had an idea yesterday and gave it a whirl. if any of you have ever had cruisers, and replaced the stock grips with Kury's or whatever, this will make sense.
went shuffling through my stash of old unneeded MC parts and found two old throttle grips. The throttle side on those bikes is a sleeve with cable/retainer etc, covered by a gel/rubber/whatever grip. took it apart, slid a butter [dull] knife down the edge of the cover, put in a little veggie oil, and worked it all around. cut the part that was embedded under the cap [think circumcision], slid off. little oil on the strom, slid on.
length was near perfect. One BIG problem, they are different thicknesses! one came off a yamaha and the other a Honda. The honda one is much beefier. anyway, it works like a champ. right size now.
I just need to find a match for either/or!
If evolution is valid, why do I still bite my tongue occasionally?
