Yeah, but I think you meant "mirrors". I decided against them because first I didn't want additional wires streaming down the handlebars and second because the bike seemed visually unbalanced with the front signals removed from the forks and the rears in tact. I like the bullet style blinkers ... I'm keepin'em! Oh, look what else I ordered as a novelty item:QuacktheDuck said:looks like ur bike will be looking even better soon...take it from the pics u didn't get the signals with the integrated signals? Pics installed for sure!
Hopefully I'll get to install them Sunday. I'll post details when I'm done. :smile:The BeatKat said:Tell us about the install on those grips....easy? They're sweet looking and I bet they're comfortable...thanks
I'm going to attempt another try at it. Like you said, it's not the best quality (referring to the design of install). I do like the switchblade foot-pegs and think that now the brake pedal cover doesn't look too bad because of them. :smile:blitz said:... The shift lever I thought was just fine. It's not the best quality, it's just a cover, but I think it looks and works just fine.
The best way is first dry fitting and making sure that you angle the grips where you want them ... e.g. to get a visual. Remove, and then sand the handlebar so the glue (basically superglue) can adhere properly. Spread the glue evenly all around the roughened handlebar area; evenly but sparingly. As the glue is wet, it will provide adequate lubricating for you to slide on the new grips. Wrap your hands around the rubber part of the grip towards the inside (the area facing toward the center of the handlebar). Install by sliding it using one continuous motion without stopping. It's how I did mine and I had absolutely no problems. You just have to use care and act swiftly. It also helps to be somewhat of a perfectionist. ;-)The BeatKat said:Nick you have to use a lubricant of some type...I've heard of people using hairspray or water with a few drops of dish detergent in it and let dry after mounting....Zukidude and Blitz have done it...whats the proper way guys?
