I had some pillow top dual compound ones they were alright, then I just got some spider road grips and I'm very pleased with them. The other ones were thin and flimsy in comparison and I feel these dampen the vibration a bit more.

I have spider grips. Good grip. Must admit that I only got them because it pushed shipping on an order above the minimum for free shipping. No complaints, though.

Get any kind you like the looks of. Just make sure you get the right size for the bars you are running. They are cheap and easy to replace. I'm running dirt bike grips at the moment, they work great. And I've never used glue. They are plenty freakin tight without it. Just my

i use the cheapest pump type hairspray you can find to put the grips on... *(aquanet i think) just spray the chit out of the inside of the grip and shove it in place... after ~30 mins it will never move again....

i have not had a grip move since starting to use this stuff.... get the $1 a bottle crap.

^+1. The hairspray acts almost like a lube to help it slide on, then dries sticky. Perfect.

I use dish soap as glue. Same effect as hairspray.

+1 on the hairspray but I only use the real expensive stuff if thats what the G/F has cluttering up the shelves of my medicine cabinet, if not I use whatever she's got in there.

Hairspray is all well and good until you loan your bike to a "Death Gripper" who got cought in a rainstorm. Hairspray is water soluable, dont cha know?

I took it off and silicone glued it. BTW that POS didn't even clean my bike when he returned it. Learned my lesson. No one is ever riding my stuff again. Don't even ask.

Grips: I like the Domino's that came on my SD. They are thicker in the center and thinner towards the edges. When you lay you hand on them, there is better support for the middle of your hand. (That's just one of the many little quality touches that are on a KTM)

ODI Thug Plugs...for the minimalist look-since your vibes, if you ever had any, will be cured by the new bar.

I'm using the G2 Ergo bar end protectors on mine, you have to tap the end of the bar for the nylon insert but they have a clean look.

As I discovered, the stock ends wont go into the renthals without some fiddling. Not worth the trouble when there's so many easier bolt-on options. I like the weight of the stockers and would choose something heavier than the renthal bar ends I ended up using if I had more options here.

I've always liked Galindo Superbike grips.
Inexpensive and long lasting.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

WD40, the man's grip install lube! However, I did find the WD40 next to the hairspray on my wife's bathroom counter! I better go smell her hair!
