If you're going for "flash" then why not just get some chrome grips, then spray 'em with PAM so they're extra shiny? That way you get maximum "flash" and you get the same amount of actual GRIP as the D3s!


...and I personally think you've only had them on for a month or two, and at this point even if you DIDN'T like them you've put up such a stink defending them that you'll probably never publicly admit that they suck (even after you find out that they suck first hand).

Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: I wanna grab em...levers and grips

D3's are really bad grips. Why get a grip that isn't grippy, and comfortable? D3's don't do the job they are made to do well. They look good only. And that is subjective. I think that rentals look great, since they work well.

I need a new sig, Can someone make me one please?

If I end up not liking them il make a whole thread stating I changed my mind. You keep saying they aren't grippy yet my hands have not slipped once.

Maybe from a track stand point they aren't good but for the street riding they do perfectly fine

They were very very grippy when I had them.

That, and they look pretty snazzy, were the only good things about them though, unfortunately.

Made riding almost unbearable. Hands kept going numb from the vibration.

Re: I wanna grab em...levers and grips

so again... I've only ever ridden stock levers so I would logically think I would be more comfortable/use to normal length levers. Are shorties that much of a difference?

Not really.

In fact - Short levers (more specifically, folding levers that say Shermoto on them), are MUCH better. In every aspect, really. And anyone who says other wise, or has a different opinion, or even thinks it's personal preference, in face, have big retard hands.
