Any suggestions on who sells the best grips for GL1100I?

Kuryackin Iso Grips seems to be one of the overwhelming favorites. I also liked the foam grips but the foam does break down after a while.

I like the foam grips, they give a comfortable grip for long-distance rides. I find they last a good 4-5 years before they start to break down and need replacement.

yes, my son was twisting the left grip on my new Iso grips. Seems as though the glue that Kuryakin puts on between the metal and the rubber to hold the Iso part in cam loose. Now the grip twists, the rubber is glued to my handle bars but the grip itself will twist now. I am going to talk to Kuryakin at Americade this week to see if there is anything I can do about it.

Until then I have to teach my son you twist the right grip not the left. But don't twist the right one because it will flood the engine.

I* have had the Kury ISO grips on my 1100 for about 4 years and I am very satisfied. They are comfortable and look good.
