Grips

Post by novatz »



Recently purchased the Kuryakyn ISO grips for wings with heated grips. These grips go over the top of the existing grip - apparently.

have read the two pages of instructions and made an attempt - no success. Lacking patience doesn't help.

Haven't reached out to Kuryakyn yet but question: has anyone installed these grips? Is there a secret I am missing?

The problem is merely putting them on in the first place. I am more interested in the looks and the throttle rocker versus the actual heat.

I had read several posts about the difficulty of installation. I got lucky for a change. I have had mine on and off several times with what I would consider routine effort. Some others I have seen have used hose clamps or small bar clamps to squeeze the two halves together. I had thought about getting some longer screws for installation and then switching back to the correct screws but wasn't necessary.

I did buy some longer screws for the ends as I have both the rockers and the bar end weights.
