Had some extra cash from reffing volleyball, so I replaced my Grip Puppies with Kuryakyn ISO Grips, Black, with the matching Throttle Boss. Turned out great. I now have some bar end weights if anyone needs them.
Yeah, I had Grip Puppies before I installed these, but they were starting to deteriorate and leave black reside on my hands/gloves. If you get these, just be aware: when they say that the glue sets up instantly in the absence of air, they MEAN it. You really need to know how you want them positioned and be sure to twist them into that position pretty quickly when installing. Mine worked great, and I love the feel. The Throttle Boss is worth the extra investment.
I will agree with Renegade1978, and will add that making sure the Throttle Boss is what needs to be in the proper position. You can loose the benefit of the Throttle Boss if it is to high or low. And in my opinion the Throttle Boss(installed properly) is worth its weight in gold.
There are 4 small bolts for mounting it to your grips. The Throttle Boss has slots that allow for some "wiggle room" and you can always unbolt it and move it to another position. Mine works great. Only had to re-adjust it one time.
I have the throttle boss on both ends as well. Added comfort and more symmetrical in my eyes. Loosening the 4 screws allows quite a bit of adjustment. If it isn't enough, Just take it off and move the screw holes around one way or the other. I love my Iso grips!
