thoughts on these grips?

----http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Goldwing-Gold-Wing-GL-1500-1800-CHROME-GRIPS-/330760050506?_trksid=p4340.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D2 22001%26algo%3DSIC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D11%26m eid%3D442917950537855224%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D10 05%26rk%3D2%26 -------i'm looking at these on e-bay and trying to make sense of size of bar diameters for us,....so i think the left (clutch side) is 7/8" and the right (throttle) is 1" for slipping on grips.....that seems to be what i'm seeing on the honda grips that fit ours (?).........anybody have these cheaper grips (kury-copies) ?

Nice looking grips.

I always hated those, ugly and can't even see comfort in using them. BTW you need 7/8" grips. Any grips sold are sold in sets. You measure the bar thickness and that is it. They always make the throttle grip larger for the throttle tube.

Rebel..any GL Handgrip up to 2012 will fit the VN750. all use 7/8" bars.

as long as the grips are not made for Factory heated grips.
