peterd10r Honestly it will give you a feeling of fark!dont think as you will what your brain,hand are use to!everything happens a little bit different to oem throttle!take your time for 5-10 minutes to recalibrate your throttle hand and where the berries come on a lot quicker than before!I stalled the bitch twice like a novice and after that my Nuviz speakers on gps kept giving me warnings I was over the speed limit!Im going to turn that pesky bitch off

Diescrap95 Well I finally got the tube, install went well since the throttle tube end can be popped out. Its about the same fit with the Motion pro tube, Although with this tube you will need some grip glue since it so slick you can just pop the grips kinda easy. Got everything back in in half an hour, adjusted the cables and it seems fine. I'll wait a day or 2 so I can test drive it.

Super easy man! No tutorial necessary; all you need is a few tools. If you're handy, its a good way to save a few bucks without having to go OEM. I'm pretty handy especially with bikes so this seriously from start to finish this job took no more than 20 minutes!
Tools: vise, drill, sandpaper, screw driver, air compressor, lithium grease (or some kind of thin lube)
Steps:
1: Remove OEM bar-end weight (it's loctited on there so don't worry it will come off with the correct hex head & a little muscle)
2: Remove OEM grip with air compressor (see YouTube for how-to if necessary), comes off in seconds.
3: Unscrew/dissemble throttle cable case on handlebar
4: Remove OEM throttle tube
5: Drill out one end of Motion Pro throttle tube
6: Clean up drilled end of throttle tube (when drilling, the heat generated tends to cause the plastic to gum up, this will prevent the tube from sliding on the handlebars smoothly. Sand or file the inside of the throttle tube until you can easily slide it all the way on your bar.)
7: Lube the inside of the throttle tube after you've verified it will slide freely on the bar
8: Slide on tube and re-install throttle cable case
9: Re-install OEM or replacement grip with air compressor (ensure your new throttle tube is free of any lube on the outside)
10: Adjust cables accordingly

If you really need a video, just let me know and I can upload one for you lol. I won't be able to do 100% of everything since all the work is done but I can visually show you the steps.

As you can see from the amazon images it will require some modification. One of the ends needs to be drilled out, so if you've got a drill or drill press and a vise you'll have this thing drilled out in a matter of seconds. Make sure you use white lithium grease or something to lube the inside up as well. NOTE: you will need to smooth out the drilled end with sand paper because the drilling heats of the nylon enough to gum up that end. You'll know how much you need to sand because it won't be able to slide completely on the bar till it's smooth.
