Does anybody know how to remove the left side hand grip. It's glued on and I
would like a way to remove it without damaging the grip.

I installed new ISO grips on mine. The instructions tell you to remove
the screw at the base and then use a utility knife to cut along the
handlebar. I was actually surprised to find out that it was kept in place
by very little glue.

I can't imagine that you can remove the left grip without damaging it.
One option may be to cut a straight line along the grip and then peel it
off but I don't know how well it will hold when you try to glue it back.

HTH,

A.G.

On my Roadstar I removed the end cap and then started working the rubber
back and forth starting at the end of the handlebar. It only took about 15
minutes total moving about a 1/4 inch at a time. I did have to use a pair of
pliers with the jaws wrapped in a rag for the last bit near the inside end.

Much luck!

Thanks for the info. My new grips will be arriving later this week. I can't
wait to install them!
