    Question suggestions for replacement handle bar grips?

    2009 Fzr with stock oem handle bars. Looking for suggestions on replacements grips for my ski. What are you guys using? Thanks for your reply.

    I’m using 140mm odi grips, I put 1” long 7/8” bar stock that I installed on the ends of the bars to make them wider. I also drilled and tapped for a bigger end bolt. So far so good

    that works good for late model skis but my ski has a manual trim on the left side and the left grip has to be larger to fit over the trim sleeve .

    I did the same on my 15 fz, I cut the sleeve off at the line on the trim adjuster. You can still adjust trim and use odi grips. I never adjusted the trim while under power, I thought something was going to break

    that looks good, but I use my trim a lot under power and need to leave the trim sleeve on for leverage .
