Mine had 2 bands in the bag. I didn't need them.

I think you only need the bands if you have skinny grips or those chrome "OCC" ones.

Craneguy is right, the bands aren't mandatory. They do serve a few different purposes when used though. Protecting and providing grip for metal grips. It can provide a more uniform surface on some grips with lots of surface molding. On grips with taper or levers that flare out dramatically it can help keep the omni straight.

Nick, I'll throw an extra in for you just in case.

Alright guys - it's 8 am and I alway have been asked about CYBER MONDAY sale 3 times. I was in the shop all 4 days over the holiday weekend and think I might actually be ahead of the order curve for a few weeks SO:

CYBER MONDAY SALE in effect!

30% off all new orders (can not be combined with any other discount)

Thats only $34.99 folks

The idea is to give them as gifts right? (sure) With that in mind I haven't forgotten all of the kind souls who have already ordered. ONLY UNTIL TUESDAY AT MIDNIGHT PST anyone who has already ordered can pm or email me for a code FOR 50% OFF! Please include your order number. That ought to make giving a gift a little easier. You know you have a friend who needs one, give the gift of "no more wrist shaking at stop signs" for Christmas!

Got mine Sat (ordered Wed). Haven't had a chance to use it as my FZ is currently missing its forks and shock. I did test fit it. May have some issues with it staying in the right place on my grips (Rizomas) as the end of the grip where you need to put it is curved. It kept wanting to slide out (toward the barend) instead of staying put, and that's without the vibrations of the bike running. Hopefully it'll work out.

One of my test riders used the red Rizomas. I WAS SHOCKED that the aluminum ISN'T EVEN GLUED to the rubber. It is free floating. He used the band to keep the omni still (worked great) but the aluminum sleeve occasionally rotated slowly but according to him it was still very effective. I tried and tried to "test ride" his new bike but he wouldn't let me... so I had to take his word for it.

I just received mine today and am very impressed.This is a very well thought out part and after test fitting looks like it is going to make the slab miles much more comfortable.
Thanks, and I am sure you will sell tons of these.
