Grip intstall

Does anyone know how difficult it is to change grip on an 09 RG with TBW?

Slide off slide on, use a skinny screw driver in the left one to loosen it if need be.

hardest part is probably going to be not losing the screws and taking off the clutch side grip (b/c it's glued).

I thought that the new left grip is now a "Slip On" grip. The older ones were glued on the handlebar.

It may just appear glued. Did you soak it in hot water.
I found that if you do, the grip will slip off.

If your question is regarding running the TBW internally, it can be a bit of a PITA. I have HeliBars so only a portion of the TBW is inside. There is a post on this forum by a member named Donk. I followed his instructions in his first post where the wiring was all external and it was a huge help. I think he has another post where he shows how to wire internally. If you're only installing grips it should be simple. You just have to make sure the grips you buy are designed for TBW and they'll practically install themselves.
