Hairspray is what i use. Then lockwire the grips down just because.

For future reference Oury grips are excellent.

Haha, I get that it'll go on easier, my emphasis is that it stays on.

Nope.

Use hairpspray, brake cleaner (I think, check on that one.. might have been carb cleaner), or soapy water.

In order of dry time....
Brake Cleaner
Hairspray
soapy water.

, even just spit on them.

Once they are on, and whatever you used to put them on dries, they won't move.

Use the hair spray that is for holding your hair in place, not moisturizing hair spray. Soapy water also works, but takes longer to dry. If you have an air compressor, you can stick a needle used for blowing up basketballs between the grip and the handlebar and use compressed air to slide the grips on. This makes it a lot easier to remove and install grips.

Oh... you can also use the aerosol "canned air" that is intended to clean electronics.

Dunno if you'd find it worth purchasing for this, but I had some, so I used it. Comes with a tiny straw to stick in the grip, then hold the other end tight on bar and it'll blow up like a balloon and let you slide it around. Not as strong as a compressor, but it's nice to break the grip loose from the bars.

Thanks for the tips, I definitely should've consulted with my mh peeps first. Dude, the levers https://www.motomummy.com/levers/fp-...ort-lever-set/ I got them on cyber monday for 110 I think, and the grips were only 5 extra.
