Got a pair of these neoprene stick on pads for the grips. They solve the problem I was having
from the grips being a bit too small in diameter, throttle arm soreness from some new arthritis.
They are squares of a sort of wet suit material with velcro on one edge. They wrap around the grips and the velcro holds them on.
There is some self adhesive tape to stick it to the grip but I am not using it yet.
What they do is cushion the grip and make it 6mm larger in diameter. The result is less pressure on my hands and
the larger size makes the throttle a bit smoother. So far I like them.

Here is a review:

Plus 1, They are a good thing.  I had them on my Shiver, should fit a set on the G as well.  AKA Grip Puppies and other brand names.

And I keep telling you guys, its time to take a teaspoon of semen cement powder and HTFU!

Having said that, one ride in 3 months and I'm aching in a few new places, s'pose if I don't use it I'll lose it.

I'm a long time user of Grab-On's [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . They slip on with soapy water and stay put. Never tried Puppy's, but looks to be a good solution too.

Never like those...and once you get good winter gloves it's a pain in the balls to operate the throttle.
They're for guys with long fingers.
