    2012 FX HO Replacement Grips

    So...uh... I had a *little* spill today WOT trying to keep up with Tiny on his 2012 RXPX

    I got some SERIOUS air a few times and ended up getting thrown off... I tried holding on but this happened:

    Is there anything else on the market or should I just stick with these?

    Thanks!

    I saw this on the R&D Website. I do have to say that I am "lukewarm" at best about the new style hand grips. JB

    Not 100% sure if these will fit a FX HO. If it has VTS, then they should. MAN, you must have had a death-grip on that thing!

    i have the R&D grips on my SHO with protaper SE bars.
    In the future just let go. You can dislocate your shoulder doing that.

    ...ok... next time I'll just let go for sure. Everything happened so quick though I guess my instinct was just to hang on... One second I'm almost doing a hand stand and the next I'm looking up through murky water.

    I found a stock grip so I'll stick with those for now since imho they are pretty comfortable on long runs... thanks everyone for the info!
