Upgrade: Clip Ons vs. Grips & Bar Ends

Still not entirely sure on what advantages clip-ons have besides riding position. Was looking at Driven, Renthal, and Woodcraft. I only do street riding, so perhaps this is not necessary.

Then I was looking at grips and bar ends. Grips, I'm debating between Rizoma Sport Line Grips vs. Pro Grip Gel 719, combined with Motovation bar end weights/sliders to reduce vibration.

Help!

Clip-ons: replace just the bar and not the whole thing in case you ever go down. More aggressive positioning but may be uncomfortable for long street rides. You can reuse your old grips and bar ends on the clip-ons.

Spider grips are excellent, you may want to give them a look.

Looks like clip ons aren't necessary. Thanks for the input, guys.

Considering your going to need grip glue and sometimes those grips are on there so good you'll wish you just bought new ones so you can cut the old ones off. Do all 3 at the same time or atleast the clips and grips together. Then add bar ends down the road, after you lay it down and ruin the end of your grips. You'll also need to pay attention to how your bars/clips are setup. The stock position on my buell bars required cutting the end of the throttle tube and grip for bar ends to fit. On new bar/clips you'll be drilling the hole (for the throttle assembly, so it doesnt spin) yourself so add in room for that. If you get grips that cant be cut (metal) you'll be hating yourself and returning the bar ends.
