I like the Cycra ProBends - I think they are stronger than most.

They need to be shortened on the inboard ends so as not to take out the gauges, but then they work.

If you don't have heated grips, just about any will work. The TT's are spendy due to the special end that works with the grip wires.

The Acerbis Rallye's are what TT uses, but the Acerbis version comes with the non heated grip ends for the bars... there used to be a version (now NLA) that had integrated tuen signals

*EDIT*. Damnit Solo beat me to the punch!

I've got the TTs with large spoiler and like them a lot. If you have heated grips, these are the only ones I'd recommend due to the modified bar stays designed for the stock heated grips.

I did have to use the Dremel to relieve some plastic away from the brake fluid reservoir but depending on your windscreen and bar tilt this might not be necessary.

If you don't have heated grips I would recommend trying the Pro Bends - I have them on my XRL and they are nice. They are actually supported by an aluminum spine, unlike the TT Acerbis models.
