All,

Will any 1" grips fit the Fury? Seems all the best grips out there are designed to only fit HD's. Is changing grips something that's fairly easy to do yourself? I feel the left side would be easy, but not sure about messing with my throttle. Thanks.

If you want to save them Kuryakyn ISO Grips Install Advice
If you don't, slit the rubber with a razor blade and peal them off. clean off the Honda glue. Do the left first to get the feel for it, it is right against the bars so you don't have to worry about damaging the throttle sleeve.
I usually try to save the stock ones,just in case, so I use a long thin screwdriver and contact cleaner, WD works just as well tho.

You may want to consider what style grip you replace them with. The stock grips may not look the nicest but they are very comfortable on the hands and you will notice a big difference if you replace them with a solid metal grip like I did. I can not get used to the new change and the feel of my ride now. Although my new choice of grips look great on the bike I now feel every vibrations the bike has to offer not to mention the cold fell and how slippery they now are. I'm not happy at all with my new choice and wished I had thought about it a little more. You would not think something so minor could make such a big difference to a ride but it does and needless to say I will be changing my grips back to something with some rubber on it to get back to the way it use to feel. I'm now looking at the comfort grips made of chrome and rubber. The write up on them say they are slightly oval to fit the comfort of your hand a little better and they are designed to reduce the vibration. A small lesson I have now learned is to not comprmise the feel of a good grip for the look.

Dave hit the nail on the head..
I put ISO grips on and they absorb the vibration.
While looks are cool, I'll take a little comfort with the looks..:)

I can't remember the the exact brand I have on there now for this is my second attempt but they are a smooth custom chrome design and look great but really do suck for comfort. I was looking for a little different look for this bike but Tony's has probably got the best and safest choice for comfort with the ISO grips. I had them on a previous bike and you can got go wrong with the comfort of them and I may eventually end up with them again but I'm still chasing down a little different look for now. HA HA What the hell its winter and there's nothing else to do other than drive yourself crazy looking at parts for you bike. That's why there is ebay so we all can unload those parts that looked so good on line and seemed like such a good idea at the time until they showed up on your door step and so say what was I thinking. You gotta love it!! Winter Sucks! Dave

I, like Dave put on metal grips onto my Fury. Although they are cold (literally) and are completely different from the stock grips, I found that the grips that I got completely fit me and the bike. They are 1 1/4" Xoprodox grips, but as the others have put it, it will be up to you on whether or not the grips you buy are the right match for you and your bike. Besides that, most installation is fairly simple (I installed mine 4 or 5 months ago and never messed with a bike before) as the others have given you some decent tips. GL on your choice for sure!

Are your 6240's as comfortable as your stockers were? I'm getting ready to mount the 6240's, along with the bar-end LED turn signals. If the 6240's aren't as comfortable as the stock grips, I could just drill and tap the stockers and mount the signals. Whatcha' think?

Cheers
To me they feel more comfortable than the stock grips did.
I also added the ISO Boss to each end, wasn't needed for the clutch side, but made it look even.

Kury here too, I have had them on my last 4 bikes, help ease carpel tunnel alot. I had mine powder coated before I put them on the Fury. I have the Kury throttle lock on it and added a left side Kury bar end weight. I took them off my VTX and now have Honda heated grips on it, (won't work on the Fury, plugs are all different) look and feel like stock but are really nice on cold days. Also Big Bike just came out with heated grips for the Fury.
