The right side handgrip is the throttle sleeve assembly and grip combined. To get it out, first, adjust both the throttle cable and the idle cable (both cable going into the throttle assembly) to give you as much slack as possible. Loosen the two bolts that hold the front brake master cylinder on and move the master cylinder towards the center of the handlebars just a bit. The remvove the two bolts that hold the right handlebar switch housing together. Carefully move the top half away. There are a lot of wires in this housing and you don't want to break or pinch any of them.

Now, you can see the round part of the throttle sleeve and where the cables connect to it. Each of the cables has a ferrel on the ball on the end of the cable. Do not lose these ferrels. Work each of the cables with the ferrell out of it's hole in the throttle sleeve. Lower the bottom half of the switch housing and remove the throttle sleeve from the handlebar.

Now, before installing the new sleeve, lubricate the handlebar, the inside of the throttle sleeve, and the round part where the cables go with white lithium grease. Slide the throttle sleeve back up on the handlebar and reverse you disassembly procedure to get it back together. Be very careful not to pinch any of the wires when you reassemble the swith housing. Once you have the housing together but before you tighten it down, slide the throttle grip toward the center of the handlebars until it stops and then back it off about a half inch or so then reposition the front brake master cylinder as close to the right switch houseing as possible and tighten all screws.

Adjust the throttle cable and the idle cable so that they each have just a bit of slack in them. Twist the throttle grip to the wide open throttle position (engine off of course) and let it go. The throttle should snap back to the idle position. If it doesn't, work with the throttle until it does.

Failure to insure the proper throttle operation could lead to a loss of control of the machine resulting in serious injury or death. This job MUST be done correctly.

Good Luck

How do i replace grips on 2009 electra glide ultra classic


For twist grip equipped motorcycles to remove the throttle or right side grip remove the upper and lower switch housing screws, loosen the upper screw securing the handlebar clamp to the master cylinder housing. Remove the lower clamp screw with flat washer, separate the upper and lower switch housings and remove the throttle grip from the end of the handlebar. (To remove the throttle grip, a slight tug may be necessary to release index pins in grip from receptacle in seal cap of twist
grip sensor.)

With throttle cables, to remove the throttle or right side grip slide the rubber boot off of each cable adjuster, loosen the jam nut on each adjuster, turn the adjusters in the direction that will shorten the cable housings to their minimum lengths. THEN remove the two screws and separate the upper housing from the lower housing, unhook the ferrules and cables from the throttle control grip and the lower housing, (remove friction spring, throttle friction screw and spring from the lower housing only if necessary), (only if and as necessary mark the position of the master cylinder assembly forward position and split line on the handle bars) (to be safe squeeze the front brake lever and place a 5-32 inch thick cardboard insert between brake lever and lever bracket and then release brake lever to hold the lever in this place to protect the brake switch from damage if the switch housing and the master cylinder get separated) (and only if and as necessary, loosen the two perch screws) move the lower switch housing as necessary and remove the grip.

