    Question How do you remove ultra 150 handlebar grips...???

    They must have like a rim around the outside, they are on there tight. They are fine, but a little dirty (and acetone won't bring them clean). Thus, i was thinking of just replacing them with gel grips as I've done with all my ski's.. is it even possible?

    If not, what do you guys recommend for cleaning the black stains on the rubber?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jared

    Jared,

    I am not sure if the Ultra is the same as my '95 900zxi but my zxi does have a lip on the outer edge of the bar.

    I found this out the hard way. My grips were black like yours so I ordered a set of gel grip from a vender on ebay. They said that they fit ALL Kawasaki jet skis. So I took a razor blade and cut off the old grips, only to find out that the new grips did not have the end hollowed out for the lip. I was pissed! I had to cut the end off of the new grips to get them on. So now you can see the end of the handle bars.

    Just a heads up.

    Well, the old grips won't budge, I think there is a lip, I'm almost positive, but I've done no cutting thus far. So, how "ARE" you supposed to replace them? (or clean them up?) They are just stained from dirty hands... what will clean them? (remember I've tried acetone and it didn't work.)

    And, if new grips can be fitted... how?

    The old grips are glued on. I had to cut them off with a razor blade and it was not easy. It's raining here right now but if it dries up I will takes some pictures and post them.

    As far as cleaning them, I am not sure if there is anything that will work. Mine were mildewed and nothing I tried would clean it off.

    For new grips, I am going to try my local Kawi dealer. I looked at the parts finder at Babbits, but they didn't show a part number for the grips.

    I think you have to cut the end of the bar off when installing aftermarket grips. I have stock ones on so I dont know for sure. Mine are black so it doesnt show gunk like the red ones. FYi later years are black.

    The UMI setup is custom for each ski. The bars prob will but not the hub.

    jtskier11 where on the right side of kansas are you at?
