Re: kryakan grips

Well for starters, it helps to spell it correctly!

Mr. David Shealey the myth would be your Kuryakyn specialist...Well atleast back in '02

Re: kryakan grips

Swapped my grips out last year! I really enjoy the look and the performance of the Kuryakyn grips. The heat up as well as the rubber ones and my hands don't cramp up like they used too with the old grips.

A Great and Simple Mod!

Re: kryakan grips

So Rob,

Kuryakyn grips: What sizes did you use?

a.) 2 right (large bore) grips
b.) 2 left (small bore) grips
c.) a normal set of grips 1 lrg and one small

I would like to change grips but I'm interested in which ones you used. It seems like a normal set and minor mods would be the way to go.

Thanks,

Loren

Re: kryakan grips

Here is a link to my blog-Kickin' Tires and Tellin' Lies Blog and here..

I combined DShealy's posts with SilverBuffalo's. It includes all of the part numbers you will need. I ordered them directly from Kuryaken. They came tow days later. It took all of 20 minutes to do the actual install. If I remember right, I ordered the universal kits - 6240.

Be sure to pick up several o-rings to fill in the space.

Good luck!
