Alternative non-heated 135 mm handgrips?


Recommended Posts

I don't like the stock waffle handgrips .  I've been trying to locate suitable 135mm "regular" style (preferably soft) grips.  I normally use Renthal grips on my race bikes and they are great, however, the longer length 135 mm grips on the T7 are proving difficult to find.  Websites don't list the length.  Has anyone found suitable grips of the proper length?

I'm very happy with the AME grips on my T7, which measure 130mm as currently installed. 






They were easy to remove when I installed grip heating elements, and I liked them so much (soft, grippy, tough and not large in circumference) I just reinstalled them over the heating elements using rubbing alcohol as I do with all my grip installs. I'm sure I could've stretched them an additional 5mm if necessary, but everything works well at their 130mm length on each side.


Edit: Just realized the AME grips may well be 135mm (or more) with their end caps as delivered. My 130mm measurement is obviously with the ends cut off to accommodate bar end hand guard mounts.
