A small experiment

I say experiment because I have known of these items for years and at last decided to try them. They are Grip Puppies. These things fit over the standard grips in a bike and do a number of things, they make the grips thicker and more comfortable and they add padding so that vibrations are damped when wearing thin summer gloves.

I bought them from ebay LINK, and they were here within a few days. They take 10 minutes to fit over the existing grips with a little soap and water and then are left to dry.

I went out for a ride with them fitted and was instantly impressed with the feel of them.

My wife likes them too so another set will be ordered for her ST2.

    I have them on the 848 and love them. The ST3 has heated grips so I can’t fit puppies on there. Have a look at the KEIS grips as they combine the heated grips and a more comfortable profile and they were what made me try the Grip Puppies in the first place 🙂

      Great information Tim, thanks. I understand that you can fit the grip puppies over heated grips as a UK based friend with a Multistrada visited a week ago with such a set up, he told me that they took a little longer to heat but did work.
      Jude has no heated grips on the ST2 as the electrics would not cope with them. If I go for them on the Supersport then I would probably want the factory ones as they integrate with the switchgear and the instruments. Those KEIS grips do look good though.

    Fitted a set on my 2013 Multistrada. Was a little concerned as the bike has the OE heated grips (such a luxury!) but they actually improved matters – previously the grips got too hot on the highest setting, now I can use the full range.
