It ain't rocket science, no different then changing grips on any other bike.

Well that was extremely helpful,having been riding bikes since 1964 and owned too many to remember,and dozens of grip changes,this is my first with fly by wire,I managed to find a few videos but all Harleys.I dont like just diving into a project and like to know of any potential problems before I start,no doubt it is probably straightforward,but thanks for you valuable input. :)

It's true- all the fly by wire stuff is inside the little plastic box on he bars. The grip goes on the tube and is held there by friction - just pull it off like you would with a cable one. Might need to squirt a little water between the grip and the tube to get it moving (you could use a light oil but you'll need to clean it off thoroughly afterwards)...but if you've done lots of grip changes you already know all about that

I used this video when changing the grips on my water cooled T100.

If you have an air compressor or a friend who has one, you can use that to blow high pressure air into the gap between the grip and the tube. It is still a bit of a fight but it avoids the use of lubricants between the grip and the tube.
