    As you have to remove the end caps to fit the Throttlemeister ends what is the ISO grip length then? Some of the other grips from heated Hot grips and others have a removable end cap too and can be cut down to size - I dont think thre ISO design allow this.

    My Stock grips are 4 3/4" and the ISO grip was 5 1/2". Stock grips work perfect for now ,just wanted those ISO grips to work.

    I don't see why they wouldn't work. You just won't be able to put the bar ends on.

    I may have to turn a spacer to fit those Grips on these bars. I think I can widdle something out for them.

    Just FYI -
    The stock grips can be removed from the left bar and from the throttle body.
    The Biltwells will slip right on. I would recommend a little grip glue, which I got at my neighborhood Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki dealer.

    For those with ISOGRIPS, are they the black ones? If so and you have the bar ends fitted, anyone mind taking a picture of the end by the bar end weight? I want them, but I use bar end mirrors so need to see if it'll work.
