So I put new grips and handlebars on the ol Dizzer and had quite the time removing the pos stock grip from the throttle tube. I know some people have complained about how much it sucks getting the grip off, and I ran into the same problem. Suzuki must of used some amazing adhesive when putting the grip on the throttle tube or they were never meant to come off in the first place, either way I got them off. After 20 minutes of cussing and using a screwdriver and scraping the remainder off with a knife I finally got most of the grip off. Wow did that suck!

Oh and in before "Cool story bro."

Het, it's better than having a spinny-grip. That'll aggravate you. I usually can get them off with a razor. But I use silver spraypaint and safety wire to hold them on.

Yea, true. I didn't even use any grip glue or other stuff to stick my new pillow tops on. There was still a bunch of rubber left on the tube for the new grips to stick to. :lol:

I read about this, and wasn't about to go through the cussing and effort. Picked up a Zeta tube from Forrest at Wheeling for $7, well worth it. Props to you for being persistent though.

Yea, I considered just ordering a new tube, but didn't feel like waiting. I'm a cheapass too. :lol:
