Hm, good idea crazkene13 - now that you mention it, I think I remember reading that in another thread a while back... but, this is a way you can do it if you don't have an air compressor

Anyway, for the record, they are ProGrip #719. On their website: Grips->Super BK->Dual

anyone try the pro grip 725 EVO? It looks like it has the same dimension so I'm assuming it will fit correctly.

yep, pro grip 719's, I have them in blue. filing the out part of the right grip, hmmmm. great right up and worthy of a sticky.

I guess I will be the one to say it, let's see the person that goes with those hands.

to put the right grip on i boiled a pot of hot water and had a friend hold it close to the grip as i pulled the grip on. the steam from the pot of water made the grip softer and easyer to handle. total work time fifteen minutes, but i cut my old grips off.

anyone have any issues with the 719's seeming a little small on the throttle handle? it seems like I'm not going to be able to cover all of area with the new 719

How much smaller?

Other than cutting a circle out of the end of the grip, and having to trim away at the opening of the grip, you shouldn't have any other issues with them...
