Saw a couple of nice looking grips at the local shop.

Anyone know who makes each one?

Domino's is the worst. Did you eat it like a giant cookie?

I'd say cutting the pizza is the least of your worries.

You hear so much bad about Domino's, I had a coupon so I figured I'd give them another chance. Isn't that pizza making 101, cut the freakin' pizza!

I've used grip puppies on 3 of my bikes and love them. Cheap, easy to install (and remove if you ever want to - I haven't), and they are really comfortable for me.
I just ordered my 4th pair for my FZ-07.

I ran grip puppys for a while.

Problem was I have small hands and the diameter was just a bit large for me.

Made me feel like I was hanging on to a Hog Leg Ferguson...aka HD.

That's what she said! ;)

I've also used the Pro-Grips a few times in the past. Really work well. They are grippy enough that you don't need to hold the throttle quite as tightly, thus reducing vibes into your right hand. I'll likely get a set when I pull my bars to anodize them black (whenever that happens).

Same here. I didn't like the grip puppys. The PGrip 714 feel perfect to me.

Another ProGrip fan here. Had several sets of different bike over the years and no complaints at all.
They're inexpensive, comfortable & come in different patterns and styles.
I've got 714s on the FZ.

Here how a 714 looks as installed on my FZ.
After removing the end weights and old grips, I installed the new ones and carefully cut the ends off with a single edged razor blade. Next, I trimmed the cut edge a bit before sanding them into a taper with a coarse sanding drum on a Dremel tool.
It did the job "okay".
