Grips to fit your 2008 Kawasaki Concours?
7/8" handlebars have been industry standard for quite a while (quiet, Harley owners), so I'm reasonably certain that's the diameter you need.

I had this NOS pair of fancy 2 Tone Gran-Tourismo Italian Grips in my parts collection. Comfy & look just right to me.

Will these work on my URAL with 7/8" handlebars?

Installed Biltwell 7/8" Renegade Grips today based on the recommendations of this thread. They seem a little short, do I just need to stretch them out more or are they just this short vs OEM?

They're just shorter than the OEM grips.

Ok, I was looking at some of your older photos and they looked like they fit a little tighter to the controls. Thanks
