It dpends on the grip of course but ya, the 2 bikes I built including my own that came with stitched leather grips work fine, you have to really soften up the throttle one and maybe even loosen the stitching, but they worked great and even better than the foam ones as far as style and comfort.

This is my Giant Suede's grips.

Just for giggles and grins, this my bikes throttle grip showing how the Dual-Pull teeter-totter brake handle works with 2 different kinds of brakes requiring different pull lengths to work right.

As you pull the lever it takes out all the slack in both cables first and then starts applying even force to both, I love 'em ;-}
