Default Grips

Thinking about replacing my grips,I would like something more comfortable.On long rides my hands get numb from the vibrations.What do you guys have or recommend?

never really felt enough vibration on mine to make my hands go numb?... if you feel your hands going numb that could be a sign of holding your body up too much by the bars and not supporting enough of your weight by your legs. just a little FYI, idk ur situation though lol.

Thanks lepperfish for the google,but I thought I'd ask people on this forum who ride Hondas for their input and experience.I guess I can also buy all the grips available and test them out but that would be a little much.

i think the point he is trying to get across is that grips are not a honda specific product. if people find grips to be very comfy on a gixxer, they are going to feel the same on our bikes too. its not like figuring out which pipe sounds nice on 954's where only we would have an opinion. theyre a universal thing.....

Would it help more if I asked "What kind of grips do you have? How do you like them?Are they comfortable?What do you recommend?"

I got a set of harris grips from ebay for around 15 bucks.... and i love them. they have all different color schemes to match your bike, and for 15 bucks if you dont like them your really not wasting to much money. My throttle hand almost gets close to numb sometimes, i feel that on any bike im on....a quick shake of the hand works for me. If you want to spend a little more, ive heard driven and spyder grips are really good.

I have the ProGrip Sportbike Race grips (model 780) on my trackbike, very comfortable even after an hour of railing it. On my 954, I have the Harris Sportbike Grip with "CBR" logo. Also very comfortable. Between the two, the ProGrip has a little more cushion.
