LOLOLOL!!!!!

Fred, what can I say. You're talking to the guy that originally had
his radio hooked to the headlights. Just call me Chef Ting cause I am
that butcher!!! LOL.

The reason I didn't bother making it all nice and neat is because
those grips are going to be replaced very soon. I did pull my grips away from
the housing originally, but it still would bind and stick, even with the plastic
ring. Therefore, out comes the utility knife and use the force Luke. Whack Whack
Whack. That takes care of that.

    Brian, You want a Vista Cruise # MCVICO You carefully cut a slot in the end of the bar cover for the eab to slip in. I drilled 3 or 4 small holes in a row and then carefully filed the slot open so the tab just slid in without sticking but

      Alternatively, you can cut the tab off, file it down, and just screw it to the end of the bar cover... which is what I did with mine, as there was already a hole attempted for it. :p Either way, you're gonna have to mutilate the bar cover to

            To get the Vista Cruise on you need to pull the grip away from the housing just a little so the Vista has room to sit. When you do that the grip is kind of tight against the bar end so I trim the end off just a little bit so the grip snaps ba

                Without those stock grips you'll never be able to sell your bike as "original". Forget about the big bucks on resale!.....I trimmed back the grip ring on the end by the weight, its more comfortable without it anyway. --- In

      Here's my Freebie solution - the throttle wedge. http://tinyurl.com/3kaajgg It is a piece of rubber bungee strap, shaped to wedge in between the throttle and the plastic handlebar housing.
