  • Removing 2009 Sportster Handgrip

    Mornin all!

    I will be doing a handlebar swap in the next day or so and wondered if these was a trick to getting a left side 2009 grip off.

    Are the newer ones glued? Can it be taken off and reused?

    Thanks.

    use a small screwdriver to pry it a little loose, then use an air nozzle to shoot some air into the grip, should break it free

        Might have to work the S.D. around a bit but this method has always worked for Me.
        Might want to get one of the industry unaproved blow gunz so Yuh have a bit more pressure under the grip,I think I read somewheres that a bit of gasoline swabbed around the inside of the rubber will seal them back on without using goooopeygluuuuue.

              if your wires aren't run internally, here is another approach that has worked for me........ take the bars off the bike, and soak that side (grip and all) in a pan of hot water for about 15 minutes or so. the heat loosens the adhesive

                    when you go back together with the grip clean bars and grip then shoot a little hairspray on the bars and slide the grip on before it dries. clear paint works the same , just lay a towel over the tank/bike so to not get overspray on it.........................oh yea, yer bars are on their way, should be there tomorrow, sat at the latest... :-)

                        I used that 3m spray adhesive on mine...didn't work for shit, I've got some flat clear at home, I'll try that tomorrow.
                        It's not "derailed", as long as the last post relates to the post above it...it's just on a different rail, heading into a more interesting direction

                          gotta clean it up real good, i use alcohol and make sure there isn't any type of oil or water inside the bars.

                            just gotta watch the hair spray, if it gets any water on it before it dries it won't stick. but if its a dry application it will stick. mine always have.
