Default Memory Foam Avon grips and vibrations

I would like to hear some opinions on these memory foam grips and potential vibration dampening properties. Just got set (medium size) but feels these are too big for me and I wonder if vibration dampening is real deal here especially with small size.

At this point I consider “get a grip” HD grips but I heard these dont do anything to improve vibrations at all.

Please share your experience

Both of my bikes have Avon grips on them so I am satisfied. Pretty good bang for the buck IMO.

I've had them on my for over a year. Feel great. No vibration thru mine. I have the large ones. I just bought another set because I'm getting ready to change bars.

Good to hear I will expect small ones will be less dampening but hope not much. I try to set up my bike for long distance comfort.

I also have the large diameter ones and love them. They do a great job of eliminating buzz in the bars.

Put a set on my 2016 883 Iron . Like them alot and yes they have reduced the vibration for me . Would not spend one time on the aftermarket Harley Taiwaneses / China junk grips that Harley puts their name on and sells . Avon grips are American made, support them .

Keep it coming guys I am still torn apart but so far it is favorable for Avon. HD style is more ergonomic and looks better but I value this anti vibration properties for my needs. Would like to hear from someone that has small one as well.

I use the small Avon memory foams and cramp busters on both grips. I have carpal and cubital tunnel in my left arm. This combo has kept me going for longer than anything else I’ve found

Yes I already installed Steiger Performance vibration dampers as first step and it helped a lot. They recommended kury ISO grips as good combo but I cannot stand them (look of it) so I consider memory foam instead. Wont lie not big fan of Avon look too but better then squeezed sausage of Kuryakyn ISO

I have the 'Get a Grips'. They work fine for me. Strangely enough, when I bought a Harley Davidson, I factored in that I was gonna get vibration thru the grips. Installing polyurethane riser bushings helped. But there's never been so much vibration that I found it objectionable.
