Part 5.3:
The right side is a bit more complicated because of the throttle cable, but not really difficult either. First, the handlebar weight is unscrewed and removed. The combination fitting is screwed with 2 screws from the bottom. Once you have solved this, you can open the casing and fold it away. Now you still have to remove the throttle cable and the provision. To do this, turn the adjusting screw all the way in and loosen the upper throttle cable. Now you can solve this carefully with a pair of needle nose pliers from the holder. Then you turn the whole handle a little in the opposite direction and relaxed so the rear throttle cable, which can now hang out very easily. Then you can pull the whole handle from the handlebars. Here nothing is glued, as the gas sleeve goes over the gasamte length of the handle. After cleaning, the handlebar and the new handle are sprayed from the inside with silicone spray to ensure smooth running. Then hang the trains in reverse order in the handle and grease the end a bit.
The combi fitting is now screwed back together with the two screws and returned to their original position. Now the handlebar weight is screwed onto the handle and the play of the throttle cable is corrected again. Finished!

A straight line is only the shortest connection between two curves ...

First steps to make my X even prettier.

Yikes!! I said something like that to a Harley guy,
and almost got my ass whooped..... :183:

He had a really wild paint job on his bike, and I said
"That really looks pretty". Right after those words came
out of my mouth I knew they weren't................

 "Bad Ass Biker Lingo"!! :430:

But, to stay on topic, "YOUR bike is really Pretty"!  Ja!!! :152:

Thank you Choyashi for the anecdote from your life. But thank God the tastes are different and that's a good thing. I like individual bikes better than the standard boredom.

There is no "But" about it Adman.
I'm in total agreement.
But, 'prettier" must just be a translation thing.
No guy is going to say anything on his bike is pretty!  :188:
At least if English is his first language.
Your work on the grips alone was outstanding.

P.S. That reminds me of an old Confucius joke....Girl on back like???
I forgot the rest, sorry.

No problem, choyashi. Sometimes it is not easy to describe certain facts in another language. There are also idioms, sayings and jokes that make no sense in another language.
As I said in my greeting, my school English is not very good, I was more a specialist in mathematics, physics and science. Sorry!
