I think mine are Bikemaster foam grips. I like them because the outside diameter is a little bigger and they are easier to resist the spring torque of the throttle. The narrower grips pull on the palm of the glove and can cause annoying wrinkles.

I have fat aftermarket grips on two bikes and skinny factory grips on three of my bikes.

I like the skinny grips because I can get to WOT more easily.

Bish, right throttle side housing COMES with new grip installed from Yammies factory, and having gripping flutes on plastic throttle housing, is difficult to remove grip. Left side is just an internally smooth grip.

Bish, for left side grip, no matter grip choice, either use Grip Glue(which most motorcycle retailers have in a tiny tube), or better yet, purchase a small can of White Rain or Final Net hair spray and spray left side of handlebar. Immediately install left grip and let sit overnite. Gives the best grip adhesion I've ever come across and is cheap. Learned this many decade ago when involved in the moto-x world.
