I'm interested in some opinions on these grips. I know most folks have the ISOs and I'm considering them as well but I'm a little concerned because my hands are fairly small. The Kawi grips look like they might have a smaller circumference but I haven't felt them. Also, I can't seem to find out if they come with the throttle tube or not. Anyone have them or seen them?

I have them. They come with the throttle tube. Very easy to install. The ISO grips are a little chunkier compared side by side. Some dealers stock both, so you can go in and look at them both. I like the way the lines run. I find my grip better, and it's easier to relax the throttle hand some on longer rides. You can buy them for a little less from Ron Green on ebay. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. The chrome is metal right? I finally found a site with some reviews and some folks were talking about plastic. It wasn't clear if all the reviews were actually for those particular grips though.

We stock both at work, and the F&S look better (IMHO) than the Kuryakyn (SP?)... But then again, anything chrome turns me off, so :p

The FS grips are chrome, but there are some imitation ones floating around on ebay. They sell for 15.99 so you get what you pay for. If you go to a dealer, they should have the originals.
