    Thicker Handlebar Grips

    Trying to find thicker grips. Std grips on the GSXS are 33mm which appears to be thicker than most. Grips have zero give, hard as.... I'm riding barely gripping the throttle to minimise cramping. Geez its fun being old and busted

    Oxford Grips make both heated and non heated that go up to 33mm... same thickness as what I have, The Yamaha ones I had on the FZ1S were nice and thick.... don't seem to make them anymore, have "updated" them to something slimmer

    Bought some of those foam thingos that slide on over existing... waste of money. As the existing grips are quite thick the foam split being put on

    Maybe some surf fishing rod grips??

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    I have the foam over grips from eBay on both my bikes as I get cramps in my hands after about 1/2 hr



    They are tricky to get on but I worked out an way of doing it without too much trouble let me know if you want me to write up a how to.

    Tried those pussy grips or a version of the same thing. They split about 1/3 on as the GSXS grips are thicker than some. I've emailed Andystrapz about their grip puppies. Might be the same thing?

    Yeah I believe the Pussy Grips are a knock off of the Grip Puppies I've used these vv Johar grips before in several versions on several bikes as I have big hands and carpal tunnel and they are quite good



    Last place I got them was Total MC's although I've also gotten them from Rick Gills before

    Yeah I usually use hair gel foam inside to slide them on and then when they dry it's like they are glued on
