It`s not so much as "What I did " more a case of "what I`m trying to do".... Fit a Kuryakyn ISO grip to the throttle roller.
I`ve watched Steve Saunders video on You Tube and his slid on easily. Mine is around 2mm too small across the grip hole, and much too tight to just slide on.
Somebody suggested soaking the grip in hot water and applying hairspray to the roller. I did that but it still wouldn`t slide on.
The rubber just gets caught up and pushes out of the grip holes;
Steve Saunders says that if it`s too tight, trim the rubber with a long bladed knife. It`s a lot of rubber to remove, and you just know that I`m not going to get a clean cut all through.
Kuryakyn suggest that I trim the roller. It`s plastic ! That would weaken the roller and I can`t see that that is a safe option.
I`ve wondered about the possibility of reaming out the rubber, but am concerned about how it would react seeing as it`s actually 2 halves.
So what I did today, was to get very frustrated.
