boyesen shokout grip system

the old Flex Grip'll be surprised at the difference,in a good way! the only drawback is when it comes time for new grips,you'll have to purchase two sets because of the throttle tube diameter of the Flex Grip.It will help with a nagging wrist injury.Good luck.


Is there a benefit without a wrist injury? Thinking about getting them myself.

I love it, it cuts back on arm pump in the spring. I first got one after a wrist injury, now I am in love with it.

Will they work with any brand grips, or do they have to be refitted with the Scott's?

(and if I'm understanding, they require throttle grips on both sides, correct?)

Yes,any grips will work,but 2 sets because of the diameter.Small price to pay for the benefits IMO.

How exactly do they work?

It is like a throttle tube with a housing on the end. Inside the housing are little rubber dampers that cusion the movement of the grip. You can adjust how stiff it is with different dampers. You can make it stiff one way and soft the other. At the stiffest setting the grip doesn't really move at all unless you hit hard off of a jump. I like mine set up soft so it moves quite a bit when heading through whoops, easier on your hands that way.

i'm gonna order some next weekso i'll give you all a report

Will they work with Bark Busters?

You can cut the end just like the throttle for use with the bark busters. Also the guys at spider grips said they will sell two throttle grips for the same price. Pretty good grips too, or you can order the scotts from Boyesen.

I'll admit that I'm a little confused by the Boyesen page that's linked...from the pic of the product, it appears that this 'special' grip sleeve is only for the clutch side, and the throttle side is the regular I missing something?

It is only for the clutch side since the throttle side already twists. The twisting motion is what makes it easier on your hands.

The twisting motion is what makes it easier on your hands.

I thought it was the cushioning effect that relieved the vibration. I'm not sure both grips being able to twist would feel particularly safe.

Really. I had no idea that they were rotational...glad you posted that KJ, that sheds a whole new light on it.

I agree that the idea of the clutch side twisting seems unsafe, but it does not twist enough for you to notice while riding. I notice it most on rough sand tracks it just feels like my left wrist is not being hammered as hard with it.

Sometimes I don't feel like reglueing my clutch side grip and just ride with it spinning. Doesn't really bother me.

best thing money can buy

the Flex Grip doesn't rotate,it moves maybe a couple of MM's at most fore and aft giving just enough to alleviate wrist will not notice the movement while riding but will notice the benefits after a days riding.Do not worry about the movement....

      Today I decided to clean the carburator of my crf250r 2005. It was my second time doing it. When I opened up the top of the carburator to remove the slide, I didn't remove the throttle shaft screw and I still slid the slide out, but the control arm is now stuck. This video explain what I should have done at about 1:00. The only difference is I didn't remove the throttle shaft screw and now the control arm is sutck up and I can't slide it back down with the slide. I was still able to remove the slide. Anyone knows how to fix this? I can't acces the throttle shaft screw anymore since the control arm is stuck up.

      Hey guys ive seen alot of stabilizer questions lately and since we currently own 3 different stabilizers, I figured I would try and help out TT a little with a comparison between the three...
      Stabilizers in test:
      >GPR V1 mounted on top of the bars with a Fastway adjustable mount system & RG3 Gen 2 (Top and Bottom) Triple Clamps with pro tapers
      >Scotts mounted on top of the bars with a scotts upper triple clamp with Renthal twinwalls (crossbar removed)
      >WER mounted to front fender (no other option)
      The GPR is mounted to a 2002 Honda CR250R
      The Scotts is mounted to a 2002 Yamaha YZ250
      The WER is mounted to a 1999 KX250
      All bikes are set up and used for off-road only
      All stabilizers are in correct working order
      On the Fly Adjustments---------8/10
      >Easiest to adjust on the fly
      >Awesome Anodized Colors
      >Easy 2 bolt mounting
      >You can feel it working
      >Works as advertised
      >Dampens back to the center
      >Not as adjustable as the SCOTTS, it has high speed and low speed dampening on one circuit
      >You can feel it working, in the tight woods I feel like I am fighting it.
      >Dampens back to the center

      On the Fly Adjustments---------7/10
      >Cool gold color
      >Very adjustable, high speed on one knob and low speed on another
      >Can be adjusted so that you are never fighting it
      >Easy to mount
      >You can’t feel it working until you need it.
      >Can fit under many stock cross bars when mounted backwards
      >Not so easy to adjust on the fly, may be different wit large knob accessory
      >A bit pricier than GPR yet still very reasonable.
      (The YZ's a little dirty after yesterdays ride:busted:)

      On the Fly Adjustments---------4/10
      >Nearly impossible to detect that its working
      >Mounts out of the way, on the front fender
      >Decent look
      >Easy to bleed and not as many moving parts or seals as SCOTTS or GPR
      >Excellent price
      >Really not sure how much it does
      >Nearly impossible to adjust on the fly, (I tried and almost crashed)
      >Not very easy to mount
      >Have to cut hole in front number plate

      >Scotts can be mounted under bars as a sub mount kit for saftey
      >Scotts can be mounted on the front fender, this is called a low mount kit, (like the WER)
      >Scotts can be mounted backwards to fit under stock crossbars
      >GPR sells a V2 Kit which mounts under the bars and is part of the bar mounts, so it can not be mounted on top of the bars.
      >GPR also offers a V3 which you can adjust on the handle bars with a twist adjuster.
      >WER only mounts on the fender, no other option
      These are the only stabilizers that I had the resources to test, all of the stabilizers worked well although the GPR and SCOTTS were the best. I prefer the SCOTTS just slightly over the GPR. This is only my opnion, I have friends who swear by the GPR and others who wont ride without a SCOTTS.
      I will be going to the sand with these bikes within the next couple of weeks and will post some info of how they perform there too.
      Hope This Helps Someone!!!
