Just installed these - The throttle side was really tight when I test fitted it but it did go on. I figured the glue would lubricate it a bit. I used the glue, got it halfway on and it seemed to get stuck so I used a lot of force and it went on - I was really relieved but I subsequently found that the throttle return was sticking. I'm not sure if the tight fit forced some glue in there or whether I used so much force I caused the problem that way. I removed the end cap, shot some WD40 in brom both ends and spent the next 1/2 hour twisting the throttle open and closed trying to loosen it up. It's to the point where it just needs a tiny bit of pressure to close it. Hopefully if I keep at it, it will close completely on it's own. - No jokes about "cruise control" please! Smile

If I had it to do over, due to the tightness of the Iso grip on the throttle side I would have just used soap and water to slide it on. If you do use the clue I recommend you disregard the instructions and apply the glue to the throttle sleeve rather than apply it into the grip. That way there would be next to no chance of it getting between the throttle sleeve and the bar

If it doesn't loosen up with continued twisting, I suppose I'll have to replace the throttle sleeve (and the grip) or perhaps I can remove the sleeve and get at it that way to try and fix it and be able to preserve the grip instead of destroying it in the process

So just a warning when people say they are super easy to install, in my case they weren't even though I was careful

I've installed 2 pair of these grips, and I didn't need to use the glue on either. On both sets, when I opened the glue tube, it was dried up and unusable. I found that the grips are tight enough without the glue.

Hairspray works best

On throttle side, I would take off-----using WD40 and real thin, long screwdriver.

Clean inside of grip with gas or brake cleaner------Gas on throttle barrel and in inner grip-----slide on quick, making sure you don't push on too far==binding.

I have never tried hair spray, but should work also.

Best is always cheap stock grips==right length.

you're probably right about the right side but the left side was not at all tight enough without glueing and I've also heard horror stories about grips coming off while riding

How tricky is it to remove the throttle sleeve to clean it? My thought is to slide the throttle sleeve (grip attached) off the bar, clean the bar and inside of the sleeve, then put the sleeve back on.To me this is preferable to trashing a new ISO grip (and I think it would be brutal to get it off). It looks like there is only one screw holding the top and bottom of the housing together but i'm a little leery that if I take it off, it will be hard to get it back together with everything working properly - kill, switch, start switch, etc. Anybody done this before?

Thanks

Thanks

I would somehow tilt the bike on it's side and take the end cap off, soak up to grip only in gasoline and let it soak overnite then twist off with rag

Thanks but if the problem is caused by glue between the sleeve and the bar, I don't see how just removing the grip will solve the problem, The sleeve will still bind when turned on the bar. I really think the only solution is to remove the sleeve, with the added benefit of not having to remove the grip.

When I needed to get a grip off a golf club without damaging it, I used a syringe. Fill with a solvent and inject at various points along the length of the grip, twisting the grip as you work. It will slide straight off. The tiny holes made by the needle are not seen.

Thanks. I guess I'm not doing a good job explaining this. Taking the grip off won't solve the problem if there is glue between the sleeve and the bar. I probably still need to remove the throttle sleeve so there should be no need to remove the grip first
