Helen’s VFR back to Standard

Helen has recently bought a new Kawasaki ZX1000SX Tourer and will be picking it up in a few weeks time. She has decided that she wanted the VFR put back to standard as the Giles Variobars weren’t cheap (£300+) and she will likely get some money for them on Ebay.

So I have spent today uninstalling the Oxford heated grips and the Autocom unit. I have also removed the Variobars and fitted the original VFR clipons back on. We had to purchase a new throttle sleeve as I had to trim the other one a bit to fit the heated grips to it. It was a bit of a fiddly job but nowhere near as difficult as it was to install them in the first place.
