Just as an fyi, you don't remove anything to install grip puppies either. They just slide on.

I have these installed on my Trophy. I have to admit that, while they do wonders to ease the pain in my hands from trying to hold on to such a small handle, they don't do as much as I had hoped in the realm of vibration isolation. Either way they are great, inexpensive, and relatively easy to install.

Am I right in saying that these are basically bits of foam?

Back in the eighties one of my bikes came with foam grips of some sort, I just remember them getting soaked when it rained and the feeling of gripping them, yuk.
Is this the case with these??

Earthman, I fitted these as the original seemed to be disintegrating, with my hand sticking to them, It was on this forum that someone said to fit them, perhaps Coconut  :084:...anyway, apart from them making the bar slightly thicker, yes, they are foam, but they do not hold water.

Thanks, I'm amazed, your bike lives outside too doesn't it, I would have thought that the first time you grip the bars, the rain water would be squeezed out.

Earthman, yes, it is out doors, but it is covered over though, there is a name for the type of foam, but I can't think of it  :027:
