Aftermarket grips -- recommendations?

Folks, I'm looking for some grips that provide some more cushion without feeling "spongy." Any recommendations/favorites out there?

Thanks -- I was looking at the Domino XM2s (https://www.motomillion.com/collecti...nt=22544940803).

Any tips on how to install? I wouldn't even know where to begin.

Thanks sinjin. Any idea how those compare to the 715s? Progrip has such a broad selection I'm finding it hard to narrow down to something that would fit my need.

I am not sure how all the various models compare, myself... the 717 was recommended to me and I like them far more than the stock. The compounds appear to be the same along the double density line and it seems like the major difference is the style of the grip, however that might be naÔve and wrong.

I have heard several best practices for installing the grips and the best ranked in my mind are using a few zip ties to slip the grip on and having a can of compressed air or an air compressor to assist in getting them in position.

Thanks sinjin. Any tips for getting the stock grips off? Will they just slide off? How do I remove the bar-end?

' using a few zip ties to slip the grip' **** that's genius, will have to try that next time

the clutch side isn't so bad. i used soap to provide some lube, lots of hard pushing

i'm down with Sinjin's zip tie trick, i'm assuming he means put a few length wise between the grip and the bar and slide on. some simple but genius (smack myself of the back of the head).

i took the throttle tube off. i got a bench grinder and ground the ring on the end, and the raised grip tabs. no way i could have gotten that grip on (very tight fit) with those things on
