I know there was a thread before about grip cover so that can go on over the heated grips. I found the covers online and wanted to know if the one size listed for the goldwing are better suited or should I get the ones for the HD bikes as they may be more along the same diameter? Anyone that has these and know which one she I will need for a Victory cross country magnum.
Grip Puppies adhere to the handle bar grip very well.
Enlarge the present handle bar grip to fit a large hand better.
Don't slide (if installed correctly).
Use soapy water (dish soap) to get the Grip Puppy slick. Roll it onto itself 1/2 way then, slip the whole thing onto the existing handle bar grip. Roll Grip Puppy back onto the handle bar grip to finished length. Cut off excess (but, not before you've got the grip on nicely). DON'T try to fit the Grip Puppy by pre-cutting before installation!
The OEM heaters work, the feel's VERY GOOD 'cuz it's a larger grip (forget those OEM wiener grips) 'n, ya feel more comfortable as the Grip Puppies absorb some of the street vibration.
Had 'em for years....
Grip Puppies were my first mod on my Concours. Heated grips work great with them, comfortable, increase the diameter of the small stock grips, and cut the vibrations. The only two things I'm not sure about yet are how much water they will hold when caught in the rain (they are spongy) and how well they will hold up. Even if they don't last long, they cost less than $20, so I figured they were worth trying. It would be easy to remove if they don't work out. Plan on wrestling with then a bit to get them on and don't be stingy with the soapy water. Put it on the grip and the inside of the Grip Puppies.
I measured twice and cut once before installing. No issues, but I can see where installing then cutting might not be a bad idea @DAVEofSAC.
