Ostrich Grips
« on: July 12, 2005, 10:06:20 PM »

I read a post on another forum about a guy who had put ostrich grips on his bike.  I actually went out and found the site where they were but did not bookmark it.  I will be damned if I can find it now that I am ready to order though.  Anybody have any info on those grips.  They sure are cool!

Never mind all, as soon as my post hit the forum I saw the post from Nidan about the SAC Grips.  Boy do I feel stupid. [smiley=nixweiss.gif]

Nidan,

Are they the same color as the stock Harley seat?  I am waiting for the Corbin Dual Tour that Buffy has on his in a color called Buff.  Which appears to be a little lighter than the stock Harley color which I would call carmel.  I plan on using the Dual Tour mostly for longer rides with the wife and keep the stock seat (which I have a spare of by the way) for daily rides.

Can't wait to get 'em. [smiley=laugh.gif]

My bike is a 2001 with the tan seat, the pic on the SAC site actually shows tan.  I am going for it anyway.  Did you install yourself?  How tricky was it.  I like all of the chrome on your controls, very nice.

I have installed grips before , it was a pain . I had it done this time. I recently got married and haven't got all my tools and work bench set up yet in the new place.

Last time around I cut them off with my RTX moto tool. This time I let the dealer do it

Is the stock left grip glued?  Or to the billet grips bolt on? [smiley=confused5.gif]

Left grip glued up until the 05 models.  You can get them off though.  Have actually always had good luck just grabbing it with both hands and twisting to something just short of a hemmorhoid inducing level of force.  The glue will break loose.
