Sometimes, these grips are glued, but in the case that your's is not. What i do is open the upper lip with a screw driver, then pour in a little oil, then see how far you can get a small screw driver down between the grip and the handle and try to turn the screw driver in a parallel motion with the handle. This allows the oil to spread better inside, then see if it'll just twist around. If it does, then just twist it in an unscrewing motion and it should slip right off. Make sure you clean it well before putting it on the new handlebars.

Good luck

I need to replace the brushes. Don't know how the old one's are removed.

The carbonbrushes if they are short and you will replace them there is a long brown wire on one of the 2 brushes thats goes inside the handgrip but be careful there are 2 plastic pieces for the power licht and the carbon brush is on a electronic modul inside the handgrip by a sliding contact 90 degrees beware also on the black damping rings inbetween the machine and handgrip 4 pieces to protect vibrations . if you have open the handgrip i will say that you allways control the bearing at the end of the armature because its a very to small choosen bearing that is oft in bad condition i mean it , if it has its operating hours if the carbon brushes are short.but the handgrip must be opened for remove the brushes.

Saw runs great, however when cutting;the kerf goes to the left.Replaced the chain recently and it cut fine for a few cuts then started the same problem. Could it be the bar grove is worn and needs...

You probably have a warped bar. Remove side cover and chain, then remove and reverse bar ( move the top to the bottom ) . Pour bar and chain oil on the tip of your bar and spin gear inside with a flat screwdriver to allow oil total penetration. re - install chain and side cover, adjust chain and tighten cover.Make sure you keep the oil reservoir full - refill everytime you add fuel. When it starts cutting crooked just reverse the bar again.

I have a Stihl saw. It does not cut like it should. I have to tilt left or right for it to cut. Also its cuts better if cutting from the bottom up. What could be the problem?

Have you tried it with a different bar? I suspect you if you rotate the bar it will cut better from the top down and need to be tipped to cut upward. An inspection of you bar will probably reveal a wire edge. My Pioneer started cutting in an arch. I found the upper rear and lower front bar developed a wire edge (I regularly rotate my bar). I used a a file at 45° to the groove, removed just enough metal to see where the file had been returned my 20" bar to proper service. I think something similar occurred on your bar. HTH

Chain saw cuts great at start, not so good about 1/2 way

All things are possible but it isn't likely the bar is bent. Are you getting fairly large chips or sawdust? Try raising the rear of the saw a little when she quits cutting. so you have a small contact area instead of a wide flat cut. Run a flat file at an angle along both edges of the bar to remove any wire edge. Let me know what you find you have piqued my curiosity. Lou

Installing custom handgrips on victory 8-ball

Cut the grips with a box knife ir razor blade. Twist counter clockwisw and pull while twisting. Put the new grips on with a counter clockwise twist but rub egg white on the bars and inside the new grips. The egg serves as a lubricant when wet and as a glue when dry.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

How to change handgrips on royal star

Un familiar with Kuryakin iso-grips but normally you will remove the old grips buy cutting them off with a box knife. Mount the new grips using an egg white as lubricant inside the grip and on the handlebar. Use a rubber mallet if needed. The egg will dry up and serve as glue to hold the grips.
