New Grips Needed

I need to replace my grips. Most of the 1 inch one that come with a sleeve like


say they fit Harleys, but will they fit my 1800R ? Will any 1" grip with push pull sleeve work ?

I’m a big fan of Big Bike Comfort grips...but I dont know if they make them anymore....VTX stuff is getting hard to come by....good luck
I havent found them listed for VTx..but have found them listed for 1” bars...in the past...

The comfort grips came with a left and throttle side...the throttle side just slid over the OEM sleeve...

No, Harley grips will not work, the cable connections are different. I had Harley grips on my VTX but I had to have Barnett make them with Honda barrels on the engine end and HD barrels on the grip end

Try these www.coolsac.com. The stock throttle sleeve is re-used. I had my first set for eight years before needing replaced. A bit pricey but very comfy on the hands

I replaced my Kury grips last weekend, with Kury grips. First pair lasted 16 years.

Hey Mike, I have put the Kury Kinetics grips on both bikes, 1300 and 1800. They have always worked very well. Simple and easy to install.
