Rizoma Grip HELP! Stuck.
Well, I've got myself into a pickle.
Yes, I tried heating with a blow-dryer.
Had a terrible time stuffing my Rizoma grip left side onto the bar. These are the Lux grips on a 675R.
I lubed the bar with Dow33 and started tapping on the grip with a mallet. I quickly achieved sliding the grip on about 60% and came to a dead stop.
Heating with a hair dryer has not moved the grip and I don't dare smack any harder with the mallet.
Heat gun? Anyone else figure this out?
If it's stuck forever, I'm going to email Motovation and Rizoma and see if they'll comp me a new left side and give it another go. This isn't looking good. I have resolved to accept the loss, cut this garbage off, and call it a lesson.
"Need" is not a word to be associated with owning a motorcycle.
"Need" is a word to describe the desire to ride.
