Default woodcraft lowering clip ons on ninja 250r

hey guys, can you pls help me on this: i bought the woodcraft ninja 250r clip ons, and don't have any idea on how to remove the throttle grip, do you have to remove the grip from the tube? or just slip it out? i am going to reuse the factory grips again. and another thing will the throttle response be effected when the cable is lowered? sorry if these are dumb questions but i am a newbee at these things, thx a lot

The whole tube comes off... you don't have to remove the throttle grip from the throttle tube.

The left grip you'll have to pull off and re-glue, though.

it should not. if it does make sure that you have routed the cable correctly.

Yeah, it works fine. We have them on my wife's bike. As noted above, though- you have to make sure the cable is routed properly.

As far as glue, any dealer should have it, but it's called GripGlue. Comes in a small tube and it's a buck. It's slippery when wet so you can easily slide the grip on there and position it, and then it dries up nicely. Most of the time they sell it for motocross bikes because they go through grips a LOT faster than on street bikes... but any dealer I've ever been in has it.

you shouldn't need grip glue at all. the grip should stay put on it's own.
you will want to find some compressed air or you'll never get that grip off.
I've never used grip glue. some guys say that hair spray is a great glue for problematic grips that don't stay tight.

and don't use any kind of lube on the throttle tube. it's very tempting but it will eventually gum up and make it stick. it works 100% better without anything
