Looking for a set of quality grips

Hello All,

I have a 2015 F3 800 and I am looking to change out my grips, to be honest I am looking to do this mostly for looks, as I am completely satisfied with the stock grips. That being said I am looking for a quality set of grips (and willing to pay for quality). I saw a set of puig grips on design courses website link here: (https://www.designcorse.com/collecti...ant=4231063169). They are relatively inexspensive, look the part, and I know puig is a known name (although mostly for wind screens). Can anyone provide any input on this or steer me towards something you guys would reccomend? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!!

I am also interested in this but I mainly need grips so that they are just a tad thicker than stock. So far the only ones I've found that appear to be decent are Rizoma but I don't think they're any thicker.

Coop,

The Puig ones look very similar to the Rizoma sports grips. I ran a set of Rizomas for a couple of years. Not very good I found. Look good but grip is crap and control definitely suffers for it. Diameter is too small. The Rizoma bar ends are also crap as they always came loose and moved out. Was going to put the standard ones back but tried the Domino race grips. They don't fit the throttle plastic properly so looks suffer a bit if anyone notices but control and grip are fantastic. I really noticed the improvement straight away.

Cheers

I only use Pro Grips 717 on both my MV and S4RS. They are soft so don't last very long but that is why they are comfortable. Also not expensive.

Got mine from the UK..

You can see them buried somewhere in my build thread..

Heated grips. I loves 'em.
But then I live in sunny Lancashire.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

Gah. An air temp of 24C is a "maybe 5 days a year really hot day" temperature. Today it was 12 and cloudy. Which I felt was a good day. Wearing shorts and tee shirt.

Man, in summer here that's the overnight temperature for a couple of months. Beautiful riding weather in winter though, 15-28C average for a few months.
