    How hard is it to change out handle bar grips on a 08 road king, what are the steps to do it your self.

    You'll find a picture and text document showing you how to do it in the self help area if you just take a look in this section.

    It's all there if you just look.:s

    Try a search in the specific area of the self help forum and you'll find anything you are looking for.

    If this is a throttle by wire it is very easy, it it has cables it is easy. Search this site and there are plenty of good instructions.

    If you are using the Harley grips that are "no glue", then the hardest part is cutting off the original grip on the left side. If you are using grips that glue on, then the hardest part is getting the right amount of glue on the left side without getting too much so it doesn't dry.

    I've changed mine a couple of times now, and it's really pretty simple. It's definitely not worth what the dealer charges to install them.

    I took Hobbit's advice & used hairspray vs. grip glue...second season & not a slip.
