Default 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
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.

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

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.
