hey guys,

I have been checking out the grips ect on the dlxprodox site and OMFG I'm in love they are freakin hot!!

Question is are they practical to put on a bike that gets ridden a lot?

Has anyone got them what are they like to ride with?

I have the Kury ISO grips with a throttle boss & stiletto ends! Like there ad says all day comfort.
Hope that you & your bike have been high & dry!

I would have to agree with diesel747, the Kuryakyn grips are definetly the way to go for someone that puts some miles on!

I have the DLX black spike gunner grips and love them not the greatest for comfort but looks over comfort for me. I have a thread with pics in it can't find it now but ill get it later.

Personally I find the Supreme "pro smooth" grips more comfortable that the Kury ones. I was checking out the Avon comfort grips over at Arlen Ness this week and I think they would blow everything esle out of the water comfort wise and they look great too!

I have the Xoprodox shooters. My only gripe is that my thumbs get cold. Im pretty sure tho that was because it was about 25 out. They are a big larger in diameter, so if you have small hands, that may be a problem. I had the ISO grips and didnt notice much difference in comfort.

I'll second that. Actually I found the stock grips to be OK, they just didn't match my forwards.

I ordered DLX forwards and grips and not once did the thought of comfort cross my mind. I bought them on looks alone they do not look comfortable nor do I expect them to be. If your looking for comfort I would definitely look somewhere else.

There is a small sacrifice with custom grips. I have the Black Raptor (Tapered, smaller diameter in the center of the grip) and find that my enjoyment of the looks exceeds my comfort needs. I ride everyday to work, about 25 miles each way and don't have any issues.

ive been thinking about the dlx old school black diamond... but it never occurred to me think about comfort. i'm mainly a weekend rider... my avg is about 100mi rides on saturdays. todays ride i was cruising on some back roads and noticed it was nice having the rubber sleeve on my stocks.

reading this makes me reconsider... maybe i should be considering the old school black raptors now with the center rubber sleeve.

MMMMM you guys always give me heaps to consider:confused:......I have small hands...well really small hands so that's got to come into play cause I cant change them....I try to ride most days and my idea of a weekend splat is usually up around the 3 to 400klm mark.

Sigh those dlx's are sooo hot though....like foreplay only better :p(crap did I say that out loud??)

Maybe I should look at some of your other suggestions first.

Thanks Guys

Oh fury and I are fine, my house is amazingly in one piece but my yard is whole different kettle of fish...thanks for askin deisel:D

The one thing I do like about the shooters is that they get alot smaller in diameter towards the center. I hate to say it, but the iso's are too common and they remind me of Dave's sausage seat.:eek:

The Kury and Avon grips may be a little to "fat" for small hands, best to try them first. If you like the Avon grips there is a guy on ebay AU selling them for about AU $80 which is a great deal as they are normally AU $140. Ness had them on the floor for US $65. The billet grips will be a little thinner than stock in some cases so they might be a good option.

Here is a link to the Supreme grips. Bill gives Fury Forum members big discounts so if you like them ask him for your Fury Forum discount which is about 20%. As I said I have the Pro Smooth grips in chrome and I am totaly happy with them and the quality.

Been running with Avon grips since the bike was almost new... comfortable on long rides... Mind you, I got big hands... not sure how they'd work for someone with small palms/short fingers. They do limit transmission of road vibration and as I said very comfortable on long rides... Had a small problem with one grip... Avon simply sent me a new one... great customer service!
