Well my stock grips ripped & i needed a replacement.

I ordered a cheap set from ebay $10:

$10 Non-Slip Orange Aluminum Grip

I ordered these because i liked the simple grip pattern, but also didnt mind the orange design at the end... However I completely overlooked that there was a diamond gem at the end of them :sing

So to make sure i could tighten this down here's what i did:

The end cap is held on by a hex bolt, simply unscrew, pop the end cap off.
Using a razer knife i cut a hole wide enough to fit my stock bar end on.
Then simply retightend back on.

Also if one wanted to keep the end cap, your going to have to use a 1/4" drill bit. Start with a pilot and the gem will crack. Then you can use the pilot to finish drilling through the end cap, then follow up with the 1/4". I advise only to drill 1/2 way through with the 1/4" so that you dont mess up the threads in the 2nd half. I experimented with this but didnt like the way the stock bolt poked through. Might look alot better if i get a longer bolt and make it a set screw so it fits inside the end cap

Anyways on to the picture:

The gem would've complimented those sweet ass blade levers....
Wow didnt think its take that long before a comment like that would appear :sing (they came with the bike so not my first choice :toocool:)
I'm not the biggest fan of the concept, but i actually dont mind the feel.
I havent found what i want to replace them with yet.

I love the finger indents thats for sure.
So i'll gladly take some opinions or links to anything of that sort
