I believe that you would take apart the switch housing, remove the throttle cables, remove the end cap, and slide off the grip. The left grip is a little harder because it is glued on. Remove the end cap then using elbow grease pull off the grip.
Good luck

DMTJOY is correct, but you may have to cut off the clutch side grip. After you cut off the grip, remember to use some emery cloth or somethng similar to remove the old glue.

This was the first mod I did, installed ISO grips. Love them. Just starting to show some wear after 60k miles.

Newbee lookin for help

I am trying to install new grips. How do I remove the end weights on the habndle bars. I thought there would be a screw in the center to loosen but it looks solid with about an 8mm allan head openening. Does the whole weight unscrew from the handlebars?

Thanks

Yes it does, if I remember correctly. Its been a couple of months since I put mine on and they say memory is first to go.

Cut one off and install the new?

After removing the bar end weights, can't you just cut both grips off without removing anything else? I didn't think you had to remove the throttle and cables and all.
