Best mod ever: Kury ISO Grips

Wow...

I have always cramped on my throttle hand since I've owned this bike. I chalked it up to the handlebars. I replaced the grips this weekend with some Kuryakyn ISO Grips. WOW. The difference is INCREDIBLE. It feels natural now, even with the stock handlebars. I am still waiting on my 950 bars to come in that I was going to swap them with. I am just going to sell those bars at a discount now. Now if I could just get a seat that would work the best for me. Custom seat from Pillow Top Seats was worse for me than stock. Mustang sucks...About to try ED's seats...

GET ISO GRIPS!

EDIT: Just FYI I didn't use end weights either. For my wife's bike I did use end weights just in case because the vibration bugged her significantly.

+1 on the ISO grips. I had them on my Goldwing and it was one of the first things I added to the 950. Love 'em.

@tigrzeye I would jump on them except for the fact I received an email from their owner stating that their seats are only made to handle weight up to 260 pounds.

"Our seat for the 1300 Star is designed for sizes up to 260 lbs, I'm sorry we can't help you.

Thanks for your inquiry"

I have spent so much money trying to find a perfect seat and spending another $450 on something that I might not like just wouldn't work out.

I have the ISO flamed grips on my 1300. They are cool to look at but they get uncomfortable after about an hour.

Good point, just thought I might mention in case you were interested.

Definitely a step up from the stock grips on the 1100, but I don't think I would say best mod ever

I had iso grips and they bugged me after a while. I switched to the Avon air grips and they are great long or short distance. I found its nicer to have something squeazable if need be but my glove holds it just fine without a lot of force as well.

Cruise control is way better than any grips though.

Have you tried GreatDayToRide.com? He did my seat and it's awesome. I think I paid $120 for both seats.

There's only ONE cruise control adaptable to the 1300. Otherwise it's throttle locks.
