Move controls slightly inboard to accomodate longer Oxford grips
Greetings Stromers -
I am installing Oxford Adventure grips, Barkbusters and a Kaoko throttle lock on my 2016 DL650. I pulled the left stock grip off last night and noticed it is about 1/4" shorter than the Oxford grip. I'm sh#t w/ an exacto knive and don't really want to trim the Oxford grip. It seems obviously okay, but is there any reason not to loosen the left switch assembly (and mirror if nesc) and move it slightly inboard to accommodate the longer grip? Same thing for the right side, moving the brake assembly slightly inboard? The switch and brake assembly halves are held together using a phillips head screw or bolt. Are they locktited?
Thank you. This is a great website.
