New Grips

Just got some new ISO Grips, and boy are they nice. For those that have these, what was done for the throttle grip? was the end cut off? Did these fit over stock plastic throttle? Any help would be nice.

if your new grips are for 7/8" bars, they will fit perfectly. you will have to cut the tabs off the throttle sleeve that held the stock grip, so your new grips will slide all the way on. just be extremely careful not to break the sleeve. when i did mine, i just used a sharp knife and shaved them off. post some pics when you get them on.

I would like to see the throttle tube before putting the grip on. I have read many descriptions of removing and putting grips on, and have a "minds eye view" of what the throttle tube looks like, but have never seen one "in the round" , so to speak, or even a picture. Anyone have a pic?
It doesn`t even have to be a vn750, just a generic picture. Thanks.

Just cut off the tabs carefully and slide the grip on. I did not have to use glue on mine, it holds nice and tight and never gave me a problem.

You can file or sand them off too..(safer than using a knife).. I just took mine to a bench grinder.

I have one sitting in the garage somewhere...if I can find it I will post a photo for you OlHoss.

Don't know how to tell you this but your gauges look messed up and I think your gas tank is missing.

And are those clamp on mirrors??? You steal them off some kids bicycle?














Just yanking your chain...........the grips look nice.
