Has anyone changed the GRIPS on the Brutale

The grips on my 910R are the smallest on any bike i've ever ridden since my 10-speed Schwinn . small grips contribute to aching hands on longer rides

has anyone changed his/her grips to something bigger?

You are absolutely right Greg. I have new grips on order, will report back when they arrive. The manufacturer is MOMO in Italy and they are quite a bit thicker than the stock ones.

these certainly would look great on the 910R

Sorry, but I do not agree.

I've put the Rizoma grips (same as the pics above) on my 910, and I don't like them. I feel to much vibrations and rubber is to hard for me. So I put the factory one back.

They are small, that's true, but much more smooth. It's also true that I have small hands (6 1/2).

No opinion about the momo's.

Just personnal feeling.

well....
funny thing you should mention that.....
i just got back from my dealer, to pick up my 910R after service (see my new thread with the matris M4R pictures).....
the are going to order the RIZOMA grips for me

before i left, i purchased a $14.95 neoprene grip cover pair
i put them on and road the 30 miles home
larger grips....
no vibration
neoprene isn't as STICKY as the originals, of course

i think my hands may have hurt MORE...
i think it is TIME that i REMOVED that throttle return spring we USED to talk about around here
