I am going to be installing grips on new bars. I need to buy grips and was thinking of the Kuryakan Flame grips, however I found out it does not come with the throttle sleeve. Can I purchase these sleeves?
Or can I easily remove my throttle sleeve, also is it an easy process to install everything on the new bars?

You can cut the old grip off of the throttle sleeve, clean the old glue off, and reuse.

You do not want to use the Kury glue when installing the grips. Do a search for golf grip tape.

The Kuryakyn ISO Throttle Boss is purchased separately. Just right side or right and left sides may be purchased for a matched look. They attach to the Kury ISO Grips with four screws on the end of the grip. Be sure to attach the Throttle Boss to the Grips and inspect for proper position and alignment before permanently attaching grips. I’m using golf tape rather than the fast setting glue that comes with the grips. I used a long thin screwdriver with WD40 to work the old grips lose. Clean WD40 and old glue off and sand/scrape bars so new adhesive will grip better. Soak inside of grips and golf tape with lighter fluid before sliding grips on. Allow to setup overnight before riding.
