    I bought all three together, I like the way the fork wraps look as well.

    Wow, all the discussions about performance suspension and you just showed a picture of the exact opposite! How does the bobber seat take the excess shock? I am guessing the sprung seats I have seen from Mothers(?) would work well too, but that set up would not work for a passenger, huh?

    These are the grips I got on my motorcycles.
    Black ones are Avon 3 ring with LED bar end light on my Scout. Brown one is a old school style with tennis leather grip and LED bar end light on my Kawasaki cafe racer

    fitted Scout oversize grips, tried them today ... very comfy, a huge improvement over the stock grips, which I found too narrow..

    was going to fit heated grips, got sidetracked with these, they come with integrated throttle tube which was a big plus for me.

    Hi guys has anybody changed to these grips?
    Keis Heated Grip Accessories | Keis Apparel

    They are 7/8 in diameter though i have doubts that they will fit over the throttle tube?
    Clutch side would be fine as its just the 7/8 handlebar end though on the throttle side theres the handlebar plus the throttle tube... which im guessing pushes the diameter up a little?

    Any thoughts?
    Cheers

    it would be normal for 7/8" grips to be 7/8" clutch side and wider than that throttle side.

    I changed to the Indian oversize grips. Stock throttle side came out with the tube when the 4x screws were removed ... remember its orientation, it needs to go back on aligned the same way. I had to cut the clutch side off. When you've removed the throttle side you should be able to cut the grip off and refit the heated grip. It may need trimming down to get the heated grip on the tube, don't know ... haven't done that bit (my throttle side grip came on a throttle tube). When you've got the heated grip on the tube it should fit back in the assembly and then you fasten the 4x screws.

    ps. have you thought of Oxford heated grips, they now come with a controller that turns the heat off when you stop the engine, so you can wire them direct to the battery ... they come with an inline fuse and battery connection. I have them on my Bonneville and the system works!

    Thanks buddy!
    Ill ask the manufacturer if the throttle side has a bigger diameter.
    Yeah i saw the Oxfords but i dont like the large control unit.
    Integrated control in the grips look a lot better imo and worth the extra money i think
