Handlebar grips

Good day, fellow riders.

I'm in the market for a pair of new handlebar grips (throttle + fixed) for my VN750 - can anyone recommend a good pair? Most custom grip sets I can find are built for Harleys and Yamahas, which seem to have larger diameter handlebar pipes.

Thanks in advance!

I have the Kuryakyn Iso Grips and they are great. Best grips I ever tried!

I like the Kuryakyn Iso Grips for the goldwing. They are a little longer than the standard Iso grips which gives your hand more room and I think they fit/look a little better.

Search for goldwing to find out what you have to do to install aftermarket grips.

So Goldwing has same diameter handlebars as VN750?

Thanks for all the suggestions!

From Dianna:
Kuryakyn pn 6180 are the ones for the Goldwings that we use on our bikes. Same grip, just a little bit longer to give more hand room

Just an aside question, but when one gets new grips (Kury ISOs or OEMs (that would be me)), what recommendations do folks have for getting the old ones off??

Utility knife!

I just slit mine down the middle ... makes them much easier to take off.
