I'm trying to find something that will slide over the stock grips to make them a little thicker. I found one website called Grip-tek.com but was unsure what size diameter to buy. I did not know if they meant the bar diameter or the bar with grip diameter included. What are other people using? I know that I could switch grips but would prefer not to at this time. Thanks for any input.

I also use the foam grips from the Bulldawg at Shinhopples. Great people to deal with and really good price. Which ever you buy it will make a big improvement at least it did for me. Getting old ain't for sissies!

No, and the OP wasn't being specific, but it's what many (myself included...) to remedy that issue.

Are you thinking of the Kuryakyn iso grips?

Grip Puppies, regardless who sells them are the way to go. Notice the correct size for the Goldwing is 5 1/2" long. The cheaper version and a tad shorter will slide forward and back a little bit if they get really wet.

Shinhopples is half the price of the attached link.

The foam ones are great for heated grips. Totally eliminates hot spots and transfers heat just as well. No, they do not "hold" water. Closed cell foam, just wipe dry.

ShinGrips (grip puppies from Shinhopples) are the best. I've gone through a 3 sets in 100K miles.
Go to the link above for direct line to the item on the Shinhopples web site. Or better yet, give them a call and if you're lucky you will get to talk with Michelle, better knows as Meesh, the owner and top dog of the place. She will be a joy to talk with, and you get great customer service. If you're not so lucky you'll have to talk with her assistant also know as Bulldog (Dawg). He'll take good care of you also, you'll just need to sort through the New Yawk, east coast, accent and a few stories about the weather and other local happening in beautiful downtown Woodbourne. Just tell 'em C.J. sent ya.

This thread reminded me to order another pair of Shinhopples foam grips. Mine are over four years old and just now starting to show some age deterioration. I'll probably wait until after this riding season is over to put them on.
