twist throttle

okay, I am looking for "how to" advice/instructions on how to take my twist throttle of of my handlebars and put it onto new handlebars. I know everything else on the bars just un-bolts because I have been doing racing atvs with thumb throttles for years but somehow I have never done twist throttle. Usually you have to cut the old grip off and everything else transfers. How do you remove the twist throttle assembly correctly? Tell me how before i dig into it and mess some thing up Thanks,

Try searching for this info!

It will just unbolt and slide off. the grip, throttle tube and everything comes off as a whole. dig into it and once you see how its done you'll feel pretty odd having ever asked the question.

It actually comes off exactly like it would on a quad, just that you will have to slide it off the bar instead of lifting.

Check out www.919.org for all the how to topics you can handle.

I didn't mean that to sound degrading. Sorry! Sometimes I get in a hurry to post first in a thread before the post whore himself (barton) beats me to it. In my haste I tend to forgo emotion! Sorry!

Like I said, if you've done quads you'll be able to do this.

It's a simple process green...If you have access to shop air you can use that with a blow gun and force air underneath your grips and it will get them off. Everthing else just unbolts off.

The challenging part of it (and it's still simple) is drilling your new holes for the dowl pins of your throttle and switches.

Everything just transfers over to your new bars...Hair spray works well to slip on your new grips and when the hair spray is dry, it acts like glue and holds them on.

from the renthal tutorial I read in the link above, it seem that you can grind the dowl pins off with a dremel tool and everything still works? I don't know about drilling into the bars.....I wonder if I found an air compressor if it would take the left grip off...it's on there pretty good. (I like the grips and I do not want to lose them)

IMHO drill the bars. Grinding the knubs is bad juju. IMHO
