      Although to make it super easy ideally you need access to a compressor and a dust off gun.

          hot soapy water and a metal kebab skewer works well enough.

              A splash of metho lubes the grip to put it on, then evaporates completely to stick it there. Make sure the bar & throttle tube are totally clean & dry first.

                compresor is the best. never get twists in ur grips either.
                The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

                  yeh - compressor is the way. did mine last month and took about 1 minute each side - the compressor just blows them onto the handle - simple. where u?

                    apparently a dash of petrol is also good as it evaporates leaving the grips on nice and tight.

                        Contact adhesive and wire them on, you will have to use a knife to get them off they will never come loose.

                          Renthal gripstick (probably just relabeled contact adhesive).

                          Make sure not to move them while they're drying though, or they won't be well stuck.
