I want to replace my grips, does the TW have single or dual cable throttle? I see two cables coming off it, but it also could be considered one wrapped around.
These supposedly fit a 06 TW200, but the auction says " note the throttle tube only works with single throttle cable models, will not work with dual cable models."

That's what I thought, thanks. I wonder if I could just pull the grip off the tube...
Just buy some new grips! Do you really need a new throttle tube? The easiest way I have found to remove grips is to use wd-40 and slid the straw under the grip and squirt. The grip will just twist right off and you can wipe off the throttle tube and install your new grips. I really like progrips. They are a little longer than normal so you will have to cut them or do what I do and add a piece of tube to the end of yours as such:
'13 690 Enduro R too many frickin farkles...
'07 KLX250 farkled (wife's bike)
'86 BW80 farkled to size
'10 TW200 you will be missed
i agree with palmstatecrawler wd40 works...or compressed air (like you would use to clean a computer) or an air compressor with a tube fixture is less messy and you don't have to worry about wiping everything down and your new grips not staying on...you probably don't need a new throttle tube...i run pro grips as well...like palm said they are a little long but on my pars it didn't matter too much...as far as putting on new grips you can use a grip glue...i use aerosol hairspray and just let it dry in the sun
