I know I have seen threads on here about aftermarket hand grips but I can't find them. But I need a thicker hand grip that is either like this http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/kuryakyn-iso-grips-for-harley-fly-by-wire?utm_source=product&kwd=&kpid=869480&gclid=CjwKEAjwueytBRCmpOyZ2L-xrG8SJADwH5c6F6QYzqlbguvJ78cipCvzuIlYcVi148yVr7myo3UL1xoCMo7w_wcB

or getting some foam grips. My hands when riding grip the snot out of the grips so that my hands almost go numb. With the bigger one they are fine.

Do any of these larger one just slip or or do I have to do a mod to make them work? Any links of ones that work would be great.

The ones in your link can be had for about $28 on Ebay, you need 7/8", not 1".

Throttle side gets installed with the throttle tube that comes with the grips. Left side just slips on, with glue.

These are the ones I bought, from this seller, they're great, and they come with the Throttle Boss: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291360022310?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT If you search enough you should be able to find some with flat end caps, versus the spikes which tend to scare some people.

Hands have never felt better after a long ride. It's always best not to ride with a death grip though.

or this:

I bought my grips for my 900 here. The were ultra nice and FAT. They did get dirty though so you have to either wear gloves or clean them often. You'll spend a lot of time at this site. It's pretty cool.

You mean like this one 13 threads down?

If your hands are getting numb, I'd say you might be gripping the bars too tight. Try to consciously relax your grip when riding.

I used to love Grab On grips when I first started riding.

Now I love the rubber gel grips. Like these:

For a no hassle easy to install fix...try some Grip Puppies...they are just foam sleeves you just slip over the grips you already have:
http://www.amazon.com/Woodys-M15-GRIPPUPPY-Puppy-Comfort-Grips/dp/B008FD6DXW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1424423860&sr=8-1&keywords=grip+puppy

"Taking the UK and Europe by storm, a simple and effective comfort product that will make a world of difference to your riding experience. NOW AVAILABLE IN THE USA!!! BEWARE OF INFERIOR COPIES! NEW! GRIP PUPPIES bring you added comfort, better throttle control and also reduces fatigue created by vibration. A soft, squeezable grip that simply slips over your standard rubber grip (no need to remove standard grip) and leaves you with a soft, squeezable, tactile grip that will give greater comfort to any bike as well as reducing vibration through the grip. A significant benefit is greater throttle control by nature of a larger grip diamiter (especially on fly by wire throttles!) Rock solid when fitted, a simple and very effective solution:) Grip covers slip over your existing grips. Made of a special high tech material that is U.V. , ozone and oxidation resistant. Foam will not weaken or crack as a result of years of outdoor exposure. Wall thickness is approximately .15 inches (0.38cm). Grip Puppies will fit OVER all standard grip sizes. The standard Grip Puppy will fit standard bars sizes and grips. They are 5" (12.7cm) long and will fit grips that are 1.25 (3.17cm) to 1.45 (3.68cm) inches in diameter. (remember these fit OVER your standard grips, you don't need to remove them) Grip Puppies can be trimmed to length with a craft knife or similar if needed (using appropriate care!) These are great for adding a little extra thickness and comfort to your grips. Will also work with heated grips. Reduce vibration, improve comfort. MILES OF SMILES :)"
