Normal size?You know,Ive never measured them.I think they might be a little narrower than the 1100.
And the grips,well for me,I prefer the largest cushiest ones I can find.I'm not racing this thing,I want the comfy ride.

I think they are 7/8. I can check in the morning. I like the big foam grips. Helps with the vibrations... ;)
How many times do I have to tell ya,,, The right tool for the right job!

I like the Kuryakin Iso grips :

They are vibration adsorbing, and look great as well...
and the tiny Speed set rest under your right wrist is a bonus.

As well, you caN get decorative outer rings that match your bike if you really want it to be fancy !!
