... woo wee! 'em er bright!
After removing the grip you should see a small hole. You need to insert a special tool to depress a springloaded plastic clip. I had no idea where to find this special tool, so I just cut a small sliver of 1/8" aluminum flat bar about 5" long. I inserted the aluminum piece into the hole and lightly tapped it until it depressed the plastic piece and I was able to slide the switch assembly off.Looks great. I'm about to tackle something similar. I'm doing a dry run so to speak prior to selecting which bar ends and indicators, and the left hand switch is giving me fits. Like I'm going to tell my wife I love her, or kick my dog fits.
Ive taken off the bottom cover plate to the switch assembly and tried somewhat firmly to lever the top cover plate away to expose a set screw, lever any existing potential plastic tabs that fit into bar grooves and also looked inside the bar for any clues.
Can't find any videos or online schematics.
As you would probably expect, the airflow now hits my hands straight on, to my fingers/knuckles. I don't ride too much in the cold, but when I do I wear goretex gloves which do a better job of blocking the wind, versus the perforated leather gloves I normally wear. I personally have no regrets removing the handguards.How did the air flow over the grips change? The hand guards seem to funnel air over and down on my hands, hate it in the winter even with heated grips and winter gloves. Wondering if a change like this might make the air flow smoother less directed to the grip area.
