The left side grip just slips onto the handlebars. There may be some glue to help hold it on. I usually take a very small bladed screwdriver and slide it between the handlebar and the grip and spray some WD40 or something in there. You may have to loosen the bolts that hold the switch housing on and move it inward to the center of the handlebars just a bit to get the screwdriver under the grip.

On the right hand side, things are a bit different. The handlebar grip is on a plastic tube that operates the throttle cables. To get it off, you must loosen both of the cables at the adjusters. Then, take the bolts out that hold the top and bottom halves of the switch housing together. Seperate the switch housing so that you can get to the cables in the housing. Carefully, remove the cables and the ferrells from the twist grip and remove it.

Lubricate the new throttle sleeve with white lithium grease and slide in onto the handlebars. Reinstall the throttle and idle cables with their ferrells in the appropiate slots. Reassemble the switch housing and readjust the throttle and idle cables. Check for proper operation prior to starting the engine.

Good Luck
Steve

How do i talk off my old grips?


Right grip will come off when brake perch and switch housing comes off. Left grip is usually glued on and when clutch perch and switch housing is removed it is usually cut off but if a screw driver is worked down inside of the rubber grip and some brake kleen sprayed in between the screwdriver and the grip and the screwdriver is wiggled and worked around the rubber grip will usually come off undamaged.

Have a 2006 dyna wide glide foot brake light brake light hand brake does not replaced lever wherte is the brake switch


The front brake switch is located inside the right handlebar control. It is a plunger type switch. The correct way to install a new one is to solder the wires on the new switch to existing wires from the old switch. Cut the wires about 2 inches or so from the old switch. Be careful when reinstalling the front lever or you may damage the plunger on the new switch.

I need to remove the rt.handlebar throttle grip and replace it. need some pictures.


If you want pictures, I'm afraid that you'll have to purchase a manual somewhere. This forum will only allow me to send a picture of 150Kb size. Replacing the throttle grips is not difficult.

First, loosen the locknuts on the throttle and idle cables at the twist grip. Adjust the adjuster barrel inwards all the way getting as much slack as possible. Now, loosen the bolts holding the front master cylinder onto the handlebars and slide it towards the center of the bars just a bit. Remove the two bolts that hold the right handlebar switch housing together. Carefully lift the top portion of the switch housing and move it towards the front of the bike exposing the throttle twist grip. Work each of the cables out of the nylon wheel of the twist grip. Do not loose the barrels that go on the ends of each cable. Once you have the cables loose from the wheel, lower the lower switch housing and remove the right grip from the handlebar.

Now, take the new grip and apply a coating of white lithium grease to the wheel part and the inside of the throttle sleeve in the grip. Put a coating of grease on the handlebar end where the sleeve rides as well. Slide the throttle sleeve and grip onto the handlebars. Bring the lower switch half up and reconnect the cables to the throttle wheel. Carefully reposition the top half to the switch housing and make sure that no wires are being pinched. Install the two bolts but don't tighten. Slide the throttle grip all the way up on the handlebars and then back off about a 1/4" or so. Tighten the two bolts. Now, adjust the two cables to where they each have just a bit of slack. Turn the throttle grip to the wide open position and release it. The throttle should snap shut. If not, work with it until you get it to where it does. Once operating properly, reposition the front brake master cylinder.

Make sure your throttle operates properly. An improperly operating throttle control can cause lose of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death.

Good Luck

2006 fxdwg break light stays on whether breaks are in use or not happen whether bike is running or not. Dont know what the problem is all other lights function correctly


Ok the problem is probably in the front brake light switch. Loosen the bolts that hold the front master cylinder on the handlebars and slide the assembly as close to the right handlebar switch housing as possible. If this does not put the light out, then your front brake light switch is probably defective and needs replacing.

Good Luck

Changing grips. Any suggestions or warnings, expecially on the throttle side? 2006 HD Dyna Street Bob


Usually when you change the grips on the throttle side, depending on what type of replacement grips you bought, you'll be replacing the throttle sleeve as well. This means that you will be messing with the throttle and idle cables.

Loosen both cables at the adjusters as loose as they will go. Then, remove the two bolts that hold the right hand switch housing together. Carefully seperate the two halves. Do not damage the wires going to the switch. Work the throttle cable and the idle cable out of there slots in the throttle sleeve of the old grip. Be careful not to loose the brass ferrel that goes over the cable end. Lubricate the inside of the new throttle sleeve, the handlebar, and the area where the cables hook up with white lithium grease. Reassemble cables into new sleeve and reassemble the switch housing.

Once you have everything back together, adjust the throttle cable first and leave just a bit of slack in the cable. You should be able to freely "rock the throttle grip" before you feel the cable tighten up, Just a bit. Then adjust the idle cable about the same way.

Now, Turn the throttle cable to Wide Open throttle position and release it. It should "snap" shut, do this again from half and quarter throttle to make sure it works as it should. Failure to insure that the throttle operates properly can cause serious injury or death.

If you are simply replacing a grip on each side of the handlebar, use a long slender blade screwdriver or an ice pick to slide between the handlebar and the grip. Spray some WD40 in the work the grip a bit and it will break loose. Clean the throttle sleeve and handlebar off alcohol. Now, some people like to use "Grip Glue" on the new grips. Put the glue inside the grip and slide it up on the handlebar. If you put the glue on the handlebar, it will roll up in front of the grip as you slide it on to the handlebar or throttle sleeve. Make sure you "align" the two grips so they look the same before the glue sets.

Good Luck
