Installed a new BLACK set of Kuryakyn (Part #6345) grips today. Installation went pretty much as expected.

1. I found the dameter of the part that fits inside the right side controls is a bit larger than stock. Therefore the controls do not quite go back together properly. Some grounding of the hole in the controls is necessary.

2. Left side is glued on pretty good. Even with a compressor (weak one) I was not able to salvage the grip. I had to slice it off.

It turned out to be a bit more work than I expected, but the final product is worth it. Sorry for the crappy pics. Iphone is not so good in the dark.

I was able to get my wife's factory grips off her Stryler with no problems. It was a combination of long-ass screwdriver, WD-40 and compressed air. It took me about 2 minutes.

I put the same grips on mine. The old screw driver and wd40 took the stock grip right off, everything fit perfectly with the new grips...

I haven't put many clicks on since the install. I'm wondering if I'll notice the 2 pound weights on either side are gone. Lol. Those were some massive bar ends!

I was just going to ask how the feel was without the vibration dampers on there? It dosn't seem like it'd be too bad but please let me know after a long ride. My commute is about 90miles each way last thing I want is numb hands.

Those grips look to be very comfortable.
