I bought these grips yesterday (9/25/04) from a local scoot shop. A little more money than here, but not that much. I had a question on which ones I needed (6240 vs 6236) and the service manager was able to look up my bike in the catalogue and confirm that the 6240's were the right choice. The service manager also spent a few minutes explaining, in detail, how to install them. He had a bike that was in process of having them installed, so he was able to show me exactly how they should be oriented, which is the most important part of the whole process. He showed me how to clean the glue from the old grips, and how to dry-fit them and mark their position, which guaranteed a perfect alignment. I was able to get the stock grips off by using a thin screwdriver and working it under and around the bar. "Do not use WD-40" the service manager warned. A little twisting, and off they came.
