Was easy to install, I think I used some soapy water to remove the existing grips easily.
I also wanted to ask people who have them how do you guys like them?
I must say don't like them, I find them very firm and the pads are not actually acting as pads (because the grip diameter seems too small)?: and yes, I bought the right diameter. I used to have them on my Shadow and they were so comfortable, now I feel they are less comfortable on the Valk than the original grips, and I am considering switching to cheap foam tubes that worked well on one of my previous bikes.
So I installed them and it went as easy as on my last bike lol but the left grip seemed a little harder to get on.
I suggest if anyone does it, sand the bar well and leave it rough and then slide the grip on dry a few times to loosen up the rubber pads a bit because that black widow glue ain't no joke.
Without the grips my left hand would start to tingle and go numb after about 100 miles but with the grip I have not had any issues so far.
