Vaquero Hand Grips

I have a '16 Vaquero and want to replace grips - any recommendations and what size of grips did you put on 7/8" or 1"?

1” I don’t think 7/8” will fit or it will be really tight.

Look up Kuryakyn part numbers and you'll find that the Vaq takes the same grips as the VN900. So it's1".

+1 The K's are a good choice but I see you are in NM so high hot sun most every day. The K's have a good amount of chrome that can get very hot in high sun conditions. I have had good luck with Avon Airs, less metal(chrome or blacked out) better positive gripping surface JMO.
