Default Had to ream out my throttle side isogrip today

The throttle should snap back after installing iso grips. I donít mean to be insulting by stating the obvious... I googled this problem and saw on another forum for other bikes that some people stated their throttles were slow to return after installing new grips, but they could live with it.

I put on iso grips today; part no. 6235 is listed at the kuyrakyn website as the correct part. I believe they are the same as victory comfort grips. Anyway, the throttle grip did not fit loosely over the handlebar like it is supposed to, and the throttle would not snap back. I put the stock grip back on, which still worked fine, and then tried again, thinking I may have snagged a cable. Then I noticed without the cables attached, how tight the iso grip was and how loose the stock grip was in comparison. So it was obvious I had to make the new grip bigger, so the throttle would snap back again.

A dremel drum sander attachment, a big half round file worked in and out, and sandpaper wrapped around the file made short work of what appeared to be some kind of seam inside there, about an inch from the end cap. Works great now, but I didnít think I should have to do that. I saw a guy in a how-to video install his grips in a couple minutes. I donít want to say how long it took me.

Sorry you had such troubles. My black ISO grips gave no such issues.

Glad you got it worked out tho

I'll be replacing mine. Not comfortable on long rides over 100 miles. The rubber pillows (as I call them) dig into my hands thru my gloves. Plus I don't like the added diameter.

As an aside....

It's funny how you don't often hear word term "reaming out" used in it's original meaning, in most conversations. So when I read your title, I pictured some dude standing in his garage screaming at his throttle grip

Avon grips...Noemtz sells them. I put a pair on mine and they are way more comfortable than the ISO's!!
