Question Kury Iso Grips that fit vn750 ?

Now that I have my Hwy Pegs, I'm looking for that accessory item that
really stands out on most bikes... Kury Iso Grips. Is there a model that
will fit Lena?

I used the ones for a Goldwing, They also have a 7/8 handelbar but they are longer and give you more room for your hand. Also if you add a throttle rocker it wont get in the way of your hand.
You will need to sand the right side down to fit the new grip.

Sounds like the right grip for the job. I was almost ready to order the Kury
7/8" Universal grip, but I would imagine that it would have to be sanded down to, and be somewhat short. Why only the right side gets sanded down? Am assuming that it's the metal bar that needs sanding?

The metal bar on the left side is a perfect fit, The plastic throttle on the right side has to be sanded down and the tabs removed. You will understand whan you get the rubber grip off. If you want to add a throttle lock now is the time to do that to. Added alot to long rides, gives you the ability to relax the right hand/wrist .
Here is a link to a wright up about installing them

Those are better instructions than on the Kury site. It looks very doable,
as long as I don't get sloppy with the glue.

Thanks CC

I actually didn't glue the right side. It fits so tight hasen't moved in 2 years.

Found Kury Iso Grips for GoldWings at WINGWORX.com a large Goldwing site
for $58, along with Stilletto ends for $35. The Stilletto ends will give Lena, sort of a "don't mess with me" or "bad" look. - LOL -

Now I can say Lena is part upper crust Goldwing.

I saw a set of helmet locks that I'm pretty sure were for the Kury grips.
They went on the ends of the grips inplace of the plug.
Looked pretty sharp.

I put some on recently and couldn't glue them either. Even after sanding and grinding down the plastic on the throttle it was very hard to get them on. The problem is when you'd twist it, the rubber would start to bunch up and come out of the grip. I finally got it on, it took quite a while. I took the end cap off and squirted some glue in that way. I stretched the throttle return cable in the process and had to adjust it a good bit afterwards to get the throttle to spring back like it should.

Thanks for the heads up DanL, will make sure I grind and sand down as far
as humanly possible.

Maybe CCspinner has some suggestion on how to avoid what happened to
you Dan?
