Spider Grips

Ordered a set of these with my stands:


Question: One grip feels much thinner than the other, the difference in material thickness is quite obvious. What's not equally obvious is which grip goes on which side?

I would just make sure "spider" would read right side up when you are looking down at them.

Now there is a guy with common sense. Probably even hangs the toilet paper so that it comes over the top!

Close, but no cigar. 'SPIDER' is written on the grips twice, 180 degrees opposite eachother, on in each direction. So they can go on either handle and still read correctly.

It may be obvious when I pull the old ones off and compare them, just checking to see if this was common knowledge to anyone that's ever replaced them.

Put them on the side it fits then

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!
