LEFT GRIP REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION 1. See Figure 1. Using a T27 TORX® drive head, remove the two screws with flat washers securing the handlebar clamp (3) to the clutch lever bracket. Remove the clamp, and position the clutch hand lever assembly away from the handlebar. 2. Using a T25 TORX drive head, loosen but do not remove the upper and lower switch housing screws (1). 3. Remove the end cap from the existing left hand grip if so equipped. With “glueless” grip: Remove the grip from the han- dlebar. With glued grip: Remove the grip by carefully cutting it away from the handlebar using a sharp blade or knife. NOTE Make sure that the handlebar surface and the inside of the new grip are smooth, dry and thoroughly cleaned of all dirt or adhesive residue. Do not lubricate left handlebar grip before installation. Lubricating grip can cause it to come off while riding, which could result in loss of control and death or serious injury. (00315a) 4. Position the new left grip (4) so the larger diameter portion of the flange (5) is at the bottom. Push the grip fully onto the handlebar. 5. Fit the grooves (2) on the outboard side of the upper and lower switch housing over the flanges on the end of the grip, then loosely fasten the two screws. 6. Position the clutch hand lever assembly inboard of the switch housing assembly, engaging the tab on the lower switch housing in the groove at the bottom of the clutch lever bracket. 7. Align the holes in the handlebar clamp with those in the clutch lever bracket, and loosely fasten the two screws with flat washers. Adjust the switch housing and clutch hand control position for rider comfort. 8. Using a T27 TORX drive head, tighten first the upper, then the lower handlebar clamp screws to 60-80 in-lbs (6.8- 9.0 Nm). 9. Using a T25 TORX drive head, tighten first the lower, then the upper switch housing screws to 35-45 in-lbs (4.0-5.1 Nm)
