Hi All,

My wife has a 2020 Scout Bobber which currently has just the stock handgrips on it. She finds on longer rides she gets a sore throttle hand and wrist. She is 5'2", quite petite, with pretty small hands. As a first step, I've ordered her a cramp buster to see if she likes it and it helps. We are also considering either the Brakeaway throttle lock or going all out and getting the McCruise Cruse control module.

However, she would also like some nicer, more comfortable grips, probably heated ones. I've heard of Avon and Kuryakyn grips but my Google Fu is not good enough to find model types which state they will fit the Bobber.

Recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Yea, I think the Atlas would be perfect but the missus doesn't like the "look" of it. 🤷‍♀️

I have the OEM oversized grips. My wife made a cheap fix - wrap some tennis racket handle wraps (gel tape). Very comfy for like 9 bucks.

The Avon’s, any of them are very nice and high quality.

You might just pony up for the OEM heated grips. They look much wider than stock.

Here it is on my bobber, stock grips. What I like is there is no excess bulky hardware to get in the way of things. Also pictured is the Throttle Boss palm assist. Don’t think of it as a cruise control. Using friction between the grip and the ignition control housing it grips the throttle in place. A simple press of the X disengages the friction pads.

The OEM heated grips are definitely in the mix too. (y)

I have a set of the Indian oem heated grips - they were a freebee when I bought the bike - and I'm not very impressed with the function against the price. Yes, they are slightly larger and they do produce heat but they are very expensive.
My brother and I have fitted the Koso Apollo (Technoglobe in the EU) heated grips on several bikes and they are better. They have a bigger range of heat settings and a discrete control button at half the price! Seek them out. Others on this forum have fitted them too.

If you go to kuryakyn.com there's a menu to shop by bike on the front page. I don't have any recommendations but you can see what they have available for the bike.
My wife has a set of Kuryakyn grips on her Scout. I thought they'd be too fat for her, but loves them. Anything is better than the stock grips!

I have an Atlas Throttle Lock I would sell if you are interested. I ended up going w/ the electronic cruise control system.

Think of it as an RPM control, not speed. Coming up on traffic in the draft, speed will increase, inclines or headwinds it will decrease. I find it great for giving your wrist a time out from holding the throttle.

That’s what I gathered from a few YouTube’s today, thank you. Sorry PKFFW, really dont mean to be stepping on your thread.

No problem Rommel (y) And thanks for all the replies everyone. Wifey likes to the look of the Koso heated grips and will probably end up with the cruise control one day.
