ISO Grips 6180 for $40.00

Found a brand new set of Goldwing 6180 Kuryakan ISO GRIPS that fit our bikes very nicely, I have a set, $40.00 on ebay.

These grips fit 7/8" handlebars and give you about an inch more room than the stock grips.

This is a good deal, I paid over $15.00 MORE for mine a couple months ago. That would make what I paid $55.00, I'll do the math for you.

You have to read a little better KM, I said, "I paid over $15.00 for mine", which is more than $15.00 not $15.00. So, to correct my obvious error, I meant to say "I paid over $15.00 more than this for mine"

So, since I paid more than $15.00 I can't tell you where you to get them for $15.00...

I love playing word games....

I guess I need to learn to read better too KM, I read it the way you did. I think there should have been a more in there, and the word games continue.
Just picking

What do you mean and inch more? also how do you get the old ones off and put these on?

They do look nice but do they do anything other than looks?

there designed to fit a goldwing, thats why there an extra inch long.
i think they are very comfortable, they limit vibrations. they are isometric which means they are oval instead of round. this offers better comfort on the palm and hand. (in my opinion) oh ya and they look cool. there are several write-ups on installation in the forum.

nope....isometric:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isometric

Actualy they are called "Iso" grips because they are supposed to "isolate" your hands from vibration, Isometric is something completely different.

And they are not oval, they are round. Just that do to raised rubber sections there are breaks in between that area which are a bit smaller diameter...so the profile is not a perfect circle.

A good set of gel grips with a set of grip puppies:

Will do alot better job of "isolating" your hands from vibration.

Most get the Kury "iso" grips for looks, and to some they do feel better than the stock grips. To me they are too thick, and the metal just seems to make my hands feel cold in low temps., and they are not "tacky" enough for me...(as in sticky, not chintzy looking)

But eveyone has different tastes in this area. I'd think one should try them out on someone elses bike before blowing the money on them, even if they are a good deal.........( even at 15 dollars.....lol)
