Ok maybe you can get a seven minute install on a harley or a victory or most any other bike. But on a 1998 Suzuki Intruder 1400 with original factory grips it just ain't gona happen. The clutch side is a breeze goes on nice just like kyle says it will. "BUT!" That throttle side on the 98 1400 Intruder is going to take a few hours of hand sanding if you have the original grip on the throttle side. I just spent 4 hours sanding mine down by hand All the little ribs on the throttle tube will need to be sanded down flush to the tube as well as the lip rings on the tube at the top of the controls.Before you can even get close to getting the grip on. If you think only going half way is a good idea, think again all the way or not at all I found was the case with mine. Even than I had to soap the last inch of the grip to get a correct fit. In retrospect I probably should have gone to the shop for this install and had a professional install thiese grips. If you are like me and you have a late model bike save your self some some stress and get a new throttle tube as well or let a professional do it. I've only had these about a week and started my install 7/25/2015.
Less than 7 min. my foot!
A bigger tube of the Black Widow adhesive or even a tube of Loctite Super Glue (Gell) would be handy.
They really make my (Sweet baby Yumyum) Intruder 1400 look sharp. They feel better and bigger than the factory grips to. I feel like I have more control over the bike as well. My hands don't feel numb after a long ride.
The only big complaint I think I can find is Kuryakyn doesn't really supply enough adhesive to complete the install. the two tube that they do supply only give you about 2 small drops of adhesive for both grips. and the adhesive sets up father than krazy glue so you have to be really quick with getting your grips in place.
