    Cycra handguard install ?

    When installing the throttle side guard do I need to drill the plastic out to the size of the handle bar and do I need to cut the grip off even with the handle bar? Or??

    If a bolt goes into the bar end, then yes you will have to cut both.

    Somebody on here posted a nice method where they put a zip-tie around the grip and used it as a cutting guide to make a nice clean cut of the hand grip.

    This is what I did when I put on my Oxford adventure heated grips.

    Yes... the throttle tube and grip need to be opened up enough to rotate freely over the handle bar and not be restricted by the bar-end mounting of the hand guards.

    Only cut the grip and plastic with the hack saw. Leave the metal handle bars whole.
