No idea, but I'm a fan of OEM Kawasaki grips.

Re: best motorcycle grips

Progrip has a dual compound grip that has been praised by a few people I know. You can get black or they come in certain colors.

Re: best motorcycle grips

I'm kind of wondering the same thing. Trying to find something with a little more anti-vibe. I hear that Rizoma Sportline grips are good, so I'm leaning towards those.

Re: best motorcycle grips

If you want to try and iron out vibrations, you'll be better off with a set of heavier bar ends. Filling the clipons with lead shot works well too

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: best motorcycle grips

I ended up going with the Progrip 717 dual compound grips. They feel fairly gelly, but I haven't had a chance to ride with them installed yet. If I don't like these, theres always the Driven Grippy grips and the Renthal dual compound as well.
