Driven Racing Grippy Grips
Bought these to replace OEM grips on my R3. Left hand went on and stays in place. Throttle on R3 is different. R3 throttle side has bumps on the surface and slits on the ends where the OEM grips fit in. These grips do not have cut outs for the bumps or the slits. So, the grip moves. It has never made me feel unsafe. I might install some wire to lock down the grip.
Grips help reduce vibrations and is more comfortable than the OEM grips. This is the main reason I bought them and am satisfied with the purchase.

Great for bigger bikes
Nice grips for a big bike, longer/thicker than your typical dirt bike grips and with open ends. Will buy again just to have around or to get the min for free shipping on next order. Installed on a BMW 650 with safety wire always. Best grips so far on this ride.

'Universal Fit'--not for GSX-R's
I purchased the thin Grippy Grips. Overall, they are true to their name; they are thin and very 'grippy' in comparison to my stock grips. However, the fitment is not Universal (at least for my bike, a 2013 Suzuki GSX-R 750).
For starters, both of the grips are roughly 1/4 - 1/3 of an inch longer than the stock, so be prepared to cut them shorter. In addition, GSX-R's have notches in the business end of the throttle assembly which lock into the stock grips; these do not and you essentially have to leave them offset to the right.
As far as installation goes; the left hand side was reasonable with some elbow grease, but the throttle side was next to impossible.
I would warn other GSX-R owners to stay away from these Grips. I would not have even installed them, but I cut my other grips off and didn't realize until it was too late.
I don't want to put too much blame on Driven for this; since I'm sure there are other bikes that these fit quite well on, but Revzilla should not have these show up on search results for GSX-R parts. They 'fit" as in they fit around the 7/8in clip-ons, but they aren't made for GSX-R throttle assembly's and they are too long for the stock clip-ons.
TL;DR Pretty nice grips, but they don't (really) fit GSX-R's.

my go-to grips
these are the grips i get whenever i gotta replace em. simple, comfortable, and cheap. it's prob not recommended, but i don't even use grip glue anymore. they go on tight and don't stretch over time, i've never had a slipping issue without glue and it's much cleaner and easier. makes swapping a cinch.

These grips are reaaallly grippy, especially if you ride with any sport-oriented glove. The little "spikes" can get rough if you ride without gloves. They were kinda tough to get on there, but that's expected. Love the fact that they dont have ends, it let me keep my bar end mirrors on. I would recommend.

Really great grips, still seems a bit more vibration coming from the bars than I would like. Although it could be coming from somewhere else. I would recommend these grips for a nice grip feel.

Good, but require modification for some bikes
Some bikes, including my ZX10R have a raised lip around each end of the throttle tube that fits into channels on the inner part of the stock grip. These Driven grips DO NOT have these channels, and will not fit properly unless you either cut them yourself with a razor knife (which is what I did) or grind the lips on the throttle tube away (which I wouldn't recommend).
Other than that issue, these are a huge improvement over the stock grips. I have smaller-sized hands, and the "thin" version gives me MUCH better feedback and throttle control for track riding/racing.
