Rizoma Bar Grips and Oberon Bar end mirrors

I'm looknig at upgrading my grips to the Rizoma GR205. Eventualy, going with the Oberon Bar end mirrors.

First question to those who have installed the grips....are they comfortable and worth getting? I have a very nice comfortable set of Kuryakyn ISO grips but cannot install the oberon bar end mirrors with them.

Second and most important......do they install easily ie. Do I have to do any modifications? Do I replace the whole throttle grip by opening he cable end housing and replacing the cable holding think-a-majigs. I'm not interested in f'n up my maching in the process of installing these but would like to make the change.

Thanks for all those who can help?

Worry not, Grasshopper.

The Rizoma GR205 grips are surprisingly comfortable and +400mi days are not a problem with them. Replacing the throttle side grip is easy, just pay attention when you remove the old throttle tube and put everything back the same way. Adjust the slack out of your throttle cables as the last step.

New grips you will have…..

Just to make sure I understand, will I be permanently removing the old throttle sleeve tube thing from the throttle grip or reusing it. My current throttle tube has it's grip glued to it and will not likely be able to separate the grip from the tube.

Yeah, believe it or not I have a black belt in English from Berkeley. They couldn't beat the knucklehead out of me. Ten years of college down the drain (yes, I really went to college for 10 years [forehead slap] ).

wow. I hope you stayed at college for 10 years because of the college chicks. I can't think of any other reason....

The Ducati Sport Classic is like the perfect wife. She's a classic and sporty. Oh, and my wife IS perfect.
Added an MTS1000S to take the wife when the Sport Classic stays at home

Yeah, college girls are awesome. When I finally met the right one I married her and got out of there. This was 14 years ago, though; we didn't have wi-fi, internet or cell phones back then and only nerds played video games at home.

The cool guys still rode motorcycles, though.
