Grips on my k12gt are falling apart at 33K miles. I need to replace them. Have anyone installed some other brand of grips on K12GT? Like gell grips of some sort? I know people do that on other bikes, but I am not sure what fits (if anything) GT.

I ran a quick search on the forums, and I found how to install new BMW grips, but nothing else. Oh, and I hate grip puppies (or whatever that thing called and yes, I tried them ), increasing diameter of the grips is not for me.

Next time I have to do it I will find some roll on rubber tubing (remember it will probably only take it back to original size) or laced leather, as I saw someone fit.
