Pics would be appreciated. I ordered a set.
Here is a picture of what couple folks been talking about:
Wow, I did NOT need to know that...
Mods: please don't punt the entire thread to Vendors. There is some useful info in here that doesn't pertain to the ongoing transactions. Please consider moving only the relevant posts to Vendors.
Agree. Please split the thread into two. One for skinny grips and one for beemer buddies. Cross linked...?
I'm sure the original poster had no idea :eek1
I just got a lot dumber spending 5 minutes on that site. I will never look at lists of people's 'equipment' in their signatures the same way again.
Beemer Buddies group buy thread is now here:
Have you found that the grips are also absorbing the vibrations?
Not sure I would notice. I don't find the 800 all that vibey compared to my old F650 Dakar single. It is a little more than my GSXR-750 trackbike but that bike is smooth as butter.
I guess I'd say yes they absorb a little but not a so much that you would look to it as a solution... not that there is a solution if you feel vibration is a problem.
Funny this just came up, I was about to start a thread . . . might still.
I had never thought of my 800GS as a "buzzy" bike, but over the last couple of months it seems it has become more and more buzzy to the point it puts my hands to sleep.
I'm going to try a set of Renthal Gel Rallye grips to see if they help but I wonder if anyone has found any other solution to buzzy grips??
Ya I found a solution....R1200GS
I had the F800ST and it is a buzzy engine. The grip puppies help, but hands still fall asleep after an hour. It was annoying and not the main reason why I switched out to the 1200, but I must say, even without grip puppies, my hands never fall asleep on the 1200.
So I found these today at my Yamaha dealer.
Bought two pairs for $7.95 each. Got two pairs so I could use the thinner one.
Trimmed the ends a bit.
Looks about right.
Undid the handguard end. Stretched them on over the stock ones. Bingo. Problem solved.
Wow, ten pages on grips. This is a fun place.
You've got your settings wrong. At 40 posts per page we're only on page 4.
You want to be impressed. check out an OIL thread.
I replaced mine with the older BMW oem grips, like these:
The foam and o-ring solutions all made the grip too big, these are perfect for me.
Oil threads are special, too. And I also like tire threads .
