Swapping grips

Changing the grips on a Bobber, is it a basic swap?
Any gotchas?
On my T100 I had to sand down the throttle tube, is that the case here?
Thanks!

The theft grip is straight forward; Iíve had luck in the past directing high pressure air between the grip and the bar to help move it along (on and off). For the throttle side, there a series of molded rectangular features that hold the grip in place. They make removal something of a pain, and if you have a grip that isnít specifically Triumph, then you may need to shave those down to fit the new grip smoothly. I removed mine from the Bobber to wrap the bars with leather. Shaving the plastic throttle tube smooth made a big difference.
