BMW Grips

I was looking for new grips to get rid of some of the bar buzz. I searched through some ST forums and found a lot of them were buying BMW sport grips. I bought a pair and got a chance to try them out tonight. They made a great difference and took a lot of the buzz out of the bars, even at highway speeds. If any one is interested I can post the part numbers for them.

I've been wanting to try the Oury's. They make the biggest difference on my mountain bike, so I figured that they would work well on the 919. Anyone try them yet?

The part numbers are; 32721458396 & 32721458395. I ordered mine from bobsbmw.com.

Here is a link to an FJR forum where they are pictured; http://www.fjrforum.com/forum//lofiv...php/t7055.html.

It may be hard to tell but they tapper from a small diameter out to a larger diameter near the bar end. Although they were a but pricey, about $30.00 with shipping, they really made a big difference. I ordered some heavy weight bar ends at the same time and I hope to get those on tomorrow. I believe the two together should eliminate most if not all the bar buzz.

The sport touring guys love the BMW grips. I had a pair on the ST1300 and they were very nice. The tapered ends make for a comfortable / versatile grip. You can shift your hand to change grip diameter and this helps from keeping the same muscles in the same position all the time. And they are ribbed for your enjoyment

I'm getting ready to put some Renthal High Road Bars on the Bandit and I'm thinking about getting another pair of these in place of the stock grips. (I was searching for some Renthal (?) grips I saw in another post when I came across this one...but still haven't found the one I was looking for. I think they were called Diamond grips maybe?
