The neoprene used to make Grip Buddies is very similar to the type found on a wetsuit and this means that they do provide some insulation and heated grips are less efficient. This one-owner bike is in excellent condition overall but it does show a bit of wear here and there…like on the hand grips. The original owner had replaced the clip-on handlebars with a new upper triple-tree clamp, risers and a nice ABM handlebar, which yielded a more reasonable riding position than BMW intended. He also added a set of BMW heated grips, which have a thinner diameter than most standard motorcycle grips, probably to allow better heat transfer. The heated grips have become worn and they feel slippery but they still get nice and hot, at least on the second setting. In any case, I had two goals in mind before I bought the Grip Buddies. First, I wanted to increase the diameter of the BMW grips and second, I wanted to improve the feel to remove the slippery sensation from the worn original grips. Some owners have solved both of these problems by carefully cutting and removing the outer part of the heated grips, leaving the heating elements intact. Then a new set of grips can be installed over the top of the heating elements. I may try that one day when I have more time, but in the meantime, I wanted a quick solution, which is what led me to order a set of Grip Buddies.
