I have been riding my 05 Goldwing since buying it new this past Sept. Not many posts here but reading them all the time. I would like my grips just a little bigger. So my question is when you get after market grips and plan on using the end bar weights do the grips come with the end out, or do you have to cut them to fit. Thanks.

Red,

I didn't know that you were cheap or easy.

I learn something everyday...LOL

Yep, I pay almost $6 for a set of foam refills from Drag, #DS-243221. Easy, is that I just dip them in water and blow them on with my compressor! LOL...

I used the money I saved on custom grips to buy chrome bar end weights, $16. :oops: I also didn't want to remove the non-functioning heated grips on my '06.

You cant beat the Kury ISO grips, for a multitude of reasons. It's a very comfortable grip with lots of rubber to absorb shocks, pretty-wel eliminating the need for the vibration bars at the end of the stock grips. But the thing that I especialy like about them is this: at my age, and the age of many riders, they help to compensate for any difficulties I might have due to the onset of arthritis in my hands. Ater many years of riding with ISO grips, I recently took a friends bike for a ride (standard grips), and after about a half hour my hands and fingers ached so badly I had to quit the ride.

On top of all of this, if you wander around any large gathering of bikes (all makes and models) you'll probably see more ISO grips than anything else. And as someone else suggested, be sire to get the accompanying throttle boss...

Must be something wrong with your heated grips mine are as hot as I want and turn them down to 2nd or 3rd setting.
