- Bike Checks
The diameter of the grips feel the same on both sides which I really like. The half waffle pattern works great. No glue, no wire, easy to change out grips if crash at the track.
While they are easy to install, add an additional 15-20 minutes the first time to sand down the knurling on the left side of your handle bars as they will not slide over this on most bars. The small bolt on the left grip has to be VERY VERY tight to keep the grip from rotating. Tighten it down to the point were you think if you go any more it will break off, then go a little more. It will still rotate slightly.Overall Review: Overall I like these grips. I wish there was a better clamp design on the left side grip, I fear you have to go way past the torque spec on that tiny bolt to keep it tight. It would be ideal also if you didn't have to sand the knurling down on the left side of the bars.
Easy to apply and looks great on the bike, especially KTM's.
Wears out way too quickly. Thought it would last longer but you can literally wear right through it in just a matter of a few rides. Needs something better to protect the frame paint while also serving a purpose by improving grip on the bike.Overall Review: Great concept, just need to make it more durable.
looks great easy application
doesn't last longOverall Review: we bought some for our brand new 15 ktm and it works great butdidn't last long. if your looking for something that lasts longer i would suggest real frame guards like the plastic ones they sell because it will last longer for the average guy. ours lasted about 2 hrs. this would be a great product for the professional racer if you got it in bulk and it was replaced after every weekend .these guys have many other great products we use
