    Hey guys new to the forum and had a question. Looking to change out stock night train bars for 16 in carlini apes. These bars are 1.25 in and the stocks are 1in. Question is do i need to change out my grips as well? Common sense tells me yes but im a dummy when it comes to this stuff. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Most all bars are smaller in diameter like the stock bars where the grips mount.

    Yes, grips should fall into the "industry standard" category where all pretty much are the same diameter so it doesn't matter which grip you purchase - should fit. Can always have the vendor give you a measurement, or grip recommendation - see if they will give a discount, or throw in on the deal (worth a try). Good Luck!
