Finally got all the peices needed to install and adjust the pcs series II gunner spike grips. You may notice the throttle side of the handle bar is unpainted for smooth rotation. The only down side to grips with holes.

After taking a long ride with these... Let us know if they are comfortable. I like those but I kind of fear the holes for comfort...

Ive had the left one on for a week or so. The only complaint I have is without gloves on in traffic when your shifting alot the holes were rubbing the web part on my thumb a little, not bad but noticeable. I shifted my hand in on the smooth part of the grip and that helped alot. with gloves on there perfact. they grip really well, not slippery or anything like that with or with out gloves. Probably not ment for the touring rider. I'm a bar hopper, thats why I chose them.

Bar hoping and riding don't mix ! You should either paint the silver side black or sand the black side till it's silver. They look great tho. Nice choice

Ya, I'm a painter by trade, I'm afraid if I paint the silver side the grip wont turn as smooth as it should. So ill probably paint the black side. Even though I like the black better. And the Bar hopping is more for the biker social gathering, pool playing and messing with the Harley guys than drinking and riding. Thanks for the concern though :)

I have this type grip and had powdercoated bars. The throttle is fine with some paint but I did grind the bar down before coating. These grips are not very comfortable at all, gloves and a throttle
boss are a must. I have had mine for over 2 years.

That is actually a great idea. Don't know why grinding the bar down diddn't cross my mind. Problem solved. Thanks Deja!

I think i'm gonna give them some time and stick it out if they are not super comfortable. The throttle boss will probably be in my future.

I got mine from SMT but I love the look so much that I don't mind the pain....lol
The throttle boss I use is a rubber kury.
