Assuming that they can come off without slicing the rubber on the inside, yes I will be selling them. I have to see if there is any glue on the clutch side grip holding it in place. I didn't install them, Yaffe did since I had to have them wire my bars.

Aftermarket grips shouldnt be glued, they will slide off easily when you take the controls apart. PM me if and when you decide on a new set

I too for the streamliner grips to match the rear of the bike but I'm a little disappointed in the end caps being not all one piece with the rear of the grip, and that they are loose and only getting looser and looser. I saw that a lot of the CVO grips are the same way. Any one running I tot the same thing with them or similar?

+1. Very good grips and very comfortable as well and you don't have to glue on HD grips. The OP should take inconsideration that in Tucson, AZ you may not want grips that have metal where your hands may be.

I work nights so its not that bad with metal grips. My softail had metal only grips on it for yrs...no comfort just looks...now I want comfort and hopefully it'll have looks.

I just picked up the hd heated grips (plain black rubber) & the cvo bars. Can't wait to put them on in a few weeks. Gotta finish a house project first.

Avon Grips Boss performance Rubber on my Ultra ~ Loved them ~ on the RG ~ I don't plan on changing the CVO grips.... The assists built in the AVONS make riding a pleasure ~ not as cool looking ~ but I ride 35 - 40k per year and I think cool is the number on the ODO...

HD Get a Grip will give you comfort and looks. Get a grip comes in 2 sizes regular and magnum for us that have bigger hands.
