Seriously outdid myself this time ! just got Kuryakn grips delivered today. After watching a Youtube video job seemed perfunctory enough for even myself to attempt.The left side grip went on just fine. I did a test run on the throttle side grip and everything slid on nicely. I then put the glue on and when I tried to slip it on it got stuck half way....would not budge. I tugged and tugged and eventually resorted to a hammer. Resulted in grip coming off but shattering the plastic inner liner of the grip. There is a piece of broken plastic still inside the housing, which seems to control the throttle. What the heck can I do to fix this ? can't even ride the bike up a ramp into a truck to take to dealer to fix.
Pic of broken plastic piece attached. Cant believe this.

Thanks mate-I tried opening the switch housing but only find 1 x Philipps screw-can't take the thing off. Any pointers-it a 2003 GL1800 ?

You will have to replace the throttle tube. Open the switch and loosen cable adjustment

There is a screw at the outer front and 1 at the inner rear of the housing then a screw and clamp that holds the upper part to the handlebar visible after you pull the lower part down.

I'm assuming so..can't locate the second one ( 1st is obvious as it shows clearly)
The screws are diagonal from one another.
On my Gold Wing, I have heated grips so there is an electrical cable in the way and partially hiding the outer most screw.

To remove a set of Kuryakyn grips I hated … they were part metal with rubber sticking out in places in a pattern … I used a Dremel with a cutoff wheel to split the grips metal, then they slipped off. I liked the foam types.
