    How Can I fit a Round Handlebar Grip to my RXT?

    The oblong grips that came on my new RXT just don't work for me. I mounted a set of old round grips but they eventually loosen and rotate. The reason is that the old style grips have a hex shaped male feature at the end that engages with a similar female shape at the end of the old style bars. The new grips have a notched bar end and a molded web feature at the end that locks into the notch. Has anybody found a round grip that fits the new style handlebars?

    The top grip is the one I want to fit. The bottom one is what came with the boat.

    The hex feature is visible in the end of the round grip.

    This is the shape of the bar end.

    There are two web shaped features that lock into the notches on the bars.

    any 99+ grip will work. The older grip you have pictured is for 98 and older handle bars.
