I brought home my 2014 Versys 650 Saturday and looking to get my first farkle. I am not too crazy about the small diameter grips on the bike so I'm looking at 2 options, both of which leaves the oem grip in place. Grip puppies or grip buddies, has anyone tried one or preferably both of these grips? If so your thoughts would be most appreciated.

I put Grip puppies on mine, they aided in the diminishing slightly the experience of vibes on the bars, and also increased the diameter enough to make my hands more comftorable and less likely to cramp or ache. win win in my book.

I got Grab On Grips and I'm quite happy with them. They are longer than the actual grips, so they fit as shown in here:


However, I think you can cut them easily to get them shorter...

Thanks for the replies, I really don't think I will go with the grip heaters at this point, maybe some day but I don't ride a lot when it gets cold. My old bones don't like the cold too much anymore.
I went ahead and ordered the grip buddies. I read a lot of reviews on both the buddies and the puppies and thought I would give the buddies a try. Not sure if I will like the seam in them but time will tell.
