    Exclamation Aftermarket Bars With Trim ?

    Hey guys I'm having a little trouble installing the stock trim lever onto the RIVA handlebars. There is no where in the instructions on how to install stock trim system onto aftermarket bars. It might work with stock grips but with the aftermarket grips they don't work. They just won't slide on, or disassemble to reassemble on the aftermarket bars. The trim system is a whole bar connected. Any help appreciated. Thank You !

    There is a bolt that goes through the bars. You also need to sand down the knurls on the new bars.

    Yes the grip installs on the rotating trim piece.

    I think the problem is that the new grips don't fit the VTS, not the VTS not fitting on the handlebar. I'm curious myself, as I plan on doing this eventually.
