Driven D3 grips for the Guzzi...
I bought some red/black Driven D3 grips for the Moto Guzzi, the red aluminum tubes match the bike frame perfectly. Tomorrow I will try them out for comfort, they are gorgeous.
Installation took a bit of work, but a fellow V7R rider in Austin helped me out. I had to cut a bit of the throttle side plastic tube to get one grip on. A help was using a long thin metal skewer and WD40 to get the old grips off without cutting. Install with hairspray did the trick for solid sticking after cleaning with contact spray. Checking the throttle response I had to add a couple metal washers to get the throttle not binding.
Stock grips often are , and these should help my hands on longer rides.
I also added rubber side tank knee grip pads. Aftermarket exhausts might be in my future, and maybe a small dart flyscreen to help out at freeway speeds.
I am working on a custom number instead of the stock "7" front plate. We will see how that goes.
Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly...

I have some of the original D3 grips...... sitting in my tool box. Ha.. Had them on my Gixxer for a long time, but took them off when I started going to the track a lot more. They certainly ARE comfortable!!
