    John,
    What did you used to grind down the twist grip?

    I used a razor blade to get the first layer of rubber off, then used a dremel with a sandpaper attachment to get right down to the pvc piece. By using the dremel, i was able to evenly cut down the area before sliding on the spider grip.

    You do have to drill a hole in the aftermarket bars so that the locking screw may go through from underneith towards the top. Pretty painless all around.

    hello, well abbott im in the process of mounting my handlebars they are pro taper but i got stuck at the trim part..when i took off the stock bars and i take the trim out there is a plastic piece attached to the trip and the grip..what do i do..do i take off the grip and slide it into the new handlebar? Also do i shave the screw down that goes through the handlebar or do i drill a hole through the bars? thanks

    you will have to drill a hole through your new bars. Remember that on the OEM Bars, the left grip (where the trim asmbly is) is not just a grip, its a whole mechanical working piece with plastic underneith the rubber --then the bar is below that. You want to slide the whole piece off the OEM bar, then razor blade through the rubber all the way down to the plastic. Once you get to the pastic all the way around, go ahead and use a dremle tool with a sander bit to level it all out.

    Also remember that the OEM piece (white plastic) will be shorter than most of your aftermarket grips. So you will have to slide the asmbly onto the new bars and go almost an inch "farther" than the end of the bar. What i mean is you will have some "new bar" hanging out from the stock asmbly, but just enough to cover the length of the new grip that will slide over.

    When putting the new grip on, use grip lock on the plastic trim piece only and be sure not to get any on the bar itself becuase you want the entire piece to pivot on the bar to lock in your trim positions. On the inch of grip that is left over, just use some marine grease at the bottom of your grip before sliding on to the plastic piece where the grip lock will be.

    Does this make sense??
