    I am going to try it, but I am going to cut the OTHER end so I will have that big flat base to set it down on.

    Glad to see that you found the right grip. Show pics of the finished product or you didn't do it. :p

    Enjoy. :vapor:

    I don't think just any motorcycle grip will fit. I am not a motorcyclist, but I believe they must be grips for a motorcross or dirt bike. The set comes with a pair of grips, one will have a larger inner diameter, that one will fit over a Provari.

    These are the ones that Spraintz and I used: Scott MX II . Scott MX II MX Grips - Dirt Bike Motocross - Motorcycle Superstore

    I think they may be rather common. The first place that I happened to check, a local neighborhood Honda motorcycle shop, had them hanging on display by the checkout desk.

    I believe they are called 'twist' grip or twist throttle grips. Lol but I opened mine, took one out, and was like what the heck it is too small! Duh I tried the other grip and it fit fine. Didn't realize at first that the ID of the grips is different between the two.

    Yep...the one has a larger ID to accomodate the plastic throttle tube. I'm going to check the local shops first. If I can't find it local I'll have to just order it online. Thanks Baditude, for the link.

    My Provari came in the mail today, and yes, Ive heard they are almost bullet proof. However, the finish is just beautiful and I want to keep it that way. :D

    This is a bit off topic... but I was skimming this thread, and after happening upon this image, I couldn't help but think it was something else (I blame the angle), and right after that thought crossed my mind, my lady walked into the room and saw the image and flipped, saying "you better use that thing on yourself before you try it on me"... I guess I wasn't the only one who thought this was something else. :oops:

    I've got one of those. Do you find it gets easier (looser) after it stretches a bit? kinda tight on my provari.
    I'm thinking about making a kydex sheath for mine soon.
