fleabay grips Q
 
Just curious for the sake of clicking one box or the other.
Looking to get the grips below (OM Obsolete)
22mm Left & 24mm Right (Throttle sleeve)

Image on the right calls out 22 & 24mm dimensions .. 20

Image on left calls out 22mm Handlebar - but shows 'channels' or splinds on one grip - leading me to think this is OK for Throttle as the splind type design will stretch 2mm (And its a Motorcycle grip which you'd think would deal withe the sleeve. this Pair is 6.

I recon the left is a Chinese copy of the right Chinese copy :rolleyes2:
Anyone buy from fleabay that might know if these generally fit L & R
or have they been known to get two lefts...
Its 14 in my pocket for the sake of a question

All of them come with one bigger than the other for the throttle tube, don't worry about it, ive bought cheap ones before with no problem.

I find that the asian rubber products tend to crack after a short while...you get what you pay for imo...

The're all Asian now..
That's why all the genuine made in US stuff just got 25% dearer...
Just gets my head when u pay big for what's supposed to be genuine or made 'here'.
And find they're all the same. Just principle.
I don't care where the come from so long as they do the trick. UK seller puts 400% on the price which is convenient if u need 20.00 stuff soonish.

Anybody put thicker grips on ? The Oxford hot grips have become worn but still work fine. Can a sleeve be got to fit over and still get the heat through?

Only difference is delivery time. UK would be a week or so. China anything from 3 weeks to 3 months. Ask me how I know:doh:

OP, they'll be grand - heat them in hot water to soften and stretch them on. I usually buy Renthal grips for a few bob more but they feel nicer.
