looking for some used stock grips for sale

I just changed my handle bars out and now I'm looking for a fresh pair (or at least a clutch side) stock grips. the old one have some road rash on it.
so if any one here has any laying around that they don't want, let me know.
thanks,
ruger.

Just curious, why would you want OEM rubber grips when there are some really nice replacement grips out there. I put ISO Grips on, bought the ones that fit a Gold Wing since they are longer and allow me to use the Throttle Boss and still get my entire fist on the grip; these grips are really nice. The Mrs. liked them so much I put a set on her Sportster.

cliff are those ISO grips as expensive as the Kurys, which I belive are~$75.

The ISO grips are Kuryakan, I got mine from Powersports.com for $59.00. Got the Mrs. from the same place for $69 with the Throttle Boss.

If you buy them, I only had to glue the left side (used super glue gel); the right fits very tight on the throttle sleeve and does NOT need glue!

well, first, I really like the stock grips. for me they're a very good size around. I'm not sure about after market grips, lots of people seem to really like them.
not sure if I would like the way they look and feel on the bike. so I'm going with what I know right now. who knows, maybe down the road I'll go with after market grips. I do like the looks of kuryakyn flame grips.

also I believe I can replace the old stock girps with a nicer pair of used stock grips for less $ than new or even a used pair of after market grips. so if I can't find any stock grips in good shape, I'll just have to spend the extra $ and go with the after market grips.

You can have the set I took off my bike, just PM your address and I'll get them out to you - gratis! They are in pretty good shape, only about 8,000 miles on them; off a '93.
