Hi All,
Well, finally done with the grips and cruise. All wired in and HOT! All was going according to plan, the throttle side went on perfectly, then the LH grip suddenly and PERMANENTLY stopped 1/8th" short of "home" :mad:. The company provides genuine SuperGlue to affix the grips and as you are aware, you only have split seconds to get it right. Oh well, I'll get over it. It's not that noticeable. The grips utilize a 5 amp ATC fuse (it came with a micro fuse holder but I cut it out in order to utilize my installed fuse box). I bought some longer rear brake lever mount screws and with some 3/4" spacers passing through two holes drilled into the bar cover, the supplied controller mount bracket is very solidly mounted and "factory looking". You may notice the Vista Cruise installed as well. That required the throttle tube flange to be ground away. It works just as I remembered from my old 1974 Honda 750 days...perfectly! :)

Don't recall myself, as I have half a dozen bikes that I do my own wrenching & farkling on... Is it possible to loosen the retaining screws to the LHS switchgear then when loose enough slide it to butt up against the grip? I could be wrong as I cannot recall if there are any handlebar tabs that any of the screws get threaded through...

These switchboxes, LH & RH are "keyed" to the bar. I slipped the piece of end rubber trimmed from the LH grip into the gap. The heated grips actually have internal tubes so there is no unsupported feeling at the end of the grip so, all is well.

I use Hot Grips, their instructions say to remove the grip after epoxying, wrap the grip with an insulation material and turn the grip on high to soften the glue. You might try it.
