Here's an inexpensive (er..."cheap") solution using something you probably have laying around unused in a kitchen cabinet or somewhere in the garage.
Ingredients: two neoprene "Koozies", 16" of male/female velcro, the wife's sewing machine (when she's not looking or at home....mine caught me!
and the willingness to say you used a sewing machine!
One day after a ride I noticed a slight numbness in my hand and thought it would be nice to wrap the brand new OEM grips (old ones were worn and replaced by the dealer) with something that would soften the vibration and increase the diameter of the handlebars. I rolled into the garage and....there on my workbench sat two "koozies" completely unused (the fridge isn't too far and the amber beverages never last long enough to get warm)!
I decided to cut the bottom of each koozie off and cut the seam on one side to create a 4.5" long piece. I decided it would be easier to beg forgiveness than to ask ahead of time to use der frau's sewing machine
....read the instructions and read them again 'cause I didn't want to break something. I then cut two lengths of velcro (male and female) for each wrap and began sewing. Ok....I know it isn't "manly," but I was on a roll! I did make a few mistakes (didn't realize there was a reverse button on the machine...missed that in the instruction reading!
) and had to start over. Eventually, after about 20 minutes, I completed the modification of the koozies to something I could easily put on or remove. Below are the pictures of the two pieces with the labels of how to connect them.
A & B = female velcro piece sewn onto the black side (which will be the exposed side)
C & D = male velcro piece sewn onto the colored side (which will wind up being the inside)
Wrap A to C (you need to measure this before sewing) and then D to B.
The end products are shown in the last two pictures.
Final preparation: take wife out to dinner with the money you save after putting up her sewing machine!
