Oh no no no.....  Those grips are pretty much same as the stock ones.  they are actually a little thicker overall but they are mostly for looks.  If you liked them on the Yami, then you'll really like the Pri Grips one...
You don't know what you don't know until you KNOW what you don't know............  WHAT??

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.

The N2 gloves from Audrey at www.motoliberty.com have the thickest palms I've seen.

Stay with the stock bars because anything aftermarket (racing) will be VERY buzzy.  The only other option might be a set of Heli-bars which are aftermarket, but not racing, so they're not as buzzy.  They raise the position of the bars which might help if you are experiencing wrist pain/fatigue.  They probably wouldn't do much for your hands though.

Oddly enough, some CRG levers would probably help you too.  They are TOTALLY adjustable (clutch & brake) and will adapt to your hand better than the fixed stock levers (yes, I know the brake lvr moves, but not as well as the CRG).

  Damn, I opened this thread because I saw "Dr. Spank" asking about "help with grips". I was going to recommend the "Reach around", the "Back hand" or the "Quick switch" (That's switching from the left hand to the right one or visa/versa really fast). Boy, was I way off.   :jerkoff:

girly hands?  :P nah it's just our hands are kinda smaller than you folks out there so i was thinking of swapping out the stocker with a thinner grip that's why i'm asking about galindo, i don't have an X-BOX so i wouldn't know if the controller's too big or the right size, i used to have PS2 but i sold it to buy stuff for my CBR i have no more time for games i must work hard to buy more cool stuff.  :drool:
