I got some new grips for my 05 . I have changed plenty of grips on other bikes . simple to loosen the cables and swap them but this one has a black sleeve that seems to be crimped so I cant loosen the lock nut and back the tension off the cable. I feel like a Idiot that I am stumped by this .

The two nuts won't twist in opposite directions? left hand threaded? Would assume the barrel on the upper side houses the threaded end. Appears to be fully retracted, but I don't recognize the cable as stock. Usually, you can disassemble the unit if you can get at least one loosened then work on the twist grip ferrules.
Both cables appear to be fully collapsed on your bike...........

I figured as much but how in the heck was he or she (previous owner) get the cables on if their was no slack. I wasnt sure if those were factory cables for the CVO . I bought it from a local dealership cash deal with 20,000 miles on it and not a lot of history
At this point you may have to take the ferrule out of the throttle body slot and do it that way.
