Hands down the factory grips are the best on the bike. Preferences will vary for style, but nothing is as comfortable and grips like the stock rubber ones. I paid more for new oem stock grips than i ever have for any aftermarket ones. The problem usually is most people just don’t ride their bikes. They may weekend warrior, or a couple times a month, but they don’t use their bike every day or for long periods at a time. When you just ride “sometimes” you can be more into how AwEsOMe they look. Persons like myself and others that i know who ride every time the sun comes up, all day, unanimously agree the stock grips are the best by a LONG SHOT. This is the opinion of who i know, your mileage may vary.
I’ve never heard, not once, the stock grips are uncomfortable, slippery, or bad in any way. So even if they don’t bling bling and twinkle in your eye, for the purpose of being handle grips they are fantastic and i can ride 8 hours with no hand fatigue....... 7.5 hours long than the next closest thing i can do before hand fatigue.
