so i finnaly got around to putting on my new clip ons. but how do i get the grips off??? the throttle side came right off, the other....wont move!!! any suggestions?
Mix up some water with a little dish soap. Pull the open end away from the bar and pour a little of the solution in. Start working the grip off the bar from the open end (this will help expand the grip a little and work the solution down towards the end of the bar). Add solution as needed. You can use the same solution when applying the grips. Avoid petroleum based fluids.so i finnaly got around to putting on my new clip ons. but how do i get the grips off??? the throttle side came right off, the other....wont move!!! any suggestions?
Your Mojo doesn't work on me.Another glorious 75-degree day in Phx!! Rode to work. For the grips, shoot some WD-40 under there and they'll slide right off.
Oops! I missed that Saint's bike is an '03. :-[Problem is he can't do that.
The '03 bikes have the bar risers cast in so he's left with two protrusions. Yech.
Some have cut them off. A lathe is useful for clean-up.
Otherwise you buy an aftermarket tripple. The catch is, I don't know of any available yet. In the fullness of time.....
BtW, I used short button-heads to fill my holes. They look neater than cap screws and no washers were needed. Check your local H/W store for stainless metric hardware. Forget Home Despot, but an Ace or neighborhood store should have some selection.
