    Default Kuryakyn Grips

    Did anyone run into any trouble installing these? It seems that the throttle grip has something stopping it from going all the way in. I'm having trouble getting enough slack on the brake side cable to make the install work. Help!

    Some of them have a little drip of rubber or glue at the end from manufacturing. You have to get that out.

    Lol ,only because one fell out when I took them out of the packet and I realised they were for a smaller width so I took the other one out and fortunately this happened before I glued them as I did a dry run first anyway to ensure I knew what I was doing before gluing

    Just wanted to share a tip on fitting the Kuryakyn ISO Hand Grips on the Boulevard M Series!

    Since the throttle cable is very tight I found loosening / removing what I could from the handle bars & then removing them so I could move them to the left & then slide the throttle side grip on (already wired up) - to be so much easier than trying to stretch the trotter cable around the grip & risk breaking something!

    Worked for me!

    There are many threads in different forums on this site on this subject going back some years. I've recently fitted these grips (Kuryakyn part no 6235) on my 2014 M90, and found the most comprehensive guidance was in "Kuryakyn Grip Install" in the "How to Step by Step" forum. This is a very easy job if you follow the guidance given, and benefit from other members experiences. For me, the main tips were: do the throttle side first, and slacken off the throttle cables. For the clutch side, dry fit the grip before applying glue.

    I ended up using the glue provided, and like everyone else, did not use the spacer. I don't regret installing the mod, but it is not a night and day improvement. The pressure on your fingers is now focussed on the 'nobbles' and not equally distributed on the grip as per the oem fit. Maybe I'll get used to it.

    Regards

    So I just picked up the ISO grips for my 2009 M90 and they are #6240. Will these work, or should I o back and get the #6235's? When I ordered them I asked for the ones for the M90 and they gave me the universal ones. I'm a little ticked off about it.

    I would make them send you the 6235 . I put them on mine as well. I also did the full ISO changeover with Pegs, Shifter cover , brake cover and throttle boss. I ordered from Canada's Motorcycle and received excellent prices, service and free shipping. I would have ordered from a site sponsor however the dollar exchange , shipping, and taxes would kill it. you can see the change here https://www.m109riders.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=306890

    I used universal ones. I'd rather use oem throttle tube as aftermarket ones known to break. To 20 minutes n two beers with a file to get smooth. No regrets
