Jeez you guys, the dip-sh....er,...guy asked a legitimate question and your telling him to drink Malt Likker and watch midget porn...





To remove old grip, jam a screw driver under the edge, squirt penetrating oil in there that you borrowed from work...



To instal new grip, wipe off the penetrating oil, soak new grip in gas for a minute or two, slide grip on in one smooth motion. You might want to leave your cigerette on the bench till you wipe your hands on the front of your jeans.

Seriously, I only used the rubber cement once many moons ago to put on new grips. Of course, the glue dried by the time the new grip was only half on and I had to destroy it and buy a second set. A trick a mechanic told me was to forget simply pour a little gasoline into the new grip. It slides on easily and the gasoline evaporates after a few minutes leaving the grip on nice and tight. I've used this method ever since and it works just fine.

Hair spray man, hair spray. Use Aqua Net. Squirt a little on the bar and the grip slips right on. After it dries, it sticks like glue. Being married has its advantages. Not many though!

I use Threebond Griplock for grip glue. When it dries it has a rubbery consistency. Works good.

Well I'm not married, I don't have much hair and the only stuff my daughters use is gel to make their hair stick up so I'm out of luck.



The nice thing about using gas is you can clean up any chain lube off the garage floor with whats left

I love maintenance threads. First, because I always learn some neat trick. And second, kpaul is nowhere to be found when people are talking about working on bikes.

Well, he's an Engineer! He has no need of Moto-Maintenance knowledge, he already possesses everything that CAN be known of Motos; it was implanted in his brain when he graduated from college (you know - back when he was an ass-kicker of homosexual basketball teams).



He never shares this knowledge with others; he took a solemn oath not to divulge the secrets of The Engineers, upon pain of Death.....

Now that you mention it he is rather conspicous by his absence. I guess I just treat him like white noise and don't notice him much anymore
