There are quite a few ways to 'lock' the grips on the handlebars. The right grip, being the throttle, you don't really want to 'glue' it on, in case you want or need to change it out later on. However, there are products, like Grip Glue, which don't 'permanently' stick it on, but will make it so it doesn't slip. Personally, I've gone with a 'cheap' alternative, and used liquid soap, like Ivory, and it worked fine for me for years. Just put a little inside the lip of the grip, and slide it on, and leave it alone for a few hours. When the soap hardens, it sticks to both the grip and the handlebar/throttle sleeve. If you put too much in there, it will just slip and slide all the time, and you'll have to wash it out and off the handlebar/throttle sleeve before you can get it to stick.
I think we are all assuming he has the right grips but.... if they are original chances are they are aged to the point of needing to be replaced if they aren't reglueing.1" grip on a 7/8 handlebar its never going to stick.wrap electrical tape around the bars to take up the extra room
Sounds like you added just a bit too much coolant and didn't let it settle to fill the voids to let the air out before starting. I always like to rock the bike side to side and front to rear, rear to front to force the air out and let the coolant settle in. BTW if you bike has the coolant reservoir did you drain it also so it's clean?the puddle see is there i was draining the rusty crappy water that had built up inside the radiator and had flushed it out then refilled. speaking of which, is there a "magic way" to tell when the radiator is full? and according to the manual, you are supposed to leave the radiator cap off after filling, crank the bike, and make sure no air bubbles come out. when i did this, i had radiator fluid come spewing out, at which point i refilled while the bike was running (according to the manual). is that normal? or was it an air bubble?
