Then remove the right side fairing trim piece, starting at the bottom inner and working your way upwards. Unscrew the single Allen head bolt holding the lock panel in place and remove the panel. Now to remove the old grips. Tip; If you have chrome cap ends fitted, protect the chrome on the screw by putting some tape on the end of the screwdriver If you’re a cheapskate, and want to save the old grips, run a thin screwdriver or a hacksaw blade around the inside of the grip to loosen the old glue and it will come away easily. Repeat on the right side grip. The Honda instructions tell you to remove the whole throttle grip & boss but you don’t need to go to all that hassle of unscrewing the switch assembly to get at it. Just remove the rubber grip same as described for the left side After removing the switch panel from the Goldwing, drill a 45mm hole with a holesaw. The spot to drill is marked on the inside of the panel. Then just screw the controller knob assembly into position with the three screws provided (second picture) Spread some glue (the Honda stuff if you can get it, or just plain old rubber cement as I’ve used on my last four Goldwings without problems). Spread it more towards the ends and middle of the bar as it will get pushed inward as you push the grips on anyway
