Oem grip question

Post by chunk » Thu Aug 09, 2018 7:12 pm



I took these awful grips off my new to me gl 1100. I see that there are some kind of bar ends that are supposed to be on the end of the bars. I'm trying to find what they look like, i haven't found any pics anywhere. I have a set of Honda oem grips coming and would like to source the correct ends or suitable aftermarket ends. I wonder if anyone has any info or a picture of the oem ends, thanks for reading. Scott.

I've looked at the Honda diagrams but that really doesn't help much, since the part isn't available to buy, and i can't see what it looks like, it's just a representation of the part. What i really need is a clear picture of stock bar end from an '81 gl110 if anyone can post one. If i know what it looks like i can search some aftermarket solutions or ebay for an original set maybe. Thanks anyway. Scott.

Stock grips have a rubber end a little bit bigger than the grip itself to keep your hand from sliding off.and no shinning end cap. Run over to Parts n More and type in end caps,and you will see or get a idea of what you need or looking for. handlebar end caps,on search will also do the job. There is a nice picture on Parts-n-More of your grips
