I tried soapy water, and that worked well on the left side but I was having trouble geting the grip over the "lip" of the throttle. I was just thinking as I was typing this-maybe if I heat up the grips with a blow dryer(dont tell my wife) since it was cold enough to see my breath in the garage. what do u think?audi1031 said:soap would work and it will driy as well so then you will have no problem with them sliding around. :thumbup:
This is not a big deal to do. I have the Harris grips and I love them. All you need to do is take a air nozzle from a compressor and blow air under the edge, and they go right on (the old grips also come off easy that way too). No heat, no lube, and they stick good. The throttle side is a little harder because of the lip, but still, I replaced my grips in about 10 minutes.
