Should cut them I went and bought new grips today only 15$ from a proper store you could get them so much cheaper eBay/amazon etc...I'm looking to put some new grips on my 300 but don't want to cut the grips off and don't have an air compressor. Are those the only 2 options to changing the grips?
Always better off cutting the old and installing new, especially when they are so cheap (renthal grips are by far my favorite).
have you had any issues with the grips slipping at all with the use of hair spray?I used a long thin screwdriver and worked it all the way around the bar to break the glue loose and a shot of WD-40. Only takes a little bit and it slipped right off.
Used hairspray on the new grips. That give it some lube to go on the bar and some sticky to stay there when it dried.
Wish I would've seen this sooner about the impact driver or torch. I've stripped the head on one screw and I'm not going to even attempt to touch the other one!I used windex and a screwdriver to remove my grips, and then hairspray when putting the new grips on. You definitely don't need to cut them!
Just beware you're going to need an impact driver (or a torch) to get the bar ends off.
Oil sounds just a bit too scary for me
I think I will stick with what Kairus said about the windex
that's awesome! But heres another question. If I am going to be putting on clip-ons with new grips, do i still need to take of the old grips on the old bars?"eucalyptus tree oil" doesn’t leave any residue, its not an oil as such, its perfect for cleaning oil & sticky goo from sticky tape
they are native to Australia & this stuff is magic kit
go down about 1/2 way down the page & read about the "eucalyptus tree oil" & what its for
aussie's have been using it for generations
