Dude, the bold print was bad enough, but now you're making huge bold letters too! Cut it out :-X :P

The stock grips are perfectly fine, this is most definately a question for the unique section, wear your badge with pride my friend..."More comfortable grips?" :P :-X

Tell us why the stock grips "suck ass"...please! :P

the stock grips are not perfectly fine!!!! at least not for me their not.  If they were I wouldn't be asking the question.   If you aint got nuttin to say about the question that was asked, why reply?  move on to the next topic .If you think it should be in the "unique questions"  THEN MOVE IT! But Don't be in here busting my fucking chops  :jerkoff:   
It's people like you that are gonna make me go " Mr.3Holepunch " in these forums!
And I like big bold letters, they make me happy and I can read them without squinting.

Bwahahaahaahahha.  :P  To answer your question, i've heard they sell gel grips, where?  No clue.  I swapped my stock grips a few weeks after getting the bike because i USED to ride with no gloves and the stockers kept making my hand black from the sweat, so i bought some clear RR grips which are basically the same, but didn't leave the marks.

I have Pro Grip Gel Grips.  They don't feel much different but they do lessen the vibration noticeably.  Give'em a try.  I don't know where to get them, but I'm sure you'll find them on Ebay.

Perhaps a glove with a bit more padding in the palm might help you...

Figured I'd throw that out over the other suggestion of www.fuzzygripsforgirliemen.com  :P

 Well I would have if you would have just answered the question in a sutible fashion...

  I was wanting something to take off some of the vibration. I have some slight  Arthritis  in my hands and any little bit of help makes a difference, especially on long rides.

  Now be nice to me, it was just a simple question  :-*

Keep in mind that if you get gloves with more padding in the palms, you might end up with cramps in your hands because you'll have to grip the bars harder. Better gloves will help and the thing I like about racing style gloves is because they are made to form to a neutral hand position. I personally like a thinner palm in gloves because I get better contact and feedback from the clip-ons, although, having arthritis complicates the situation and it's possible that nothing will help other than anti-inflammatory medications and ice.

I tried on a pair of AlpineStars SP series gloves (think thery were the SP-1) at my local bike shop and they felt really nice... So I will probably try a good pair of gloves to see if that helps at all.  As far as the grips go I never really put different grips on a bike except for the "looks" factor, so I was just curious to know if their were any grips out there for comfort purpose.

  Thanks

These are the ones I had on my YZF and they were pretty comfortable ... I didn't even know they were gel grips  ???, I had bought them cause they looked cool. LOL    Guess I'll try a pair on the CBR.
