Handlegrips and luggage racks

I'm having a hell of a time finding 7/8 handlegrips with a dual throttle tube. Honda sells the tube for almost 20 freaking bucks, then I gotta buy the handlegrips. Anyone got a recommendation for grips in the $20-$35 range with the right tube in it?

Luggage racks..... anything fit with light modification other than the stock option? I can't find one.... especially not reasonably. $50 is about my budget or somewhere in there. I don't need one, I want one so I'm being cheap.... plus I have more than one Vulcan to feed.

These are nice grips, same as the $80 Kury ISO. Mine came in a Kury package, but I paid $22/ebay. Really comfy and the throttle boss is handy on longer trips.

Can see them on my bike in the gas tank thread. Have the spike ends instead of caps.

Had a set of 1" Kury ISO grips, new in the package, when I got my 7/8" set off ebay. Quality-wise, you couldn't tell them apart.

Huge improvement over the thin waffle rubber grips I took off. I like the larger diameter with this design and how much better the airflow is on my hands.

Think they are chromed aluminum.
