hey you crazy kids -

slapped on my new billet grips - man i love these dam things - they feel great

i fist slapped in some white lithium grease only on the throttle side
slid that on .. the left side holds on with 3 set screws
i had to adjust the cables once installed - when the bars were kicked to the far right the throtle would not return to closed position - little playing with the screws and whamo all is great !

the tips are super sharp - i was like wtf - they are just tooooo sharp
but they set the bars off so nice

im still waiting for my kuryakyn velociraptor air intake - dam backorder - hmmmmfff - this will add a little more chromey to the look i want
anyways ill post that up when i get it in mail - but for now heres the pix

Love your grips, but think I will wait a while before I change my grips! :-D

hmmm... is it hard or soft when you hold it ? I'd love to feel soft a little bit...
But it looks cool on the bike.

I mean I like the grip got a little rubber, so it's soft to hold on. ( I ride with bare hands most of the time :) )

My bro' has a set of these on his Vulcan, and yes they are pretty sharp, much more so than the Kuryakyn set. I dig 'em big time, but I can't say I'm too big on the lack of grip, even with leather gloves.

well after the ride yesterday i would have to say that the new bilet grips are 100% better then the stock junk- what little hand vibration i did have is complete gone -
the grip is thinner in size and easier to grip for me at least - thought i would have problem with slipping or gripping but not at all - the feel and look are 10 fold..

I know someone w/ those grips, my issues are, they'll get hot as he ll in the sun, slippery when wet and that point is sharp. It will get you if you're not careful. Glad you like them though. Wouldn't be my choice for grips.

No, mine are not sharp and the tip is rounded/blunt at the end, not a point.
The ones on elf's bike will def break the skin.
