This is a long time "slick"trick I learned when replacing the rubber tines on our industrial lawnsweepers.



Any rubber parts that are tight fitting such as carb runners on a GL1000 or handle bar grips are easly removed and installed, if you lift the rubber and spray brake clean under it. YES I said brake clean.

I have been doing this for many years now and it is the very best way to remove and install rubber parts. Today I removed my intake runners from my 75 GL1000 and polished the dickens out of them and the carb domes. they shine like chrome WOW !

Sprayed them with brake clean and they slide off easly and back on even easier.



Give it a try, and you will never use silicone again, The nice thing about brake clean is, in a few minutes it is dry , with no residue. silicone leaves a residue.:stumped:

And I put my new grips on the same way, without any glues. once the brake clean dries the rubber is so clean it will not move.:claps:
