    What grips for BIG hands????

    I have big hands and I switched to those grips with the extended tab on them for putting the heel of your hand when cruising.
    problem is they keep creeping around the throttle assembly so i have to keep bending them back into position.
    I even tried grip cement.
    No good.

    Whats the desirable grip for guys with big hands?
    It's a /7

    Grips for big hands

    No
    That won't help.
    I don't have the original grips and the little speed tab isn't what I reall want.

    ANYONE HAVE A PAIR OF STOCK /7 GRIPS I CAN GET CHEAP?

    A guy I know told me he solved his big hands problem by finding an O-Ring that is slightly smaller than the grip and he added as many O-Rings as it took to fill the entire grip. This effectively increased the diameter of the grip and since he used a soft rubber O-Ring, there was less tendency for his glove to slip.

    Grip Puppies

    Check out "Grip Puppies". They are cheap, and they worked for me (6'6") on the K13GT with the pencil-thin grips.
    Also, consider Throttlemeister to give your right hand a break.
