"I need the name of this part"

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Sun Aug 25, 2013 1:16 pm

What is the part called that is like the cap at the end of the handlebars?

Mine, on the right side, is gone.

I also see that the rubber is torn on the ... er, rubber part that is over the handlebars.

Does the rubber come off the handlebar? Do I need new rubbers and "caps"?

Thanks in advance.

Pix?

The handgrip on your motorcycle, is that what you mean?

There's a metal end cap that goes on the end of the actual handlebars. Handlebars are made from tubed metal and are generally hollow so the end cap keeps water from getting in there.

My guess is, for whatever reason, someone changed the handle grips and the old end cap got stuck in the old one. Now instead of a smooth end there's a sharp edge, which has now cut/pushed through the end of the new grip.

I forgot what kind of bike you said you had but search for "bike" "end caps" and you should find them. Then all you need is a new set of handlebar grips.
