John they are the same as mine except I fitted Kuryakyn bar end weights which fit to the cheap grips BUT you need the relevant metric allen head screws as the US ones are American fine (AF) so wont fit the Chinese thread.
That's if you need to swap them that is as the weights are a high price for what they do as you could fill the bars with sand to lessen any vibration.
If you do use sand then I'd fill the bar from one side & then use some silicon sealer to stop any sand coming up to the twistgrip end & then do the same to the clutch side, this forms a barrier but can easily be removed at a later date if needed.

I've been looking at the black version of those grips, my only concern is how much hassle would it be to remove the left hand grip when it comes time to replace them. If they are made of billet aluminium will they need to be cut from the bars?

I'd say they'd come off pretty easy Harry, As long as you don't go overboard with the adhesive when you put them on, it's only the rubber infills that touch the bar on the left grip.

Thanks Simbo, I had visions of trying to cut through the alloy with a hacksaw.
