tom made this for me a while back, but i'm finally getting around to posting the installation tutorial.  we've eliminated the need to drill, but actually bolting the handle on has proven to be a little more tedious than intended.  we want to get rid of the oval grip and bolt on something a little larger.  basically, you remove the old rubber grip and you're are left with the arm and a stainless steel post.  no more drilling.



for tools, you will need a size "O" phillips, a dental pick, a quarter inch driver extension, and a flat driver bit.



back out the two small screws and remove the handle cap.





you'll see a tiny hex nut.  to remove this, use the 1/4" drive extension.  it's a perfect fit!







the oval knob will lift right off. 



but, wait, there's more!  inside the knob are more washers.  beneath the hex nut is a lock washer, then a "D-shaft" washer, and then three flat washers. 



for those of you not familiar with D-shaft washers, they are designed to fit on a shaft with a matching cut out.  you can see it here. 



slide on the new handle, then two of the flat washers, and finally the D-shaft washer.



now install the new screw cap.  if you're lucky, you are done.  ok, it's too tight?  remove a flat washer.  too loose?  add a washer.  generally, two washers works.



you will have these left over parts.  save them.  you never know.....



your new handle is ready to enjoy.  they are $35 each plus shipping! 



thanks!  alan

The install was easy when I put one on my JX.

No ball bearings? If so, great!

I have one of those handles on my HX Raptor.  It's great!  I kept the original egg knob on my JX's since I use them for yoyoing and the egg works well for fast turning of the handle and the HXW Raptor already has a nice power handle.
