    Hey everyone.
    After 47 years of riding I purchased a 'holdover' 2014 Raider S. Beautiful blue paint. Looking forward to the people, stories,and wisdom on the forum.

    Cool Ditto !

    Hi there caperaider ! I too have bought a Brand New 2014 Blue Raider S back in April 2017 and I absolutely love the look and most of all the ride of the machine. The owners manual calls it Purplish Blue. The Raider is very strong compared to the bikes I have owned or even ridden over the past 35 years of riding. I am, however, trying to swap out the hand grips to a little fatter grip due to throttle fatigue in my index finger on longer rides. I thought this would be an easy enough ordeal but keep hitting a few speed bumps in the buying process! The Raider has 1 1/4" handlebars according to the Yamaha website and most of the online sales sites show that their grips will not fit my bike. Does anyone out there have any experience with this replacing of the hand grips on the newer Raiders? I was told by the parts department at the dealership where I purchased it that 1" grips were what I needed to buy. He said it is possible that the bars are slendered down out closer to the grips but everything he shows says 1". When I decide to make the swap I will post the results. Any info is appreciated
