How do you get Wd-40 on your grips on accident? Anyway Wd-40 is a water displacement, so you can just leave it alone for awhile depending on how much you "accidentally" put on, and it will dry and your grips will stay in place, if you want it off, take your grips off and wash them, then let them dry for a few hours or dry them with a blow dryer, then put them back on when dry.

I hate my life without an air compressor although i found a pretty good solution. Whiskey sour mix makes an awesome grip glue hahah goes on when when and its so sticky the grips dry in like 5 minutes and dont move at all. Yay for being an alcoholic!

Take the grip off, clean the bar area and the grip, spray some hairspray on that beast, then put the grip back on.

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones

i use wd 40 to put mineon and after a night of drying I never get throttle grip, so if it is wd 40 just leave them alone

If you were a woman Id bash your skull =)

peel up your grip while its still on the bar and wipe the bottom with your hand or a cloth and just do that to each side and that should work

|

12/4/2011 4:30 PM

hair spray or odi lock on grips are the way to go

WD40 actually makes your grips slip on and then stick firm, so that can't be what you got under them. Most likely water. just roll em back and the rubber underneath as well as your bars.
