thanks for the help guys I have been wanting to try out a set of the odi grips. I was looking at my handlebars on my 700 today and I think that the one side of them might have got bent a little when I had my crash last month. so I might have to get a new set of bars latter this summer or something. but I don't know for sure it might just be something wrong with my hand guards I will have to look at it closer tomorrow and see. but at least I'm riding again.
