What kinda grips do you guys run? My stock gixxer grips have bit the dust already, they make my hands numb. Any good ones out there with a decent price? I've also been toying with the idea of billet grips, anyone run billets???

I run pro grip. Cheap, grippy, look good. I've ridden some bikes with smooth billet grips. They SUCK!!! If you wear leather gloves, you have no grip what so ever. I do plan on getting a set of knurled billet grips. I rode a bike with a set and they rocked. You almost need gloves or they will rip your hands up.

I always wear gloves anyways, I'm thinking the vibration would be a bitch thru billets, so its kinda defeating the purpose of me getting comfy grips LOL

billets get HOT in the sun too. i can't stand a big bulky grip either. i have a big stockpile of oem suzuki grips, i use em on everything.

if you're just trying to kill some vibes, you can fill your bars with bb's and some silicon (to keep the noise away). it helps alot on most bikes.

DON'T RUN BILLET GRIPS FOR EVERYDAY RIDING!

I have them on the Daytona, and let me tell ya they are for looks only! I usually run dual compound grips, nice and comfy!!

My Hayabusa barends are hollowed out and filled with bb's and silicone... made a huge difference.

I agree with Pro Grip Gel grips, or, if you don't mind the vibration, some Renthal race grips. They have great adhesion, but low vibration absorbption.
