Time for new grips

What grips do you guys recommend, I am looking for good vibration suppression, found these but open to suggestions for anything better.

Waffled grips like the link you posted make my hands hurt. I’m partial to a renthal diamond texture myself.

Yeppers, i have those Pro Grip 719 Gel grips, on both of my gen.1, FZ1's.

They were already on the bike i picked up from Pat, but they were black n' blue. Off they went, and put on a all black, pair.

Renthal Soft Compound Half Waffle MX Grip for me. Like the small diameter soft grip. They never last long but like the feel.

I found the best vibration suppressor was replacing the stock flat bars with the Rizoma conical bars (the bend in the rise suppresses a lot of vibes).

I also like Oury grips for vibe suppression, but currently run Rizoma grips.

I have Renthal kevlars on my bikes, probably because I kinda like how ugly they are...

There are Grip Puppies to consider too. I've had them on the FJ-09 for awhile and they are comfy.

I use Grippy Grips from Driven Racing. They do what they sound like they do. And I like a relatively thin grip and smaller diameter.

I also like the Grip Puppies.
But you may want to consider sync-ing your carbs if you have more than a little vibration.

ProGrip 719 looks like it might be the last grips I bought before some ebay cheapies I liked.
Not sure what grips I had on 2003.
My 2002 came with heated grips, and I may be spoiled.
Worth considering.
