Driven Racing D-3 Grips
Word of Caution
I have to say, these grips are absolutely beautiful, and they do feel great, but a word of caution: As with any universal fit part, it's a shot in the dark if they'll actually fit right. I purchased these for a 2014 Triumph Daytona 675R, and the throttle grip quite literally doesn't fit without having to modify the plastic throttle sleeve on the bike. There are plastic tabs on the throttle sleeve that have a larger outer diameter than the inner diameter of the aluminum rings on the grips. I had to shave the tabs down on the stock throttle for these grips to be able to slide over them and the fit and finish on the throttle side is marginal. If you plan on buying, just take a good look at the throttle sleeve of your bike to determine if this is the right product for you. My next set of grips will be OEM replacements and a new throttle sleeve to go back to a factory fit and finish on the bike.

Great product. Don't get white grips
Contrary to what I read about these not having enough grip and being a waste of money, I love these. Sure the initial buy is pricey but they sell cheap replacements. My advice get the anodized aluminum in a color that will go with all the other grip colors you might want. Also in case anyone was wondering like I was the anodized aluminum is 2 separate pieces that fit around and on top of the grip. I was hoping for the money the aluminum ran the whole grip. White is super hard to keep clean. Still need to figure out what cleaner will clean it effectively but not destroy the rubber grip overtime. Because you would have to clean the white daily to keep it white. Also the d-axis bar ends are sick. Still really pricey but Driven products tend to always be on the high end. So don't complain about price. No one is making you buy anything. I included a pic of the old grips and bar ends and then the driven grips and bar ends.

The Silver and Black grips match perfectly with the Silver and Black LighTech Modular Series Bar Ends. I could not ask for a better looking and feeling products.

Between the delivery speed and overall quality of this product is just amazing! Definitely suggested easy install and nice finish for your bike.

the white grips look the best... until your first ride
good product, but would not recommend going with the white grips as they are nearly impossible to keep clean.
install is the most unpleasant part of the experience by far.\:
wd 40 is your friend in regards to that.
if you're like me and already bought the white grips engine degreaser is your best bet to clean them off

Good option for newer riders
I had all rubber grips and they were too sticky with my gloves. After swapping to these, it is a lot easier to disengage the throttle. Not to mention they look great!

Good grips but installing on cbr500r was a pain
Cbr500r turns out to have these little spikes at the edge of the handlebar making the grips too small to fit in, after some grinding with sand paper I was able to get it in on the throttle side, but the rubber covered by the bigger ring was damaged, maybe some spike caught it when I was trying it on and then ripped open a little hole. The grips feel "grippy" and firm, the vibration also reduced a lot. I couldn't get the bar end in for some reason, going to ask the guys at the garage when I have time... Or I'll just wait until I get the new woodcraft ones :P
