Re: Handle bar grip length and bar ends
OK. I'm going to step in here and note that, while the PG 719 (or the 721 or the 724, for that matter) are all very nice and comfortable, the fact is, for me, they're actually sport-bike grips more suited for 'grab' than 'squoosh.' What I've used, with great success and comfort on my 'Wing and my Cavalcade are the Deluxe Tour grips from Grab-On. (Photo below). These grips are the bomb, and comfortable after long riding days.
My question, though, is that I've not been able to find a definitive answer to the question of what diameter grips actually fit the LT. There are even some posts that opine that either a 7/8" or a 1" is correct. So, since the Grab-Ons come in the following permutations:
7/8" X 6"
7/8" X 6 1/4"
1" X 6"
Which one am I looking at....especially since I'm too cheap to make a $25 mistake. Thanks!
