Additional Parts Required
Rider and passenger safety depend upon the correct installation of this kit. Use the appropriate service manual procedures. If the procedure is not within your capabilities or you do not have the correct tools, have a Harley-Davidson dealer perform the installation. Improper installation of this kit could result in death or serious injury. (00333b)
Removal of the right handlebar switch removal requires a service manual for your model and year of motorcycle. A service manual can be purchased from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
  • When routing and closing Right and Left Hand Control Modules (R&LHCMs), verify there are no pinched wires. See service manual.
  • When installing Right Hand Control Module (RHCM), verify throttle end play is set correctly. See service manual.
  • Before removing front brake master cylinder, insert wedge to protect brake switch. See service manual.
  • Carefully install clutch lever to not damage the clutch switch. See service manual.
Remove and Install the Left Grip
1. See Figure 1. Remove the two screws with flat washers securing the handlebar clamp (3) to the clutch lever bracket. Remove the clamp and position the clutch hand lever assembly away from the handlebar.
2. Loosen, but do not remove, the upper and lower switch housing screws (1).
3. Remove the end cap from the existing left handlebar grip if equipped. Remove the grip by carefully cutting it away from the handlebar using a sharp blade or knife.
Make sure that the handlebar surface and the inside of the grip are smooth, dry and thoroughly cleaned of all dirt or adhesive residue.
Do not lubricate left handlebar grip before installation. Lubricating grip can cause it to come off while riding, which could result in loss of control and death or serious injury. (00315a)
4. Position the new left grip (4) so the larger flange (5) is at the bottom. Push the grip fully onto the handlebar.
5. Fit the grooves (2) on the outboard side of the upper and lower switch housing over the flanges on the end of the grip, then loosely fasten the two screws.
6. Position the clutch hand lever assembly inboard of the switch housing assembly, engaging the tab on the lower switch housing in the groove at the bottom of the clutch lever bracket.
7. Align the holes in the handlebar clamp with those in the clutch lever bracket, and loosely fasten the two screws with flat washers. Adjust the switch housing and clutch hand control position for rider comfort.
8. Tighten first the upper, then the lower handlebar clamp screws.
Torque: 6.8–9 N·m (60–80 in-lbs) clamp screws
9. Tighten first the lower, then the upper switch housing screws.
Torque: 4–5.4 N·m (35–48 in-lbs) switch housing screws

Remove and Install the Right Grip
1. Refer to the service manual for removal of the switch housing assembly. This is necessary to access the throttle cables.
2. Refer to the service manual to disconnect the throttle cables and remove the existing right grip/throttle sleeve assembly. After removal, make sure that the handlebar end is clean and smooth.
3. Follow instructions in the service manual to install the new right grip/throttle sleeve to the handlebar and connect the throttle cables.
Before starting engine, be sure throttle control will snap back to idle position when released. A throttle control that prevents engine from automatically returning to idle can lead to loss of control, which could result in death or serious injury. (00390a)
4. Verify that the right grip/throttle sleeve rotates and returns freely and does not bind on the handlebar or switch housing.
Most end caps are available separately.
Leather will wear and naturally age with time. Apply Harley-Davidson leather care products according to their instructions to help preserve leather lacing material.
Black billet grips in Kit 56405-08 are designed to show signs of wear. Over time the paint will wear off giving a distressed look.
Silencer grips in Kit 55869-10 can be cleaned with Harley® Bright Metal Polish (H-D Part No. 99725-89) OR S100® Polishing Soap (H-D Part No. 99779-04).
For illustration purposes, generic-styled hand grips are shown.
If the kit part number does not appear in Table 1 , the end cap is not serviceable.
