How to remove chrome hand grips on a motorcycle
Chrome grips help customise your motorcycle. (motorcycle image by Bionic Media from

Chrome handlebar grips are a customised motorcycle grip that gives your bike a customised look. After long periods of time, the chrome will start to fade and then you will need to change the grips. All custom motorcycle grips are secured to the handlebars just about the same way. On the end of the grip will be screws -- the end cap screws that can be taken on and off the handlebars.

  1. 1

    Park the motorcycle on a level surface and look at the end caps on each handlebar to see if there are screws, or if the end caps twist off. If the end caps are solid, then you will need pliers. If the end caps have screws, you will need Allen wrenches.

  2. 2

    Remove the screws securing the grips to the handlebars using an Allen wrench. Use pliers to turn the end caps counterclockwise if there are no screws. Make sure you have a tight grip on the end cap if using pliers so the pliers don't slide and damage the end cap.

  3. 3

    Pull the end caps off of each handlebar and set them aside. Slide the chrome grip and inner plastic cover off the handlebar. Nothing secures the grip of the plastic cover to the frame of the handlebar -- they will slide right off. Store the grip and the plastic covers in a place that is dry and where you won't lose them.
