Handlebar Grip Replacement
« on: April 21, 2017, 07:17:45 AM »
So after a minor squeeze a couple of months back, I'm sure my handlebars got slightly bent, so I'm replacing them. I'm also doing away with the OEM heaters (another discussion) which were fitted when I had the bike. What I didn't get was the original OEM grips to put back on.

So can I just buy any old set of 7/8" grips, or should I just plumb for the originals?

Looking at this parts schematic, the throttle side grip is different to the left, but many pairs I've seen online don't look like this.



I haven't got the new bars yet, hence I haven't disassembled the current handlebar and grips to see for myself.

Thanks
Wayne

the throttle side includes the plastic tube for the throttle cables to be mounted.

No spare rubbers have this bike specific item included.

If you need the pair i have a new one including the throttle tube here laying around but i dont know if shipping costs to the UK wont make those things expensive.

Thanks Dan. I'm going to try the stealer first as I think the originals should have been in the box of bits I got when I picked the bike up. But if not......

Thanks for the offer mate. I've ordered Renthal road bars to replace my bent one and the dealer came up trumps yesterday and gave me a pair of grips they had knocking around for nought!
