I own a 2011 triumph storm. I have been doing some customizing to make it my own. I am looking for new grips and have found a style i like but am unsure of what size to purchase. anyone know what size the stock grips are for the storm? Question two... I have been considering buying the dart manta screen any thoughts? is or has anyone added one to their bike? just to give you som background i am running short tors without the cat. a power commander V, the entire exhaust system heat shields inluded have been ceramic coated black and all the controls and pegs have been podercoated gloss black. and just put triumph aftermarket black mirrors. slowly but surely the chrome is going away.

I prefer the Dart Manta. Others might like the Switchblade. I find that Manta is fine a interstate highway speeds, but don't expect the protection of a large full screen. IMO, the TBird blocks some of the wind from down and front because of the substantial gas tank and radiator.

Same bike here. Not sure size but I put the black kuryakyn grips on from fasteddysports. Love them. I started with the dart screen and works as advertised. Blocks wind from body making highway more comfortable. However found it directed wind right at my mouth. Just changed to the switchblade. This works better for me. Just how you sit. I also like being able to pull off the windshield altogether as it looks better without either. Both offer a good solution but not the protection of a full screen.

Please post a pic of your bike. Curious to see the mods so far.

I honestly don't know the size but believe fasteddysports.com only have one option.
