    Yes it should ! I'm Matthieu, 33 years old from Paris. I'm sorry for my bad english, but I try to do my best :)
    I'm a mechanical designer in oil and gas exploration. I've got my driving license since my 18 years old. Last year I finished my Bobber LS650 and my existing project is this XS400SE (4G5) that I bought for 300 dolls !

    If you want visit a real bikers forum, let me suggest you the french Cafe Racer Club : http://www.caferacerclub.org

    Thanks guys

    Looks great. I am having a tough time finding tan grips like those.

    you have to search on Ebay (worldwide) at : "Grip longneck ODI gum" :thumbsup:

    the ergonomics is really perfect, I changed on all motorcycles I had before for them, and there is approximately 20 existing colors choices :thumbsup:

    Any chance I can see how you tucked the modified wiring harness under the gas tank? I have been wanting to see how people usually do this when removing all of the large plastic connectors.

    Yes they are for BMX, you can cut/ajust the lenght... that is rubber which is deformable and extensible !

    Thanks I can get those locally. I was never sure how they would fit over the bigger throttle side. Glad they will work. I also like the vans waffle grips.

    be carefull with these gips... there's not lateral stop surface between your hand and the handlebar switch... it could be very unconfortable to ride... :bike:
