All Black Kuryakyn ISO Gold Wing Grips that fit over your factory heated grips. For those that want an alternative look to the chrome grips, these are the perfect match.
I bought these to replace my chrome ones....wanted a different look. Install is a little challenging...always a little time cosuming to get the grips to click together...tight fit! Love the black but, diappointed in the quality. Power coating is chipping in strange places. I just touch them up with black paint. Kury needs to re-look at their process on these. Just my 2 cents..
Installed these on my 2012. Love the feel of the bigger grip. One grip had a slight overlap where the edges are not flush with each other, a minor issue. Agree with other reviews with regards to heat, can feel the heat, but is not quite as warm as stock. I also installed the end weights and red accent ring.
Installed these without really knowing if they would affect the heat from the grips. Does affect a little but go up one more notch on the setting and you can feel them quickly. Really added a great look to my 12 black wing. Used the chrome rings and black weights to complete the look. You will need the weights to take away the little bit of vibration that you will feel without them. Easy install with an extra set of hands.
I bought these black grips with the weighted ends about a year ago. They were relatively easy to install, they look nice and they are comfortable. Shortly after installing them I posted a review on this site which basically had these same comments and also noted that they do not get nearly as warm as the stock grips and they take longer to heat. Iâ€™m disappointed to see that review has been removed from the site. After riding with these grips for about 9 months I decided to remove them since it was getting cold again and I prefer the high heat available from the stock grips for those days when I donâ€™t want to wear my heated gloves. After removing the grips I can give you a better estimate of the heat you will receive. With these grips the MAXIMUM heat I received was equivalent to the heat received from setting #2 on my 2008 GW standard grips. So if warmth is important, try setting your handlebar heat to #2 to see if it is providing you with enough heat before you buy these because that is all you will get with these if you have the same experience I did.
I like the comfort of the larger grip so much I will likely reinstall these next spring but I am disappointed in the lack of heat that is transferred and the lack of clarity on how much heat is lost by installing these.
