Grip suggestions Please

Post by sportsfreaked »



Hello to all. I have an 08 with original heated grips. My Rheumatoid Arthritis is really affecting my hands and it's getting hard to grip the original grips. What are some heated replacement grips that work well that are bigger. Can the new grips be wired in to the existing control? Thanks for any and all suggestions it's greatly appreciated.

Definitely those or these grip puppies. The heat will go through them and they are a better feel than stock diameter grips.

Yep. Those foam 'grip enlargers' certainly work. The heat (when needed) is only slightly delayed due to them being on. I think I was informed about these probably a dozen years ago now.

I tend to keep a set handy in the event one of them (typically throttle side) gets chewed up.

I dealt with carpal tunnel for years and it certainly helped.

Luck to ya!
