    Hi there, Anyone replaced their grips with aftermarket ones? If so which bloody ones fit? Redline say that the throttle tube is ribbed so aftermarket ones are a pain. B&C say any of the Renthal grips will fit. I just want some new grips that aren't rock hard like the originals.

    Hi there, bought my first KTM last month and I absolutely love it. A few mods to come once I've got my wedding out of the way. Apparently you can't buy carbon when you've not sorted out the centrepieces.
