The throttle side on most bikes has a larger diameter, due to the throttle barrel. The R12GS is large in diameter on BOTH sides due to the heated grips.That's why when you buy normal grips off the shelf, the inner diameter (ID) of one is larger.
Turns out I like the rain, easier to Spin, Skid and Slide.
