So I heard some guys use Triflow to put on their grips cause it's easier to position them after they're on then air is. Tell me what you use and if you use triflow tell me what the product name is please!

WD40. Spray a light coat inside the grip and slide it on. It dries quick and your grip stays in place. This has been my method for 30 years.

If WD40 is taking too long to dry then you are using way too much. I've never had it take longer than 30 seconds to dry and my grips feel like they're glued on afterwards. I'm not putting down other methods, just saying WD40 has worked flawlessly for me for many years.

Thank for the reply but I feel like that would take a bit long to dry.

I feel like hairspray would work as it's friggen sticky after drying but still slippery when wet

Hairspray works , but spray a bit more than you think . Also , gave some local kid a pair of grips , we didn't have anything to use so he bought a can of axe an I drowned his bars and grips with it and they slid on !

GUYS! Use a few zip ties to slide your grips on. After they're on, simply just pull 'em out and you're ready to ride.

If you have access to an air compressor, just blowing air under the grip is the fastest way to remove and install them.

Last set I installed I just spit in em a little. I wasn't riding that day so it was all good.

Rubbing alcohol works great and dries very quick-few mins usually. I don't touch ANYTHING that acts as a lubricant.

Nah, it's quick & works perfectly, as will most of these other solutions as long as you don't use too much of the stuff.

A bit more expensive though.

And if you round the allen screw for the lock ons, they're a pain to remove.

They'll never throttle if they're wet.

I used iso alcohol to install my grips. Pour some on a paper towel. Wipe the bars and pour some in the grip and shake. Pour out the excess and slip them on and adjust position. Super fast and you can ride within 5-10 minutes with no sticky mess. Also there is a tech to slipping them on. Jab the opposite bar your working on into your waist (might want to put a pad there to take the load) and pull towards you to get good leverage. So if I was installing the left grip I'd put the right bar end on my gut in a shoe and pull towards me. Work quick... no messing around or it'll dry.

It dries tacky too so it acts as an adhesive

Windex works too, it evaporates about as fast as alcohol. Go caveman and just spit on them. Compressed air to get them off.

I just do what I do when a girl wants it in her butt.
1. stick my finger in my mouth (or hers) so that it's covered in spit.
2. stick my spit covered finger into the hole and cover it with spit.
3. stick my bar in.
Presto!
on the real though, I've never had a problem with this. just wet the inside a dab, and slide them on. it dries within a minute and you can still move them around too to get them where you want.

Pretty much all you need is a product (liquids are preferable) that will create a film between the rubber and the surface of the bar to prevent the rubber from doing its rubbery thing to the bar. you don't need a lot of liquid to do this and preferably use a liquid that will evaporate/dry quickly. For me spit works just fine but all these other suggestions seem to work just as well and may be a lil more hygienic. Good luck.. you can also just use water, no need to spend money on some special product. It's really very simple.

I've always used wd40. It dries completely in 5-10 minutes, if you do it correctly, and they lock on perfectly. My grips never slip. Wd40 displaces moisture, and your grips will lock right on, and they are just as easy to remove with wd40. Don't use hairspray. You will never get them off, and it's sticky, and messy. Trust me once you try wd40, you won't use anything else. Unless you have an air compressor.

Yeah I agree. Just a tiny squirt of WD-40. Just enough to be able to pull on the grip. Dries within a minute.
