Pro Grip 842 Gel Duo Density Cruiser Grip
High quality, easy installation, comfortable
It's surprising how we take handgrips for granted. I did, until I realized the old rubber on my Norton Commando grips had become hard as steel and my hands were more sore than on my sportbike with the gel grips. I shopped around for the best grips, regardless of price and these stood out. An inexpensive fix, but very important and I am pleased by the increased comfort and lessened vibration. Installation was easy (and that's not always so with grips) due to the proper sizing of the inside diameter by the manufacturer.

Great replacement grip
I put these on my 1980 Yamaha Midnight Special when I needed to remove the old ones to install grip heaters. They went on well with a bit of dish soap and were locked in place after about 24 hours. They feel groovy and really reduce the vibration in the handlebars. Like most of the softer gel grips, I don't expect they'll last more than a few years, but I'll gladly put on another set at that time.

Good product, best price
You can look for a better grip, but for this price this is a great item. Grips well, and the vibe is well reduced.

Eases hand buzz a bit. Not a cure-all but better.
Got this dual density hand grip to reduce a buzzy hand. I have a VFR800 with bar ends, so had to trim the ends off these grips to fit. Installation was easy with dishwashing soap solution as lubricant. Have to leave overnight to dry or else still moves if you try to use right away. Good point with that is that you can make adjustment before leaving it overnight to dry. Performance wise, the grip is has a nice feel to it and the buzzy feeling I get in my hand is reduced. It has not completely gone away, but is noticeably improved that i consider this change a success.

Overall, better than what I expected especially being installed on a sportsbike.
Thus far after some long rides, "dead hand" has been eliminated.

Comfortable & Vibration Absorption
Very comfortable grips and they do help with vibration absorption. Soft and grippy with bare hands or gloves. I hope they keep their "gel" feel on the outside for a long time, but only time will tell. If you want comfortable grips that help with vibration absorption, I would definitely recommend these.

Gel Grips gggggrippy!
Put these over existing scooter grips by cutting ends off to allow bar ends to fit. Feel and look nice. Obviously larger diameter with both grips but feels beefier while softer. Very nice... It minimized dead hand.
Hope they hold up. I think they will....
