the ends and use bar ends

Great, but could use a couple of improvements.
I like the Hersheys milk choclate brown color I ordered, and the grippy mixture and texture. And they are thick, so there is plenty to grab ahold of, on a 7/8' handlebar.
Negatives?.. The holes are slightly small, so they are a bit of a pain to slide on, even after being soaked a hot soapy water solution for a few minutes. Also, I wish that a groove was molded into each of the ends, to make it easier to cut off the ends for bar end mirrors.
They have only been on for a week, so I am unsure how durable they will be, but they appear to be well made, so far.

These grips look great and feel great. They are also very affordable and if you are into this specific look all the soft grips that biltwell makes look the part.

Good looking grips
The problem I have with a lot of rubber grips is they look/feel cheap. What I like about these grips is they feel like my BMX grips, really comfortable and they take out a lot of that unwanted vibration. I'd recommend these or the Kung Fu grips.