To install the throttle grip apply a light coating of graphite to the handlebar and the inside surface of the upper and lower housings, (if removed, install the spring, throttle friction screw and friction spring in the lower housing) (and, if removed, attach the cable assemblies to the lower housing), (throttle control cable has a 5-16 inch fitting end and is positioned to the front of the lower housing. and the idle control cable has a 1-4 inch fitting end and is positioned to rear of lower housing. Install the throttle control grip over the end of the right handlebar, position the lower housing onto the right handlebar, engaging the lower housing with the throttle control grip, position the ferrules over the cable ball ends, seat the ferrules (with the cables attached) into their respective notches of the throttle control grip, install the upper housing over the right side handlebar and secure it to the lower housing with the appropriate two screws and hand tighten them, then align the brake master cylinder and perch assembly with the marks made prior to loosening them, and beginning with top screw, tighten the two screws to 108-132 inch lbs using a T27 TORX drive head and then tighten the upper and lower housing screws to 35-45 inch lbs. THEN point the front wheel straight ahead and WITH THE ENGINE OFF, adjust the throttle and idle cables by turning the adjuster in the direction that will lengthen the cables. Gently twist the throttle control grip to the fully open throttle position (fully counterclockwise) and hold it in this position and turn the throttle control cable adjuster counterclockwise until the throttle cam on the induction module (or carb) contacts the throttle cam stop, release the throttle control grip and turn the adjuster counterclockwise an additional 1-2 to 1 turn and tighten the jam nut on the throttle control cable adjuster. THEN turn the handlebars fully to the right and turn the adjuster on the idle control cable counterclockwise to lengthen the sleeve until the end of the cable housing just touches the spring within the cable guide. NOW check the adjustment by, with the throttle friction screw loosened, twisting and releasing the throttle control grip two or three times. The induction module throttle wheel must return to the idle position each time the throttle grip is released. If the throttle does not return to idle, turn the idle adjuster, shortening the cable sleeve until the correct adjustment is obtained, tighten the jam nut and slide the rubber boots over each cable adjuster. NEXT start the engine and with it idling turn the handlebars through their full range of travel and if the engine speed changes at all during this maneuver, adjust the control cables according to the foregoing procedure so that there is no change in the idle speed when the handlebars are rotated through their entire range of travel.


To remove the clutch or left side grip remove the two screws and separate the upper housing from the lower housing. Mark the forward position and clutch perch split line on the handlebars and then as necessary loosen the two clutch perch screws and move it out of the way so that you can access the grip end. If you want to save the grip take a small screwdriver with about an eight inch length and insert it into the grip, wiggling it to loosen the glue somewhat and then spray some brake kleen into the space under the grip where the screwdriver blade is inserted and wiggle and twist the screwdriver around to loosen the rest of the grip glue and pull the grip off. Sand down the handle bar area where the grip will rest and apply grip cement to the area and slip the grip on. If the left hand grip is patterned, align it with the pattern on the right hand grip with the throttle in the fully closed position, immediately push the grip completely onto the end of handlebar using a twisting motion. Do not hesitate when installing the grip or the adhesive may dry before installation is complete. Allow 6 to 8 hours to elapse at 70 degrees F to allow the adhesive to fully cure. If a newer non-glue grip is being installed slip it on with the flats properly oriented to fit with the switch housing halves when they are installed. Install the switch housing halves and lightly tighten the two screws and then orient the clutch perch to the previously made alignment marks and beginning with the top screw, tighten the screws to 108 - 132 inch lbs using a T27 drive head and then tighten the switch housing screws to 35-45 inch lbs.

How do i replace the hand grip on guardian red dot crutches?


I had the same problem, but i found an answer.
have a friend with 2 good feet help you with this.
Turn the crutch upside down and place armrest on the ground.
Stand on the outside edges of the armrest and pull crutch upward. The armrest is not glued to the rest of the unit. It's just a snug fit. Once the armrest is removed, the hand piece can be removed.
Now comes the struggle to remove the damaged rubber hand grip, and put the new one on, took me about 5 minutes to do this step.
Then reverse what you've done, put the hand grip back on the crutch, put the armrest back on, turn the crutch upside down, and push the armrest back into place.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to replace the grips on my 2006 Yamaha vstar 1100 custom. How do you loosen the throttle cables to remove right side grip?


If you are just replacing the grips, you may not need to touch the cables, the right grip fits over a plastic throttle sleeve, you generally just cut the old one off

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

The rod right hand side of tailgate is not attached


You should be able to feel around and locate that rod. After you get it you can use some pliers or vice grips to put on the rod to release the lock on that side and the handle on the other side.
As long as the locks and the rods move freely and are in good shape then all you will need is a new handle asm. It will come with new clips and on the other side of the tail-gate are 3 torque-head screws that will need to be removed to replace that handle.

How to replace right hand throttle grip 2003 ultra


Remove the switch housing screws and spread it away. Loosen the adjuster locknuts on the throttle cables and adjust cables in, this will allow you to lift the cable off of the throttle grip. Be care full not to lose the barrels.( the small round caps on the end of the cable.) Assembly is the reverse. Make sure to check proper operation of the throttle before starting the bike.
