Best Hand Grips?

Need to replace my hand grips (stock) and I really loved the stock ones. Has anyone done this and found an aftermarket grip that they love?

Side not: I snapped the cap on the end where the screw goes into the handle bar. Know where a replacement can be had?

question #1 depends on your wallet. For top money probably the ODI grips. I went with Pro Taper MX Pillow Top Lite Grips. http://www.protaper.com/products/gri...illow-top-lite

question #2 anywhere that sells oem parts, or find someone on here that upgraded oem bars and still has old parts.

odi lock on grips are good and there is a couple more thats makes lock on now! odi was the first i believe. i have had trouble in the past with my slip on grips with glue come loose on my old 400ex and i thought i glued them good! it dam near made me crash! i would go for the odi lock on for 7/8 bars . odi and all of them have a couple different choices on the pattern like pillow top and more agressive than that...

Ensure you get atv grips and not dirtbike, dirt bike have one that is larger to fit over the throttle tube.

Yea or you have to buy two pairs, that's what I did for the kids quad. The local parts shop here http://www.ironpony.com/ had some on super close out $1.79 a set, so I bought two. Ended up cutting the larger ones down and putting them on my harbor freight jack T-handle.

Sounds like yet another vote for pro taper grips.

I have Odi lock on grips and absolutely love them. I know the Pillow Top grips also get a lot of rave reviews but I've never had them.
