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.

Don't have that problem. Possibly the bar ends I have helping with that?

They suck bro. The metal part spins, they are a PIA to get on. The ends of em suck. The rubber is so soft it doesn't last long enough. I loved the look tho!!! If you ball out, rizoma has similar looking ones that last forever!

Personally I ride clip ons, no bar weights, and renthal race grips. The pro-grips I've been selling a lot of and using on the 02 are really really awesome too!

...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).



I can save it! :

It's preference. Two finger braking and clutching is what some do. Others liek 4 fingers on the brake lever to reduce fatigue and also really get amazing feel. Shit, I got 3/4 lengths that are an even nicer compromise! I run shermoto clutch and brembo brake (full length). 3/4 length with the round finish and epic angle may be my next move tho. The comfort of the brembo is amazing and I think the 3/4 size is gonna be the compromise i want.

I truly love how the shermoto folds though and settles into my hand so well, no matter where I am on the bike!!

lol, I have big retarded hands and I hate stock levers.. I rock two finger non folding shorty's much like Shermotos.
Like many have said its all personal preference. I for that fact don't like pulling on a banana shaped levers.

The stock shape is the pits. If they just shaped em better it would be great. The very second you use something else, the stock ones feel so shitty in comparison. Terrible Ergos. Not to mention you gotta tape the fcuking adjustor on it, cause it'll ht the stay on a race bike and adjust itself as you ride. That's always cool too.

I seem to be the only one who has had a good experience with d3s. Mine slid right on with the hairspray

Also I think psr has a similar grip to the d3s
