Talk about a struggle just to switch out grips. As some know i am completely new to bikes. Learning stuff as I go. I got myself some Avon grips gatlin style. In all the reviews and looking up do they not say that they are a huge pain in the ass to put on a vtx.

I struggled getting the cables attached to the cam. I literally had to take the bike apart.....which I didn't completely I like short cuts. I know it's not good. If anyone buys avon grips for a vtx. Start loosening at the carb. Makes it way way easier. I got them on and snapping back somewhat. Not perfect but it does the job. I might have to tweak it at the carb some more but a few more test rides and I'll see. If you want Avon grips be warn it can be a pain but once you know what to do. It isn't awful. It's more annoying then a pain. Just felt like I conquered a huge pain, had to tell everyone here. Took me 2 days to figure out haha.
