ODI Grips Extends V-Twin Range
Though best known for its MX products, the Riverside, California based ODI Grips reports such success with its VANS/Cult V-twin waffle sole design grips collaboration that they have stepped up to expand their range of colorway options for the custom market.
Designed by Cult, Vans/Cult V-twin grips feature the classic Vans waffle sole pattern built into a medium diameter grip that provides extra vibration dampening. Each pair of grips is constructed in-house at ODI using proprietary grip compounds "for a consistent feel that provides exceptional control in all conditions."
Newly updated colors for 2020 include white, gray, red, green and iridescent purple (still available in black, Limited Edition Gum Rubber, brown, orange and Ox Blood) – 125 mm long, both 1" and 7/8" handlebar fitments are available.
ODI Powersport Sales and Marketing Manager Johnny Jump told us: "We've had quite a bit of demand for a throttle tube to pair these with, making it easier to mount them as replacements for the OE throttle tube. Since we already make a billet throttle tube for Supercross and Motocross racers, it was a perfect fit to our V-twin collection.
"Therefore, we have just released two new ODI Fusion throttle tubes for H-D V-twin applications. The ODI Fusion alloy throttle tubes for '84 and up V-twins (H-D cable actuated) are made in durable 6061 aluminum, have a hard anodized black finish and feature integrated Teflon sleeves to deliver very smooth throttle pull and return with machined throttle barrels. Also available for '08 and up H-D TBW applications, geared for H-D Throttle-by-Wire housing.
"In addition, we have taken our popular Podium Motocross handlebars and made two different versions for H-D V-twins, a 1" OE replacement and a tapered 1-1/8" to 1" controls Moto style handlebars. Each is routered for internal run wiring and notched for H-D Throttle-by-Wire housings and have a knurled clutch slide for improved adhesion when used with ODI slip-on Moto grips. They have been shot-peened and hard anodized black for high durability, are are 31.5" wide by 4.75" high with a 2.12" sweep."
ODI V-twin MOTO 1 1/8" handlebars mount to 1" controls and bring "ODI's taperwall motocross technology to the V-twin handlebar market." Made in high-strength, seamless double-butted 2014-T6 aluminum alloy, for "increased strength and flexibility with the tapered wall thicknesses." The oversized 1 1/8" clamp diameter is said to improve bar/clamp grip (requires 'oversized' 1 1/8" handlebar mounts or risers).
ODI’s 1" V-Twin Moto handlebars mount to 1" controls and are made in 7075-T6 alloy for strength. They are a 1" throughout and are a direct replacement for OEM bars.
ODI's V-twin accessories are available from Drag Specialties (Parts Unlimited, Parts Canada, Parts Europe) and Western Power Sports/Hard Drive.
