Yup. You can also use perfume, brake cleaner, gasoline, grip glue, rubbing alcohol, soda, beer, vodka, spit, lemon juice, etc.

If it's not a lubricant, it will work.

blow them on with a compressor airhose. Cup your hand over the end and it expands the grips just enough for them to slide on.. or just use a dab of liquid soap and pop your palm on the end a few times. I hate grip glue. safety wire those bad boys

Wait a second, I just realized exactly what type of thread this is. Will we have a "how do I put gas in the bike" thread tomorrow?

if youve never done it before, use a liquid method. you wont get it just right unless you know what youre doing with the air compressor.(ie harder to make adjustments)

Hi
I succeeded to put them on with soapi water but the left grip remains with free sliding. The real problem is the metal tube.

Let it sit overnight and it should steady out.

If not, aircompressor to take it off and try hairspray.

I've always been successful using just water and NO soap. If you would have just used water, it would have all evaporated in like a day or less. the soap will eventually dry up or evaporate enough that the grips won't move anymore so it's nothing to worry about.

OP I understand your pain. The aluminum rings on the grips makes it extremely difficult to install the grips especially on the throttle side. The use of soapy water allowed for an easy installation on the left side, but I'm still having trouble with getting the throttle side installed with out distorting the rubber part of the grip.

hairspray worked for me, you do have to file down the lip on your throttle tube to get that side to work correctly

You're not serious, are you? It's a little piece of rubber over a metal bar. Nothing would ever make it difficult to remove or install.

Yeah, but it gets all sticky after, and I'm not referring to your love juice.

That's what screwdrivers and/or razor blades are for. Ever take grips off of a bicycle or put them on?

all you do is cut the length of the grip with a razor blade, probably easier and less effort to get a grip off than it is to put gas in the bike

The throttle side of my D3 grip was a nightmare to fit. No matter how lubricated the grip/throttle tube was, there just wasn't enough clearance with the metal collar (that doesn't expand at all). I ended up having to file the inside of the collar, to muscle it in.

I have installed/taken off my D3 grips maybe half a dozen times and I never had any issues. I took a can of lube and sprayed the inside of the grips, sprayed some on the handlebars and a little under the metal collar (the big one), take off the smaller collar first. Reason for spraying some under the metal collar is so when you twist the grips in, the metal won't grip the rubber and tear it. For the throttle side, I took a dremel and just shaved off the part sticking up, take some sand paper to smooth it out after and repeat steps you used on the left side. I personally didn't need any glue or hairspray to keep the grips on, they were fine after a couple minutes of self-drying, or use a hair dryer. If you need to though, just use a flathead, gently stick the flathead in so you don't rip the rubber and lift up the grips and just spray a little hairspray on it. Hope this helps.
