force em on without anything on them, not even spit or water, or wd40, or hairspray or grip glue or grip lock

just get like three or four straws from 7 eleven or anyplace like that and then put the straws through the grip and on the bars. then pull the straws out. this takes like less than 5 mins to do and its really easy

there was something on ridebmx.com a couple months ago that went something like this: put some zip ties in the grip(inbetween the bar and grip) slide it on and pull out the zip ties and if you dont understand what im talkin about go search it on ridebmx.com

you need to use old fasioned hair spray not the new stuff thats like non stick extra strength hold and now with a new fragrence. all that other stuff makes it loose

this sounds realyy gay
but clean the bars (dry em and everything)
put a very lil amount of grip lock or whatever u use
NOT ALOTT
blow throw the hole and push at the same time
and it should go on fine

use an air compressor with an air spray tip ind spray the air into the grips while ur putting them on...works every time and you dont have to let em dry

|

if they are wet just blow air through em and then slide them on
dont ruin ur bars with water and hairspary and shit like that

put like grip glue or elmers glue on there NOT GORILLA GLUE OR SUPERGLUE but the glue helpos it slide on and helps it stick better. but i would reccomend that you put some zipties on your grips overnight or for a day or two. it really helps and they dont slide at all
