There are two major methods:



1- On an HD unwrap the bailing wire and duct tape from the grip and pull it off with vise grips.



2- On Japanese bikes turn the bike in at the nearest junkyard and buy a new one.

I've always cut mine off. Sometimes I even don't break the throttle assembly.

All I had to do was unscrew the bar ends, and got the grip off by wiggling a screw driver between the bar & grip. I was also replacing the handle bars so I wasn't worried about scratches. I did find that some "Goof-Off" residue remover helped the process.

Re: Need Help On Installing New Gripes

Take it to the shop, have them do it. They are paid professionals, with years of experience. Do not try it at home, as it might result in permanent injury or miserable death.

Put a little pine-tar on the old ones and save the 7 bucks and having to go through cutting them off with a razorblade and sliding the new ones on with a little hairspray;-)

Take off the bar-end weights and place the tapered end of your air nozzle (if you have a compressor) between the grip and bar. Hit the button and pull the grip off at the same time. If there's glue on the grip, the air should still take it loose, you may just have to hit it more than once.



Reverse the process to install new grips.

It doesn't matter as long as everyone understands just how incredibly dangerous and foolhardy it is to ride a motorcycle.

Re: Installing New Grips Can be Tough

Jane: I've heard police work is dangerous.

Frank: It is. That's why I carry a big gun.

Jane: Aren't you afraid it might go off accidentally?

Frank: I used to have that problem.

Jane: What did you do about it?

Frank: I just think about baseball.

Mrs Norberg: Oh, my poor Nordberg! He was such a good man, Frank. He never wanted to hurt anyone. Who would do such a thing?

Frank: lt's hard to tell. A gang of thugs, a blackmailer,an angry husband, a gay lover...
