    New "twist" on Aftermarket Bars ODI

    I hate the Yamaha grips so I changed to my favorite, ODI Rouge clamp-on's, and kept the oem trim.

    I did something simular but made it were the grip twisted and locked into the trim mech.. Clamp still goes on the end of the bars.

    Parts:
    ProTaper - ATV Mid bars (#2109D 02-5256)
    ODI Grips - Rouge clamp-on (90mm “grip-shift” Left and 130mm Right)

    Trim Prep:
    Locate the first rib on the grip. Cut it off there with a hacksaw.
    Remove the two nubs from the on/off and throttle with a small, course barrel in a dremel-tool.

    Bar Prep:
    On the port side remove the raised tread and paint to 7” and sand smooth the area the trim occupies (3.5” up from bar end to 6.7” up).

    Feed the trim onto the bars and mount them loosely. Attach the left grip then locate a comfortable trim position and punch the bolt-hole center. Remove bars and place in a vice (using the lower bar mounts) with the punch up.

    Drill a pilot hole straight through the bars. Drill the underside of bars to 9/32”. Going through this hole, drill the top to 13/64”. Again, going through the first hole, tap the top hole to 6M x 1.00.

    That's cool and looks clean. Have you ridden it since? is it alot harder to work the trim when your under power? I know your not supposed to, but we all do

    so you cut notches in the trim piece, so that the nubs on the ODI grips would fit/latch on to the grip? So that then the grip would move as 1 with the trim? how much did you have to sand off your handlebars for the grips to slide like that?

    Raising the dead....


    For the time being I'm keeping OEM grips and just swapping to the Protaper ATV Mid bars. All I should have to do is this?

    Bar Prep:
    On the port side remove the raised tread and paint to 7” and sand smooth the area the trim occupies (3.5” up from bar end to 6.7” up).


    Feed the trim onto the bars and mount them loosely. Attach the left grip then locate a comfortable trim position and punch the bolt-hole center. Remove bars and place in a vice (using the lower bar mounts) with the punch up.


    Drill a pilot hole straight through the bars. Drill the underside of bars to 9/32”. Going through this hole, drill the top to 13/64”. Again, going through the first hole, tap the top hole to 6M x 1.00.
