Bigger Grips

Looking for grips that will fit over the stock grips and make them bigger. Would like something that would just slip the stock, be reasonably price, and durable. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I've heard members mention using Grip Puppies before and being happy with them. I've never used them though and am not even sure where you get them... Hopefully someone that uses them will come along and give some insight

GP's rule. I have 15K on mine now. They're just cheap slip on foam, but they thicken up the grips and make em squishier. As good as gel in my mind and WAY cheaper.

Easy to put on with a little soap. Made near here, too, I think.

I recently put some grip puppies on mine. They help a lot with vibration in the grips and they are very comfortable.

If you live in a cold climate, oxford heater grips are a bigger grip with the bonus of heat.

Nah you don't need heated handlebars, just get heated gloves. You can change em out and take em with you. Much more convenient.
