    Larger handgrips??

    Does anyone knwo of a good source for larger handgrips? The grips on my R1100RT are too small and cramp my hands.

    Thanks,

    I forgot to mention they carry a product called Grip Puppies that will install over your existing grips....

    Larger Handgrips

    If you have heated grips then both bars are throttle diameter size.

    Thumbs up

    Another slip over solution are Jabco Grip Covers. I use these on my R11RT.

    You might seriously consider the Hunter Flat Bars--oval shaped bar ends that replace your current bar ends, throttle, and grips. Both heated and unheated are available.

    I have not tried these myself, but Brian Halton (owner/editor City Bike magazine) swears by them.

    info hunterflatbars.com or 415 786-6312

    I've got probably 10k miles on a pair of Sunlines. They've ben comfortable for me - the stock grips were not. I also felt they were too narrow.
