Grips are such a personal preference type of thing it's hard to recommend something. I personally like the look of the Biltwell Kung Fu grips like the ones here. They are pretty cheap at only $18.

You could always just wrap the bars in electrical tape. That's be super cheap.

I only understand what I don't understand.

x2

Presently, I still have the Stock grips. Personally, I like the Kury Grips, but are cost Prohibited ! (Many differing opinions about Kury Grips).

btw: VN750 Bars are 7/8 ".

I passed on a new set of Kury ISO grips on Ebay yesterday, they went for $26+ shipping, not too bad. I won't pay Kury's price.

There are ISO knock offs for about the same price, either stiletto ends or flat caps, also on Ebay. I think the Throttle Boss will fit right on them too.

I'm gonna wait until she's on the road to buy grips, but the ISO style is what I want.

I have read:

Expensive, Garbage Grips, makes your hands smell of rubber, Nice looking grips, comfortable Grips.

A couple of active forum members are really down on them.

I have only sat on a bike with Kury's installed...I liked them...never rode with Kury Grips.

hope this helps

Thanks, that's pretty much what I've seen on them too. Gonna try a set unless something changes my mind. Probably will try the knock offs unless I see a deal like yesterday. I'm not payin' $65-80 for grips.

Thought those revolver grips looked cool, then add the levers made with the .45 cal shells in holes across the top. Looking to get the wide blade levers. Definitely don't want the ones with the knife edges facing you... hmm, hey Knifemaker, saw some levers for you. lol
