How to Install Chilhowee Motorcycle Handlebar Covers

Motorcycle Handlebar Covers INSTRUCTIONS:

The leather used to lace up the Handlebar Covers is a strong, full grain leather - They can be broken if stressed too much, however, so go ahead and tighten them up, but just be careful!

  • There is no right or wrong way to lace the handlebar covers. Some people start from the end and lace it toward the center. Others start at the middle and work their way to the end. Decisions, decisions! No matter where you start, it's a good idea to have some needle nose pliers handy to help pull the laces through the holes.
  • Begin by wrapping the Cover around the handlebar, so the lacing will be on the underside of the handlebar tubing. If you have cables clipped to the handlebar (as most of us do), check to see if the cover will lace around the clips. You can release the cable and remove the clip, if necessary.
  • Thread the lace through the first hole on each side of the cover, letting the ends hang down to make sure you have the same amount of lacing on both sides.
  • Take the end of one lace, cross over to the next hole on the opposite side of the cover, insert it, and pull it through. Don't pull it too tight yet or it will be more difficult to thread the other lace. Although we cut the lacing to a point, you may want to use tweezers or needle nose pliers to make the job easier.
  • Take the end of the other lace, cross over to the next hole on the opposite side of the cover, insert it, and pull it through. Now you can cinch it up. Repeat the process until you have laced through every hole.
  • Finally, tie a knot of your choice with the laces to keep them from loosening. Some people like to cut any excess lacing off, but I recommend leaving enough there to work with in the event you ever decide to remove and re-install!
