Don't glue them, I have always heard hairspray was enough. With that being said, I would try heat. Use a blow dryer and get the grips a little softer.

What kind of glue are you using? superglue?


You should be able to glop that all on the inside and slide it right on easily. I suppose it just depends what glue your using though.

Why not glue them? Hair spray is hit and miss. It can easily get loosened up after exposure to water after some time. Heating the grip will help it slide on a little easier too though. But i've never had to do that.


Edit:

"im using pro taper instant grip glue that i got from tejas"

You should have ample time to get your grips on the bars with that stuff. Don't be afraid to use alot of it. Obviously, before it dries it will act like a lubricant to get the grips on. If you put too much on, you can wipe away the excess that may ooze out somewhere.

Use an air compressor, shoot air into the grip as you put it on. Makes the grip balloon out. And you can slide it on as long as you have the air blowing hatrd enough

Glue isn't really required and if you don't you will thank yourself when it comes time to replace. The alcohol or airblast methods both work well.
If you use glue, as posted, it won't dry so fast you can't get the grips on. Just glop 'em up and stuff 'em on. Of course alcohol or airblast will be counter productive, the glue will be all the lube you need.

I heard that works well for getting them off. I guess it would work both ways.
