new slipstream handgrips installation on a 2010 ultra glide

Hi Folks
before i start to install my new slipstream handgrips ( e- throttle ) on my 2010 electra glide ultra classic, i like to know what to do, the installation paper which came with the grips, only shows the installation for the left side , for the right side you have to look into a service manual.
i did that work before on a 2003 model with no issues , but i think for the 2010 model its completely differnet because of the e-throttle.
Do i need to have special tools ? for what do i have to look for?
any ideas?
thank you very much in advance for your help

There is a "gear" on the end of the handlebar. That part fits into the end of the grip. Loosen the switch housing and take of old grip. Slide the grip on and make sure the gear on the end of your bars fits into the gear housing inside the end of the grip.

Yeah, Jared is right, it's just that easy. I would be careful of the brake and cruise switches inside the housing and make sure that the throttle returns freely before tightening everything back down.
