My new grips where blocking my clutch lever from going all the way in so I could not start my bike in gear ,had to rotate the grip so clutch would engage. :!:

Thank you for that. I don't think I've ever seen a grip that could interfere with a clutch lever.

I know it sounds out there but I read on hear about it and that's how I knew what to do ,the rubber on the ISO grips would not let the grip move all the way in.

The micro switches on the clutch lever should close (make contact) long before the lever is pulled in to the grip... Within the first 1/3 of the lever travel the switch should be disengaged... I'm thinking you have aftermarket levers on your bike that don't have proper positioning of the tab that operates the micro switches...

They look like factory levers to me but you could be right.

Is the bushing worn ??? If so, they are replaceable...
