Xvs 650 grips issue

Discussion in 'Cruisers' started by Reddog093, Nov 18, 2015.

  1. Ok guys so I just bought some 7/8 biltwell recoil grips for my bike and of course hacked the old grips up and well my flash new grips wont fit over the throttle tube so I was wondering if anyone has had a similair issue or if I have bought the wrong grips?

  2. what's the diameter of your throttle tube, and the bar diameter on LHS?
  3. You have bought the wrong grips.
    The XVS' have 1" bars.
  4. Well here I am thinking a metric bike would have metric bars, motherfcuker. Oh well its only money hahahaha. Thanks guys
  5. They are, just it's 25mm. :)
  6. Thanks mate, should have grabbed my verniers from work before I spent my money hahaha oh well now I have some 7/8 grips for a project, gotta start somewhere ☺
