It's supper easy use an Allen wrench to remove the bar end slider. but you have to hold the slider while loosening so that it doesn't just keep going around and around. move the rubber grommet thing off the housing by simply pushing it back onto the cables. then remove the two screws underneath the housing(i took this opportunity to put on new hand grips. putting the new ones on the tube before installing). see how the cable align on the OEM tube. take those off then take the new 1050 tube slide it on pace the cable on it and revers the steps before.

but leave the two screws on the housing a little loose so that you can adjust it because the grip will sometimes grip the bar end and thats not good. so just keep messing with it untill it no longer grips the bar end and looks good

tighten the two screws and in about 30 mins you've gotten way better throttle response.

It literally will take you no more than 10 min to do it, if that. Just make sure you don't strip the stupid phillips heads screws!!

theres a tread going on here about installing, one its dead easy, just make sure you have enough cable so that the throttle closes.

yeah, just did that 2 nights ago .....f'n kicking myself for using the wrong size phillips head screwdriver. I got the 1st one out fine, but the 2nd was being a stubborn *****.

Now I'm debating whether to try an ezout or something like that. How badly did you strip yours?!

Seriously easy mod. took maybe 10 minutes and I'm an idiot mechanically.

very fun mod though. makes the mono even easier than before.

i have a question to add... when you go to the dealership to buy the tube, does it come with the grip and is the grip the same as the daytona's?
