I was sitting there watching the softer side of Rita come down and looking at my torn foam grip after a short encounter with a mailbox - hit a soft spot coming over the curb. (glad I got my hand outta there). So I decided to replace the grip with some 7-strand 550 Paracord. It's definitely more comfortable, but I'm anxious to see how they vibes are. I trimmed about an inch off of the ends, too. That combinded with the not-so-grabby cord should keep the grips from grabbing ahold of my T-shirt during turns. I also removed those kill switch handles that kept rubbing a raw spot on my right hand. Does anyone know where I can get a generic Sea-Doo/Jet Ski type of dead-man switch to replace it?
