Stock for 24,000 miles. They're starting to wear a bit though. Are ProGrips really much better than the stockers? I've never paid much attention to grips.

yes, for the street, pro grips gel grips are nice because they absorb a lot of the vibration.

for the track, the renthals are great because they offer different compounds which all serve different purposes. the firm (hard) grips give you a ton of asphalt/pavement feedback, but can make you tired quick, the medium compound gives you the best of both worlds with comfort and feel of the road, and the soft gives you comfort with little feel.

I have installed Aprilia grips on several bikes, they are checkered just right with medium softness.
