    I'm looking for a set of hand grips for my highball. I can't seem to find what i'm looking for. I'm looking for a nice pair of red grips. Any good sites or suggestions?

    Have you considered “grip puppies” as an alternative, or, Avon’s is most peoples go to just from lack of options I believe

    I like the Grip Puppies, but did have an issue with the throttle side. They are tight. so much so that it make my throttle stick a bit.

    Here are some "grips" for your High Ball. Important, because spillage is alcohol abuse. :biggrin:

    i was looking at the grip puppies. Not sure how i feel about them. You have any pictures of the grip puppies on? Avons are alright but heard they aren't very comfy. ISO grips I'm not a fan of the looks really. Some things tend to be fairly difficult to find for these vics

    Ah that makes sense. Definitely might give these a try. Also might work good with electric hand warmers under them.

    Great choice for the High ball. Welcome. Let’s see some pics of that HB with the red grips on.

    I have them on both bikes and they have never slipped. You use some soap to get them on and you will see they are tight. Slide them on and trim if needed.

    I love them and say they feel like I think a grip should. They open my hand and really add a level to comfort I didn't have with the stock size.

    They work fine with heated grips.

    I use the grip puppies. They're excellent but will increase the size significantly. Soft and comfortable. I had to use compressed air to install. Soap wouldn't do it.
    If you go that way install on throttle then cut smoothly using the gap between throttle and grip. Or it'll stick. Had them for 3 years now. Heat works, but not as fast or well.
    Just saw wd ones and thinking about them alot, but the puppies are comfy sooo?
