Any idea when the blue levers will be available? Or can I order it now as Titanium but request blue?
Those are Renthals. I run firm compound. $14 at any Cycle Gear or eBay.Nice! What kind of grips are you using? I really like the look of those, and they probably feel great.
Thanks, vercify. As Bird mentioned, the grips are Renthals. They feel great - nice and sticky. It also complements the gray on the bike really well. A nice upgrade from stock.Nice! What kind of grips are you using? I really like the look of those, and they probably feel great.
Thanks Bird, they look and feel great. Stock clutch lever was too far out for my liking.Those are Renthals. I run firm compound. $14 at any Cycle Gear or eBay.
Those 3/4 levers look great installed.
Sweeeet, I may replace the throttle tube. The long stock throttle throw results in lots of mismatched revs when downshifting. I feel like I have to blip with my entire arm, and throw some shoulder action in as well, especially when matching at the upper rev range.That reminds me of some really handy information...
The left side grip is MEGA glued on, and has always had to be cut off when I've done this install...AND....the throttle grip can't be easily replaced because it has a bunch of texture molded plastic on the outside. So I forgot, before you do this install, I recommend you either order a replacement OEM left side grip, so it matches the throttle grip and don't even bother removing the left side one from the OEM bars, OR replace the throttle tube with an R6 throttle tube at the same time. The R6 throttle tube shortens the throw, which is awesome, but it also is smooth and will accept standard grips, so you can put whatever new grips you like on both sides.
