How To Replace Grips and Bar Ends on a CBR600RR with Driven D3

I bought a set Driven D3 grips with bar ends which are a good improvement over stock.

1. Remove stock bar ends with a phillips head screw driver.
2. To remove the grips use a blow under the grip with a blow gun, from an air compressor, and pull as you blow air in.
3. Putting the new grips on is the trickies part. I cleaned the handle first with isopropyl alcohol to remove the glue from the old grips.
I used the blow gun to put the new grips on. It was tedious but I got there in the end.
I tried some kwik grips spray but it was too hard to get the grips on so I didn't use any glue. Don't forget to leave the collar on then you put the grips on.
4. Remove the centre piece inside the handle which the bar end screws into. I used a piece of wire and twisted it on tight to release the centre piece. As you can see in the picture.



5. The bolt that is in the bar ends isn't long enough for the CBR600RR so I bought a longer bolt and some washers.


6. To put them in the handle just screw the nut so that the rubber piece is only just big enough to go in the handle. Then push it in and screw the bar end as tight as possible by hand.


This is what they look like on the bike.

To get the d3 grips on I just used hairspray. Man I wish the metal parts of the grips matched the red on the car like the blue matches.... now I have a red and black bike with metallic maroon grips...

Easier way to get the grips off, IMO, is this: Take a metal hanger and cut a piece off (12 inch.). Bend one end of it to get a 1 inch piece. Remove the bar end and stick the longer portion of the hanger in between the grip and the bar itself, and then begin rotating the 1 inch piece like a crank. It'll move itself around the grip, separating the glue. Then it's an easy pull off from there.

easiest way to remove a grip is an air compressor with a blow nozzle on it.

I curled mine inside out to get them off... No problem. Then the hairspray trick to get the new ones on.

You can also leave the Center's in, take the nut and rubber off, and then just twist the bar ends on.

Just installed mine today, and thought I would resurrect this thread to add a helpful note. I put Isopropyl Alcohol on mine, 70%, and they slid right on. Afterwards it evaporates fairly quickly, and they stick so I'm not worried about them coming off.

For just the grips themselves:

It doesn't get any easier.

A shop recommended I use Blue Threadlocker. That is what I did. They don't move now.

Someone (If you're not the first owner) might have used threadlocker on it. I suggest you use a soldering iron, let it heat up and place the tip against the screw for 2 minutes or so. It should make it much easier.

Having problems installing these also.. Not sure why you added the longer screws, and how you removed the old ones? How does it ride without the bar weights?

Sears sells a nifty little tool called the Strap Wrench. It will keep the bar ends from turning while you remove the screw. Or, if you don't plan on keeping them a pair of vice grips or even a pipe wrench will hold them, but it will scratch them up. The Strap Wrench won't.


Tip for removing the grips. Put some liquid soap on a screwdriver blade and work it around under the grips. They will then slide right off without damage (unless you start doing the wild thing with the screwdriver). No chemicals needed as suggested elsewhere online. Then it's easy to rinse them to reinstall.
