Biltwell Recoil Handgrips
So, I used my trusty Amazon Prime account to order a pair of Biltwell GR-GCY-01-BK Black 1″ Recoil Grips for $17.95. They arrived 2 days later as promised!
Next, I removed my CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter Bar End Mirrors with Billet Internal Adapters that I had purchased from Revzilla and installed in June of 2016.
I know from experience how much work it can be to get the Granturismo grips off, so to make things easy and take less time, I simply sliced them off with a heavy duty, sharp box cutter.
Following the instructions on the Biltwell box, I used WD-40 to lubricate the inside of the grips, and the outside of the bars, and just slid them on and into place. Within minutes they were dry enough and good to go.
Then I re-installed the CRG mirrors and positioned them for optimum rear viewing. Once I had everything back in place and checked over, I took it out for a spin. Wow, what a difference! The Recoils are so much more comfortable than the Ganturismo’s, and require less grip to twist and maintain the throttle position. My hands immediately fell in love with the new grips!
Here are the results of today’s work.
Had no idea these cutter tools existed. Just ordered one to punch out the pair of Oury’s I’m about to install. Thanks!
