what brand of grips do you use?

Since I am beginning the conversion of my f4 to a track bike I was wondering what type of grips are good for the track. I have been reading up on the gel grips...any suggestions? thx.

does it cut down on vibration using the gel grips? My F4 is kinda buzzy and I am think they may help.

Yeap those are them. I put the left one on for the first session and immediately felt the difference. After doing the round robin my right hand went numb so decided to go ahead and switch that one as well and for the rest of the day my hands were pain free.

FYI track only here.

U OBVIOUSLY HAVE NEVER DONE AN ENDURANCE RACE ! those in my opinion suck for a race bike. very little cushion and if u have aftermarket clip-ons, they will vibrate ur hands numb. just ask BC about that . run them all u want, but there are much better grips out there for track use. renthal should stick to making dirtbike grips, cause their street stuff blows !
