Where to buy Grip Puppies???

I've done a little research to try and find a vendor that sells Grip Puppies but
haven't had any luck. Can anyone steer me to a vendor that sells Grip Puppies?

Thanks

Get the small one's and use soap to put them over your stock grips. Then watch out as they might squish out a bit and rub on the bar ends, especially on the throttle side, just trim off the excess with an exacto knife and your set.

What has kept me from ordering them so far has been the concern that they may absorb water. If not I'll give 'em a go!

Haven't ridden in the rain so I have no idea, but there cheap enough that if they were unacceptable in the rain you could just cut them off and try something else:mrgreen:

Has anyone installed Grip Puppies over stock heated grips?

Curious how much heat loss there is, if any?

Not over STOCK heated grips. . . my setup includes Symtec heaters under stock grips, all covered neatly by Grip Puppies. Soft, comfortable and warm.
