My Kuryakan Grips- FINALLY!!!

For my birthday, my wife’s family gave me the best gift- CASH!

They knew I wanted to buy something for the LT but didn’t know what I wanted. But I knew- a nice set of Iso Grips.

I had these on my Vulcan and really liked them.

 

On my last trip upstate, my hands started to cramp. The rubber grips on the LT were narrow and started to look worn.  I knew the iso grips were the solution.

 

The install was pretty straight forward- peel the rubber off, spray the handlebars and the iso grips with that super sticky adhesive- HAIR SPRAY!

 

It looks great!

There was a tiny space left over so as per the suggestions of fellow bmwlt.com board member, Silverbuffalo, I ran to the the hardware store and bought two 1” diameter O rings. Looks good!

The heated grips still work and the finished project looks awesome!
