take gripds off and clean everything with a dry towel. then blow the grips on with an air compressor. problem solved.

take your grips off and spray some hair spray on the bars, slide them back on...hair spray gets sticky when it dries...problem solved...been doing it for years...

hairspray also eats away at your grips is what ive been told and since i stoped using it my grips last longer

and to fix your problem just use some rubbing alchol on the bars and in the grips it will clean it dont touch the bars where the grips go or the inside of the grip and then slide the grip on and let it sit for like 2 hours should dry by then and then use a hair dryer and heat the grips up a little and it will make them stick even a little better then you shouldnt have a problem and dont sand the chrome thats bad for you cuz of the chemicals it releses

As long as you aren't snorting the filings of the chrome you are fine.

As to making your grips not move, I never had an issue with grip slip on chrome bars or anything. Not sure why yours do, but what do you ride? Dirt? Park? Street?

If it is dusty, that can come into play. If all else fails, a small amount of glue.

i always used WD-40 to put my grips on. just wait a bit and not use half the can and it stays very well. they never slip or slide on me.

glue

Throttle grip is caused by moisture, so WD-40, displaced the water on the grips, should solve the problem. If not, the bars might be too small in diameter, which is a problem on the manufacturing end, so contacting BSD is an option

i don't get why everyone has a problem with putting grips on. My XL's were a fucking bitch but normal grips go on easy if you aren't a pussy. no tools needed.

try putting Electrical tape where the grips will be. just 1 layer. should help the grips stick

this wd40 is the way to go

Yeah WD-40 is what i use to get them on, just spray some on a screwdriver and rub it in the grip and some on the bars and it should hold up fine.

use 2 knives...put the 2 knives inside the grip and then put the grip on the bar, after that remove the knives and you're done.

Grip glue definately if you can get any. Otherwise, I would say brand new or very good condition grips and some zipties and a plier. Also, clean on the bars where the grips would go of course.

Leave your grips out for 24 hours, and then make sure your bars are dry. then get a air compressor and use it to put the grips onto the bars.

Amazing how this thread was bumped from 2011 for no apparent reason haha

All the solutions you guys said are rally good but with WD40 i first slides in easily and then dries up everything i have always used it and never a slip a part when it rains but just get em out and redo
