The Pro Taper Pillow Top grip installed on the Honda CRF250 Rally
Pro Taper - USA
Cost - $20 AUD
The standard grips are small, hard and uncomfortable. I don't love them and I need to take them off to install heated elements. I decided to replace them with Pro Taper Pillow Tops after I saw another bike with them on advrider's Honda CRF250 Rally Owners thread.
These grips look great, dampen vibrations and are bigger. The grey ones match the bike's colour scheme. The soft compound helps dampen the vibrations from the single-cylinder engine and the large diameter is more comfortable for my, what I consider, small hands.
I'm thrilled with the choice. It's a cheap mod that improved comfort substantially. The Oxford Heated grips are a good alternative.
The throttle grip is hard to install. It's too small for the tube. I shaved down the plastic burs on the throttle tube and sanded it down to make the diameter smaller as shown in the heated handgrips article.
