I used to have them on my "old" M50, and have bought a set for the new bike as well.

Here is where i bought mine

Hmm .. I think they are the Chinese grips, not Magnum, [unless they are the same thing with a huge price difference]
however, I know a guy with those, and he seems quite happy with them.

I have bought at least 10 sets, for myself and friend. Everybody has been very pleased with the grips, i have trie to compare them with "originals" i cant spot any difference. I guess they are all made in the same place Wink

At that price with a recommendation, it would be worth a punt.

I bought some today too! Does it mean the bar end weights are no longer used?

The bar end weights help stop vibration and no to bikes are alike when it comes to that. There are lots of ways to stop the vibration that cost basically nothing so the styling of grip wanted should never stop anyone from buying the ones they want, especially at that price.
The type you have bought are basically a really cheap alternative to what I have, dam it I wish I had seen them before buying mine
The only thing your hand actually has contact with is the rubber so you have a vibration / shock absorber built in to them so you should have no issue, I haven't.
If you do get a bit of vibration, as I already said there are lots of little tricks you can get up to to help eradicate this such as (sounds crazy but it works) squirting some silicon down your bars or putting a small amount of play sand in to the bars or if you don't like those ideas there are bar snakes that can be bought but why spend cash when you can solve the issue for free.

Looks like a better bargain the more you look at it but out of quriosity why did you stipulate play sand rather than any other type, is it finer or something like that?

Oh frigg me crash, of all the questions you could have asked, you asked the one I haven't got an answer for. lol!

I think it stays granular better than other types and has a lower salt count but I am only guessing to be honest. It is simply the one that I have known people use but I have never really known why. It may make no difference which type but I said it because I had stored play sand in the old grey matter at some stage. I filled my scrambler bars to help reduce vibration with it and from experience I can say it really does work.

Can we open a "sand in bars" thread and do some comparative testing? ;-)

Brian the best tip I can give you is when you are taking the bar end wieghts out,just loosen them,do not undo them all the way,gently does it slacken off and try and pull them,they will come off.When they are off you will see that they are still in tact and not floating around in your bars.To get you old grips off you could try something like a hacksaw blade and try sliding it between the grip and bar and turning it as you push so it releases the glue,this will then let up pull the old grips off.

Hand grip on the left, twist grip on the right. all you do with cables is just put the nipples in the twist grip, so easy you will be surprised,

I think I saw a vid that uses wd40 squirted into the old grips to get
them off easily. Make sure it's all dried off after, of course.

Arrived today, very nice indeed. It's up B&Q tomorrow for some strong glue.
Maybe a whiff of hairspray on them too, for good measure.

Put mine on last week, look great! Getting the bar ends off was a bit more of a battle than I had expected, bit of WD40 helped move the rubbers but still needed a lot of wiggle and some leverage.
Haven't noticed any increase in vibration so we'll chalk up another minor weight reduction and no sand required! Cheapest mod so far I think.
Also borrowed a friends machine polisher and cut out all the tiny scratches the tank had aquired through bad polishing and general abuse. Looks fantastic now, you can really see the metalflake sparkling nicely too. He's promised to give me some expensive wax to finish it off next week.

I have always been annoyed at how the metalflake appears. I would love to see a lot more of it more of the time. As it stands I can only really see it when the bike is clean and in glorious sunshine.

Easy to fit these grips, and I notice the bar vibes are down by a fair bit on
my c800. [Thin gloves]. Bar ends made no difference as far as I can see.
Well pleased.

Now these grips don't look right until you have a set of wide polished levers to match!

Got them in the US for £16! Mega bargain - I think even with international shipping they come in at under £30. How many will be sporting these lush levers within a week or two? Here is the Ebay number 370623754112
