New Grips

What type of grips are the most comfortable and cool for our 900s? Has anyone installed more than one pr. I would like to know what NOT to buy.
And the best place to buy something good.

I purchased the kuryakyn iso grips with stiletto end caps.. work great no vibration. I really like them better than stock. I purchased them through dennis kirk.

Search Amazon, they're fairly inexpensive compared to local dealer prices. I've got a pair of the same grips with stiletto end caps as well. I wouldn't say no vibration now, but they are definitely more comfortable, and if you get a matching throttle boss it's QUITE helpful!

I have these Arlen Ness Grips. Ness Grips

I also have the matching pegs. They are super comfortable and do a great job of isolating vibrations.

Another plus is that I have not met another Vulcan that has them, yet.

Thanks.

The designs coming out of Arlen Ness the last few years have been awesome. I love their style.

I wish they made more stuff for metrics.

Went with Kuryakyn ISO grip in Black, w/ black throttle boss. Really like the look of the all black grip. Plus the feel and control is outstanding.
