I'm thinking possibly ATV style grips would be an improvement since they don't have the inner flange like a motorcycle grip.

If you don't hug the inside of the grip like I do, you may never notice this.
My grips were a little shorter than the stock ones- so there's a slight 1/8 gap between the flange and the controls. I was wondering if the gap was going to be an issue- but so far, no.
