Fancy aluminum can-O-Goo, came from the giant box of female beauty crap that is warehoused upstairs. I just walked down the goo isle and found it between a jar of blue-ish goo and a tub of red goo...
I suppose this is what is meant by goo-goo dolls?

And those little heater wires are molded into the original thin grips like you find on 1200's and some special 1150's. Using compressed air might not leave the little heater wires in tact.
BTW, Nick's 2004 1150 adventure, (same year but the slow color) has the ribbed type, while my bike had the thinner later-model types.
