I have an 03 RMK 800 that looks just like yours and i am putting a riser and new Fly minibend bars on so if you are interested in the stock bars let me know and maybe we can work a deal

I wont need any of those parts cause i ordered all new grips and warmers and hopefully will have them by Friday and i wont have a chance to put it all on until Monday and if everything goes as planned the warmers and grips should be still good. I will keep intouch with you and post pics when i get everything done.

Unless they changed things recently, no. I just removed the grips and warmers on two machines. I used a hairdryer to heat the grips. It takes a while. Figure out a way to set up the hairdryer to blow on the grip and find something else to do for 5 to 10 minutes. When the grip gets good and hot, grab the inside edge and pull it off. It may take a few tries, but be patient and don't get rammy. Once the grips are off, the warmer is a tape-like thing that is glued to the bar. It helps to heat that up to loosen the glue. Then take a knife or something with a somewhat sharp tip and peel the warmer off the bar. Just like skinning a deer. Be careful not to cut the warmer. If you cut the warming element, it is junk. Go slow. Good luck.

use a heat gun, but be very careful..they are like a hair dryer on some major steroids..stay far enough back because it will melt the grip!
