I'm looking at some D3's but they seem to have very mixed reviews and some installation issues. Can anybody share their firsthand experiences with them on FZ please ?

Thanks,Pete

I used them on my R6. They were a little more difficult to install compared to normal grips. Mostly because of the metal collars. The grips feel good and comfortable. They wear very VERY fast. Worst waste of money on my r6. They get sticky and Idk what else to say about them. They look great though. Still don't recommend them. Unless they changed between now and then.

Hit the nail right on the head. Every word is 100% my experience as well.

Also the gold isnt really a good match. I had to return them.

Just installed some ProGrips last night; super easy install and they feel amazing! They're really cheap, too! Highly recommended.

Those Axis look great. I've lost count how many rubber grips I've done over decades, were they a pretty easy install or ?

I have the Axis grips, hand them for about 1000 miles. Still like new, very easy to install.

I've got them on my K75s and ran them on my 900F good grips ! I think I'm going to go with some black D-Axis. Will I need glue ?
