Instructions Difficulty: Easy Things You’ll Need:

  • Razor blade OR Air compressor
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Glue cleaner
  • Soft cotton towel or cloth
  • Warm water
  • Pro taper grip glue
Step1 Decide which method you want to use to remove your old motorcycle grips. There are three methods in which you can use. The quickest would be with a razor blade. However, if you fear scratching the chrome or wires are underneath the grips, this may not be the best choice. An air compressor can help slide the motorcycle grips off with ease. However, if they are attached with adhesive, you may need to loosen the glue. A flat-head screwdriver may be your best bet with wires and glue. You can ease the screwdriver between the grip and the bar and pry it up gently without cutting wires or damaging the chrome. Step2 Pop off the bar end of the motorcycle handle. With a flat-head screwdriver, this should be simple. Be careful not to damage these pieces. The threads must be in tack to put them back on. If they become damaged, you will need to replace them. Step3 Using the desired method in step 1, remove the old motorcycle grips. Step4 Clean the old glue from the handle. This can be accomplished with any type of glue cleaner and a little elbow grease. When the glue has been removed, dry the handlebar completely with a soft cloth towel. Step5 Soak your new motorcycle grips in warm water to loosen them up a little bit. This will make it easier to install the grips quickly. Step6 Use your grip glue. You will want to add this around your handlebar where the grip will be placed. You will want to do this one side at a time. There are several methods that are recommended for this task. However, Pro Taper Glue seems to be the most recommended. Step7 Slide the motorcycle grips on each side. When they were soaked in warm water, it will be simpler to slide them on. Again, do one side first, then the other. Step8 Remove the excess glue and water with your cotton towel. This will clean up any mess left behind and give your motorcycle a pristine look. Step9 Let the glue dry for at least a couple of hours. The recommend time can be found on the glue of your choice. Step10 Replace the bar end gently. Be sure to screw it in until it cannot pop off again.

How to install new grips to my harley 2006 sportster xl1200c


pay attention to how it comes apart so it will be easier for you to replace.
there are 2 torx head bolts near the end of the grips in a cast alloy housing which also holds the mirrors in place, undo the bolts and remove, this will let the grips slide off the handle bars but on the right side you will have to undo the adjusting nut on the throttle cable and release the tension to be able to remove the cable from the grip so you can slide that off as well
