Can the two be used together? I know most people say they put the O'ring between the grip and the bar end weight... but I don't have the bar end weight anymore. Will it go on the inside of the grip and be effective there? How is everyone doing it that have the ISO grips. Thanks!!!

The O ring goes in the other end of the grip, betwen the grip and the space against the break res.

I use mine at the end of the grip by the weights, easy to get on and off. Daboo suggested putting something like a key ring circle on the O ring making it easy to remove, but pulling the circle to extract the O ring.

If the 650 grip is anything like that of the 400, I don't see how it would be practical there. You'd not want it in position all the time and there's nowhere to go with it at that end. With the bar ends, it easily rolls out of the grove onto the bar end.

I've been using a Cat 'O' Ring for probably 20 years and riding without one seems very foreign to me.
I just leave mine on all the time rolling on AND off the throttle, I find dampens the engine braking and I feel it lends more control overall.

BTW, I have a "Breakaway" which I would just about "Giveaway" at $200 I think it sucks (sorry Breakaway fans). I'll take a 50¢ Cat 'O" Ring any day!

But are you using it between the throttle and the end weight... Or the throttle and the brake reservoir? My only option is between the throttle and brake reservoir... I just need to know if it uses the same size o ring for either application

I have the Kuryakyn Iso Grips and use the "O" ring between the break reservoir and the throttle. I leave it there all the time and it helps to make the throttle operation smoother. It is the same size.
