    300X Loose Handlebar Grips

    Hey guys,

    Want to thank everyone for the great input on this forum.

    I have a 2011 300x and my left grip on the handlebar has completely loosened up to the point where it is not fun to ride/dangerous. Completely slips/rotates freely. I drilled a small Pilot Hole in the middle to put some glue and rotate throughout it. For a quick fix i used super glue and gorilla glue, none of which were successful only for the day it worked. That is what I had on hand. Does anyone have a solution for this? I have over 140 Hours on my Ski replaced the belt as it shredded on me and rebuilt the pump. Input is greatly Appreciated. Thank you!

    I saw that post before. Is there any type of adhesive required with the lock-on style grip? If so what adhesive? I also do not look forward to hacksaw the end of the bars in order to remove the stock grips because I feel it may shorten the bars too much where my hand will be falling off the end of the bar. Any other alternatives?

    You have to Cut only the End Caps out from the Handlebar. It is very easy. I do this Job before 3 Weeks on my 300X and Put some O.D.I on it, it Looks Great !

    none. Grip lock cement is moot for locked on ODI and causes a headache when you go to replace the grips, and you will replace them.

    There's no adhesive needed as it's secured with the lock on rings.
    Step one - cut old grips off with razor blade
    Step two - cut small metal disc from end of bar as close to end as possible and file smooth
    Step Three - put new grips on by tightening metal rings with Allen key

    I keep the list of "to do ski mods on my fridge door" as it keeps me focused and on track and it's a lot better than looking at say
    : mow lawns
    paint house etc

    Haha I will. Just not sure when ill get to it. This weather in NJ is freezing! Needs to warm up. Im guessing i will have to shift the throttle and start/stop/trim box to get the grips to fit?
