Thread: Securing grips to handle bars

    Re: Securing grips to handle bars

    I use tape one spiral up and one back, If the rubber grip is fighting to get on I place it on the end of the bar and blow compressed air through the plug hole as you push it on.

    I was told in Service School to use a few of drops of gasoline. Same as alcohol, it cleans, lubes, & evaporates away. Holds like glue. When you want to take them off, take a long,thin blade screwdriver, slip it part way between grip & bar, pour a few more drops of gasoline into the void, pull out the 'driver, & work the liqiud around the grip & bar. Slides right off.

    Best way to remove...if grips have the holes on the ends is with air pressure
