I'm mechanically knowledgeable enough to be dangerous. I just don't wont to screw stuff up either.

Anyone have steps on changing the grips? More importantly, the throttle grip side?
Easy,

1) Remove bar Ends
2) Cut old gips using a Razor/Box cutter and remove
3) Coat the inside of the new grips with hair spray (this will allow you to slide the grips on and when it dries its will stick to the bar or throttle tube)
4) Slide the grips on and adjust
5) Safety wire grips if desired
6) repeat steps for the otherside

The throttle side is a little bit more difficult because you have to slip it over the Tube lip.

Should take about 5-10 min

With a little bit of search you will find somebody on this forum that makes 2 kilo lead bar ends.

Exactly what i do.

For the hairspray, i recommend some of the thick shit (like Agua Net).

Actually an air compressor makes quick removal and replacement of the grips pretty easy.

I have a set of those Drivens sitting in the garage. Tried them on another Duc and hated how right where you often need grip...is a smooth metal surface-

I have the D3 Driven grips. There's definitely less grip surface so it is a tad tricky gettin used to and definitely not ideal for any serious hard core riding. I got it for looks alone but I will probably end up switchin to progrip 717 black/blue.

So, no glue inside the grips so they stick when you slide them on???

Forget the hairspray. Use contact cleaner/brake cleaner (something you should already have in your toolbox). Spray inside the grip. Position grip at end of bar. Hold your palm over the open end of the grip and give a firm push.
Grip will slide on easily. Wait 30 seconds and cleaner will evaporate and bond grip to bar/throttle barrel. Safety wire if desired. Done.
Thanks from Styler
