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.

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

i appreciate all this info
the standard grips won't work for me... and my hands aren't that large
i have NO idea why they are so small... they are made for kids

thanks again

Its possible that the grips are so small to reduce the amount of strength needed for clutch and brake use. Harley did that exact thing 2 years ago on several models, and it does work. If you clutch is a firm pull now, it will increade with a larger diameter grip.

i really don't see the issue with the grips...other then vibration.

Seat annoys me a lot more...my butt is sore after 30 mile of cruising..

I honestly did not notice the grip size. It may be that my S3 grips are small, as well. My glove size is L to XL, so I would expect to notice....

I am not bothered by the seat either but people say I am a hard ass at work, so... ;-)

I have the Rizoma grips and I don´t really feel that difference about vibrations...but let me tell you what happen to mine. The rubber breakes after no more than a year. It's a shame I haven't got any pictures, but I had to glue them, and turn the glued part to the bottom, so you don´t realize it's damaged. From my experience, don't get the Rizoma...try the Momo...they look great, or De Pretto Moto...also italian made and with a great look.

Hola Ferroman,

Almost bought the Rizomas until I saw your post. This forum is invaluable for doing research, at the expense of a few test subjects of course.
Looked at the momo grips and looks like the only ones in 22mm are the carbon and composites. The other models which I like better, the twin for instance, say 25.5mm min. Will these not work on the MV? Also how do you fit bar end weights to these?

Saludos de USA

Would USA aftermarket grips work? Don't see why they wouldn't.
