    Now your ready to slide your bars into the trim sleeve. But you want to grease it up so that the trim assembly will rotate around the bar easily.

    now hold your grip next to it while its in the sleeve and determine how far the bar needs to hang out so that you may still hook up your start / stop switch before the bar goes into a curve. Maximize your space. you will first see that most grips are longer than the assmbly itself so you will have to let some of the grip hang off and onto the bar (but not on the rotating trim plastic)

    in a case like this. We just cut the grip at the beginning so that we could slide more onto the sleeve and not having any hang off the entire bar which you will see shortly.

    Once you have marked where you can go and still have the start/stop switch operational on the same side, you will have to mark where you drill the "through-bar" screw that locks the trim system into place.

    here is the cut grip

    here is the hole tapped after maximizing all space on the bar.

    in order for your start/stop switch to work on aftermarket bars, you have to drill the nub off that is located on the inside which you see here:

    now you can put it into place and lightly torque it so that its still moveable when sliding the trim system back on to be bolted down.

    after applying grease - you can slide the trim on (grease underneith the trim, not on the plastic where the griplock goes)

    now torque everything down including your bars to the boat, the start/stop switch and also the long bolt that runs through the bars inside the trim.

    your now ready to put your grip on - but use some good grip lock first.
