*sigh*.... They are metal. They were put on forever ago by someone else. I had to use a hacksaw on the clutch side. (I was replacing the old handlebars, too.) They were bent from repeated drops before I got it and were like ape hangers! Needless to say that the grips have seen better days, too.
Anyway, I wanted to update the throttle side. I can get the grips off of the handlebars... I just can't get the throttle tube off of the grip... Suggestions would be WD 40, prayer, a screw driver, and an air hose?
How do I replace the tube if I break it? My local Kawi Shop says they can only get me a whole assembly when I would just need the throttle tube. I don't want to pay $40 for an $8 part. With regards to the throttle... Is it two cables, just a return cable, a spring, what? How does the throttle return to idle position? Are there any universal throttle sleeves that work for our bike?
Thanks guys! Merry Christmas or eqivalent! Sorry, I was trying to be politically correct.
