    Took my bike to work today (83 Honda Shadow). Luckily I was parked on a grassy area because a big wind storm came through this afternoon and blew my bike over. There was no damage other than the chrome end cap off the throttle side of my handlebars popped off. I can’t seem to get it back on and I was wondering if anybody here knew how to replace it short of glueing back in place. Thanks

    On the throttle side, if you use glue you are going to have to be careful that you don't seize up the movement of the grip. That said, I don't know Honda handlebars - but I do know end caps are installed differently on different manufacturer bikes, and even sometimes differ from year to year on the same make & model bikes.

    So I recommend you try this other forum:

    FYI - as a general rule, once an end cap comes off it is more likely to come off again. It may be simpler to get a new grip installed.

    Good luck
