Construction: Injection-molded Krayton synthetic rubber
Fitment: Biltwell grips are available in 1” & 7/8". These grips are made from the same material used in dirt bike and BMX grips: Kraton Rubber. They are softer and more comfortable but also wear quicker. Just like a dirt bike, plan on changing them often, depending on how hard you ride and in what conditions.
Details: Scroll down for Installation Tips. We recommend using WD-40 to install the grips and suggest letting them dry overnight. Adding a ring of safety wire on each end is a standard moto practice and all of our grips have grooves to accommodate this.
Note: Using Biltwell rubber grips on H-Ds will often require that your motorcycle is equipped with an aftermarket throttle tube (our Whiskey throttle tube, for instance). The grips do not have a built in plastic throttle tube, they are meant to slide over a higher-quality aluminum tube.
These grips look great and the price is right, but know that they are quite a bit wider in the center than your typical grip. This extra width is going to increase the distance between your palms and your clutch/brake levers. Combine this extra width with the padding of your gloves in between, and it starts to get real cramped real fast.
Great grips! For the price they definitely can't be beat.
I hope this helps anyone looking into these grips. It seems there's not much info on them. I've put them on my Shadow 750 spirit and after having them on for only a week or so all I can say is I love the way they feel, and for $18, WOW! I had Kurys on my last bike and they are great grips if you got a ton of extra cash to blow. You will not regret buying these Recoils one bit. I will never spend $60-70 on grips again and wish I found these Recoils before. They look good,feel extremely comfortable and yes, even smell good(in a weird ditto paper kinda smell way). If you like the way they look in the pic....Get them!!!
