I was looking for some as well. Something I learned about Honda is it appears the stock grips are longer than others. I had some gel ProGrip grips I had on my POPO and loved and was going to slap them on my Foreman but they are about 1/2-3/8 too short.

When I went to Champions to Buy my oil, filter and such, the guy be hind the counter said "huhh, wow" and had no other advice for me. What a shock. Next time I head south I'll swing by House of power and see if those gifted ones can help out.

I hate to buy that kind of thing without actually holding it. Its like buying boots from a catalog, you don't know if they are comfortable until they get to your house. Then its a pain in the neck to return them.

Nice topic

The only thing I do not like about my foreman is the grips. With no gloves they hurt my hands. Might just be me I dont know but I do not like them at all.

If anyone find some the right size and that work good let me know b/c I ride with gloves on just to save my hands.

Come summertime when the air is not as chilly gloves are going to sucks.

I have heard that the Highlifter Gel grips are nice, people say they are real comfortable. Check them out on Highlifters web site.

Anyone had any luck with the grips being sold on eBay, there are a ton of them, and they are mega cheap.

Went to Wal Mart last night...for 3 bucks, I got some Bell Mountain Bike grips, they fit right on, and are a huge improvment over my worn out stock grips, we will see how they hold up. Thanks for the tip!! (Trugrit, got your sugar too )

Do the grips fit well. It seemed to me most o fthe grips I saw at the Honda shop were too short (by 1/2-3/8"). Is there any more space between the end of the grip and throttle. That is my area of concern.

Pics.

a little more space...all you gotta do is loosen the throttle up, and slide it over a tad...easy fix.

Well I went to **** (WalMart) yesterday, picked up some BMX grips. They fit and feel good. I had to trim the grip around the thumb throttle, other than that no issues.

Well they said just wet the inside of the grip w/ soap and water, then slide it on. That doesn't seem very sturdy to me so I put some Renthal grip glue I had on them, now they don't move at all. I'm just waiting for the chance to test them on a long ride.
