handelbar grip advice

Hi chaps - small thing i know but i need to change my grips , there are millios it seems to chose from . so im coming to you guys for advice if you can .

thanks :smirk:

Can't go wrong with Pro Taper Pillow Tops. Softest grips out there, and some claim they help prevent arm-pump.

I run the new tag ones with the spikes and love them. The pro taper pillow tops are great my son likes those. we ran renthal tapered for 3 years before that

+1..on the Pro Taper....pillow tops...:smirk:

Pillow Tops are the best bar none! Was running the spider grips before but they get really tackie and wear out fast.

Pillow Tops wear out very fast. Oh, and that's all I ever install on any of our 6 bikes - so comfy.

I have tried everything over last 30 years and really like the renthal kevlars. I have had my current set on about 20 hours of hard riding with no sign of wear and still tacky. The pillow tops and the tag spiky ones are nice as well, but wear quickly. Best bang for buck is Scott Hurricanes for like $7.

Renthal Kevlar.

I guess thats the cool thing about grips....they only cost $8.00 to $15.00 for a set of grips....easy to change....I have tried several different styles over the years....Worst case if you dont like them..cut them off and get another set......:smirk:

Hi and thanks chaps - i got some pillow tops this week they look and feel prity good ,so thanks for the advise .:thumbsup:

      As close to new as I'd imagine you'd get! I bought the bike brand new, I'm older and have taken extremely good care of this bike. Very little use and is COMPLETELY stock - everything is original. 
      Comes with the title, original book and map couplers for the fuel injection.
      $4700 - cash

      Time for a top end on my bike, just wondering if there are any alternative Valve springs i can use. I have PC cams and $400 for just the springs and retainers is alil costly at the moment.
      This has been fun in other sections of TT, so I'll start the thread here and see if we can keep it going.
      Let us know what kind of mods, fixes, changes, etc.., you performed today, or just general fun you had with, your KX250F.
      I'll start with.. I installed a correct for my weight Race Tech shock spring, along with a Pivot Works shock spring thrust bearing. Also cleaned out all the nasty yellow plastic/wax crap that passes for grease in the lower shock bearing, and re-lubed it with Bel Ray waterproof.
