I hate it when this stuff happens. I pulled my Vulcan out to wash it after work tonight. I went to put it up on the center stand while standing on one side... mistake #1. I didn't quite make it and the bike went away from me as it came down off of the stand
Tipped over, but no damage and I put it up on the center stand properly.
Then I realized my left side hand grip was loose... I pulled pretty hard to keep the bike from falling hard and must have twisted it loose in the process. That was a good thing because I planned to start installing my heated grips tonight anyway
One less thing to fight with. It wasn't really glued in place, just some double sided tape holding it on anyway
After the bike is washed, I went to see if the right side grip was poorly installed as well and twisted it back against the throttle, it moved... but not in a good way. I sheared the plastic nub off inside of the kill switch housing that keeps the throttle in place on the handlebar
After a little bit of acetone and some gentle prying, I finally have the right side handgrip off. I guess that one was glued on very well
I'll have to check Bent Bike tomorrow night on my way home for a kill switch housing and the glue for my heated grips. I'm taking Thursday and Friday off of work to get this and a few other projects done before spring quarter starts on Monday.
