    After having the heated grips fitted to my Touring, I installed a pair of Grip Puppies. Less vibration and very comfortable also no issues regards the operation of the heated grips.

    I have used GRIP PUPPIES on all of my bikes. They are foam, and make the O.D. of the OEM grips comfortable.

    Well, that's interesting, because I had assumed you meant the LHS as where a cage driver would normally sit. World wars have started with lesser misunderstandings than this.

    Hi Robert,
    I am thinking to install this exact combination (heated grip + puppies) but I am concerned about the potential too large of a diameter with both grip/puppies combined. Can I ask for a favor? Could you please measure the circumference of your grip when you have 5 minutes to spare?

    Thank you in advance.
    Martin

    image.jpeg Hi Martin,
    I actually found the heated grips narrower than the stock grips, so with the grip puppies installed the diameter is 40/42mm.
    Regards.
    Rob
