ProGrip 719 RVGS Gel Grips
No more Numb hands!
The stock grips on a 2015 R1 are terrible. My hands went numb after only a few minutes of riding. Installed these bad boys and woah, what a difference! Not too bad to install. No grip glue required, but a bit doesn't hurt. Durability wise, it's a wear item. If you ride a lot, they are going to wear down. The price to replace them is miniscule. Awesome bang for the buck! I also removed my stock bar ends and replaced with lighter Bikemaster bar ends. Helped a lot with the Vibration through the handle bars. Variety of colors, but dark grey and black fit the Factory Yamaha colors for the 2015 R1.

Just installed these bad boys on my 2015 zx10r. They look more aggressive then the stock grips and as an added bonus they reduce the vibration from the handlebars. Oh and did I mention they are super comfy? Pain in the @$$ to remove stock grips... Use rubbing alcohol and the new grips slide right on with little effort. Why haven't you bought a pair yet?

Did Not Fit
Did not fit 07 Suzuki GSXR 750. But felt good to the touch. I damaged one of them so no returning them .

I bought the red/black ProGrip 719 for my 06 CBR600RR. They are a big upgrade from the stock grips for vibration reduction and over all appearance. -1 star only because the rubber used to dampen vibration is very easy to mark up and a pain to clean. The black grips would probably be the best way to go.

Uncomfortable vibrating grips.
I usually don't like being that guy that has a negative review but these just have not been satisfactory. They look nice and were a decent price. But the first pair I got I noticed they tore within a week or two of normal city riding. Revzilla was awesome and set me up with a new pair. I tried them and my hands just feel sore. I thought they would be good for my hands since it seems like a nice gel material that would absorb vibrations but I just notice my hands being sore compared to my original grips. They do the job but just uncomfortable for my hands.

Fit my old 2011 kawasaki ninja er650f just fine. Comfortable grips. I miss them. Work well installed over heat demon heated grip wraps. Definitely felt the heat without destroying the grip.

Good so far
These grips are new to me this year. After just a couple thousand miles, they show no wear at all. They are better than standard superbike grips in that they are thicker by a few millimeters and include a gel like center section. They certainly help (but not completely) quell any annoying vibrations and have also improved my ability to go farther without a need for a break. Comfort is a 10 for a superbike grip. They work really well in the wet by not getting slick. It is reassuring when you hit bad weather that you are able to maintain a positive grip on the bars. Knowing what I know now, I would have replaced my other grips a lot sooner! P.S. Revzilla is just AWESOME!!!!! No need to go elsewhere for the same product!! Revzilla will win the day, everyday!

Looks and feels great
The colors look great and the dual compound is nice and soft. They made a huge difference with absorbing vibrations.
