    I put my grips on using the zip tie method which was not mentioned in the video. Also some people, myself not included, like to boil their grips before putting them on but I'm not sure why. If anyone would like to explain that to me I would appreciate it.

    Boiling brand new grips makes them feel like your grips are already broken in feel wise, and apparently you an stretch them right away to your length. I personally just put them on and ride afterwards, they always break in after one good long fun sesh,
