Anybody aware of a billet (ar anything else...) replacement for the rubber grippy oh shit handles? Short of cutting them, mine arent coming off....almost like they were put on with gorilla glue! :-/

The way to get them off is to pull up from the bottom. That allows a little air to get in there and they release and come right off.

It comes off real dry the first time. Keep working at it from the bottom and you will eventually get it. I smeared a dab of dielectric grease in the rubber handle when I put it back on. There is probably better stuff to use but I had a tube sitting on my floorboard so I used it. Makes putting it back on and future removal a lot easier. Doesn't move around after you tighten the screw back down.

2 in the rear, 1 in the front.....even with the screw out, they're not budging. Even tried rolling them off like a jimmy hat! :) Ill have to try again with a few more beers, and a tad more patience!

If you can get the bottom loosened up, fire some compressed air in there... it'll help pop it free and might make it easier to remove. Kinda like grips on a golf club.

I was really pissed at mine but after a lot of frustration I finally got it off. Don't give up.
