Junkyard, Heeters to name a couple. Any motorcycle or moped 7/8 bar grips will work.

How about some Scott AT Pro MX grips.? Will this work? Does the measurement have to be 7/8" one side and 1" the next?

The fuel system is more likely the culprit, but check for a clogged exhaust, and also it could have carbon buildup on the head and piston. If you see rust in the carb, you can be sure you're going to have to kreem the tank(strip-down required) or clean it if the rust is only light.

Hello! It looks like you did all right on your deal. You got yourself a solid, respectable bike with 375 miles for $320. That's less than a dollar per mile. (I'll bet you're glad she didn't have 20,000 miles on her lol.) Enjoy and stay safe!
