The small diameter of the stock grips tend to tire my hands compared to my other bikes. Does anyone know where I can find some sleeves that would slip over the stock grips to increase the diameter? I used to have a company bookmarked that sold these but can no longer find or remember the name.

For quite a few years now I've put these on every motorcycle I've owned that uses 7/8 inch bars.

They have a closed end but you just carefully trim off the end with a razor. Good thing is, you don't need glue. You just warm the grips up in the sun, put some dishsoap/water inside the grip and on the bars and slide them on. Let them dry overnight and the grips won't move. They are really tough and give you good grip even when wet.

I installed these grips today and they are great. Thank you for the tip Dennis.
