Greetings,

Botched up the install of the throttle side.

Anybody know of a way to remove the grips so they can be re-used? I used the Kury Super Glue when installing.

Thanks.

Rick,

I did the same thing. What worked for me was to squirt a generous amount of WD40 under the grip and wait several minutes to allow it to "work." It actually helps weaken the super glue. Then I CAREFULLY worked in a small, flat head screwdriver in, under the rubber pads. You can actually lift up the edge of each of the pads through the cutouts in the chromed aluminum grip. Then work the screwdriver side to side to break up the glue. It takes some time, and you have to be very careful so as not to damage to rubber pads, but it does work. Saves using a hand grinder to destroy the grips and having to spend another $60.00 to replace them. Good luck.
