Pro Grip RVGS Gel Grip 719
ehh for the money maybe
I ride a '13 R6 and I wear Alpinestars GPX gloves, and the throttle hand is torn apart through the grip to the second layer of rubber where the inside of the thumb and the grip meet. Maybe it's just a combination of the beefy material of the glove there, maybe I ride with too tight of a grip, but after 1500 miles it's time to replace them again. For $15 I guess I can't complain too much, but I still don't feel like they'd last a whole season.
That being said, they are comfy, they cut down on the vibration and the grip is great, but just based on the durability I would never buy them again.

Not much better than stock
I bought these grips to compliment a set of woodcraft clip ons that I purchesed here. These grips were a piece of cake to install...just used the hair spray trick. Once on, they felt absolutely no diff than the stock grips. In my opinion, they are no better, no worst than the OEM grips. Soooo...I put my stock grips back on.

I'm on my second set of these grips after a lowside chewed up the first set. They're great replacement grips at a bargain price, not any sort of miracle vibration removers though.
Install was easy using only some hairspray. After 6 months there was no issue with the grips moving or coming loose. Some slight fading has occurred in that time though, but it isn't noticeable unless you compare them to new grips.
I'm happy with them and would buy them a third time.

Soft and good looking
Adds more volume to the handle . Preffer this to Puppy covers. Bugger to get on without an air hose.

Decent grips but nothing special
Theses seem to be good quality, but I bought the gel grips thinking that they would help with vibration. Truthfully, I cannot tell any difference between these and any other grips I have used. As far as install, they recommend either alcohol or soap and water. I used straight liquid soap which was a mistake. The grips never dried and I had to take them off and clean everything with alcohol and put them back on, then they were fine. My mistake, not theirs. Go with the alcohol if you install.

Not bad for the price tag.
I had magor spine surgery on mar.5,2014. The vibration from long rides and riding on the highway made my hands fall a sleep with pins and needle feeling. After install these the sleeping of my hands is gone but I still get the needle feeling. For someone without my condition you'll be good with them. Did I mention you get extra grip??? Yea well it does. Advice for install... Don't cut the ones you have on your bike when your going to install these. Find someone with an compressor and use the air adapter, you'll find videos on YouTube. You won't need to use hair spray or anything. Take your time and get the job done right, short cuts or what not, won't help if something goes wrong while riding.

Not much to say, they're gel grips!
They were easier to put on than the stock grips were to come off, they're well made and are quite comfy. They helped alleviate some of the buzz in my R1's bars so I'm happy with the purchase.
