    Nice design, in 60 Days, Kuryakin will have almost the exact same ones, for less, of course!

    Wouldn’t mind trying a set of these out. They look comfortable. I just wonder if they will work with my heated grip inserts?

    The Avon grips are only $59 and the Kury Akyn grips are $79 I try and sell the American made Avon grips when ever I can.

    RE: “Will they work with my heated grip inserts?” They will NOT. Avon’s use of double-sided tape makes the grip come loose and slide around when using heated grip inserts. Just completed a CA to TX run and my Avon Air Grips were comfortable for sure, but having to keep shoving the left grip back up the bar in the freezing rain every five miles sucked. Not sure if switching to a heavy grip glue will solve the problem because the “air pockets” inside the grip are essentially areas where the grip doesn’t the glue or the bar. Just FYI.
