Wide or Narrow there are now two types

Crampbuster now sells a wider and a narrower version.........I wanted to know if people have any experience with the wider version which I believe is the newer version.........

I actually have both on my bikes and honestly cannot tell much difference. I do know I can't ride for very long without one.

I've tried both. I like the narrow one, but both are good.

The best $11 accessory you can buy.

hmmm.. skinny over fat....

I currently use the WIDE one and think i prefer the narrow "old" style better.
The older RS' have a stiff throttle spring(s), Crampbuster is a must!

Also helped to back off on the spring a notch,much easier on the hand.
Use what works...Enjoy the ride......

I have the wide one on my LEFT grip. No bar backs on my bike so with the extra lean over, even with the bars all the way up, it gives me a big surface to rest my palm and not hold the grip or rest between my thumb and index finger.
