Handle Grips

Hey Guys
Anyone changed the handle grips on their GW250.
Just wondering how hard it is.

I would like to get some like these

those look great, have you looked into any others?

one thing about those, the red might not go well with the red on the gw

These are great looking. What color is your Gw250? I'm just curious what color combo you are going to have on your bike once you get these installed.

@TwoFiddy That red could look good on a white or black GW250 though.

It would also give a good starting point to make other cosmetic changes to the GW250. A racing stripe, some other kind of decal, etc...

You have any other plans for your GW 250 @jeremy.wrx

that is a good point, definitely something to look into, doing it right might even maker it seem more along the lines of an OEM color scheme

Center Stand
Just fitted a Givi 30L hard case haven't been on a ride with it yet.

I put Oxford premium tourer heated grips on mine - had some issues with the shape of the throttle bar (a common occurance apparently) but managed to fit them reasonably easily - one of the best mods you can make imo
