Hi people i guess i shouldant be writting this post as it may give you the impression that im a bit of a :banghead: , But i thought it was funny so i thought i would share it..
I went down tot he local bike dealer yesterday and brought my self a nice new pair of grips, I took the old ones off and went to put the new ones on but the glue they supplied with the grips had dried up so me being extreamly impatient i thougth if use superglue.. I know
Well as i pushed the grip onto the throttle i didant notice but the super glue managed to squish its way into my throttle slide and when i pushed the grip further up is squished its self into the throttle cable caseing..
Well as a result of this i ended up stripping the whole lot down and cleaned up all of the glue and regreased everything, So i wont me aking that mistake again, I guess the moral of this story is that if you need anything doing to your bike dont let me anywhere near it.. :banghead:
