New DRZ Owner: Looking to change-out handle grips

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased a 2006 DRZ400SM. I love the bike so far, but the handle grips are so uncomfortable. I just ordered a new throttle body and plan on getting new grips as well. My main question is what is the difference between closed-ended (MX) grips and open-ended grips? Seems like all the grips which I found were for MX bikes. Do I need to buy a open-ended grip to allow for use of my stock handlebar weights? 

 

If I don't need to get open-ended grips, any suggestions on brand of grip to buy? I was looking at simple diamond patterns.

You can cut open the ends of any grips you put on there. I use a small hole saw in a drill. I like a soft grip like the Ourys or Scotts. They wear out quicker but you hand will grip them better with less effort and some times being able to hang on a little tighter is a good thing.
