Best 10 bucks I ever spent!
Mine were starting to split when I finally removed them. I loved the feel and the size. I liked the vibration damping. Because I had installed them over an existing heated grip installation they insulated my hands from the heated grips too much--it took too long to feel the heat and not enough heat got through. Eventually I removed them to have warmer hands.
Since then I've gone to heated gloves also, so that would be less of an issue. But as someone pointed out doing heated grip wraps over the stock grips and under the grip puppies would take care of it.
On the bike I had them on, I replaced them with tennis racquet wrap. Less of everything that the Grip Puppies: less added thickness to the grips, less vibration damping, and less insulation from the grip warmers. The Grip Puppies are nicer if you don't need the heat. But there are decent alternatives.
Been thinking about doing a tennis racquet grip wrap over the Oxford heated grips on my Versys.
