wa1200lt said:I also installed the grip puppies over the existing grips. However, they have lost their ............GRIP. The throttle side wants to spin which is a pain. I have tried several adhesives, double sided tape etc. but it only lasts a few days and all the love is gone again.
My next plan is to use Gorilla Glue. I think most of the problem is I used soapy water to install them and we have had nothing but rain since the week before forever ago.
I like them and will eventually get them to work or the sun will shine for 2 days in a row and all will be healed.
Do NOT order the large size Grip Puppies, order the smaller size.
How difficult is it to remove the grips without damaging the heating elements underneath?I installed these last month over the heated elements and they work great.
Just use a sharp knife and gently, slowly, cut the old grips starting at the inside (toward the center of the bike) then when you think you are almost down to the heater element start pulling the rubber apart with your hands. Cut a little more, pull a little more working down toward the end of the bar until they peel off. Be patient and gentle and you can get them off without damage to the heater element.How difficult is it to remove the grips without damaging the heating elements underneath?
