I found a pair on eBay that I like, and they're 7/8 on the left, and 1 inch on the right. Will they work? Sorry about the stupid question...

All grips are two different sizes for motorcycles. The reason being is that one contacts the handlebars and the other the throttle tube that floats on the handlebars. So yes 7/8 and 1 inch. But that set will be called a 7/8ths set. Bigger bikes with bigger bars take a 1 inch set.

Awesome. I was just making sure the 7/8 set was the one I needed. Also, this says it doesn't include a throttle place...what is that?

Ok. I think what is meant is the grips aren't the type that eliminate the throttle tube and replace it. That's fine because that's not what you want.



Go ahead and buy these ones.
