    Default new grip install

    I am trying to install the karyakn iso grips.
    when i slide the grips on the rubber inside the grip
    wants to roll up. Any suggestions on how to get
    the rubber to stay in place?

    Default no not really

    I bought the one with the tube but the grip
    pretty much fell off the tube so i am trying to
    get in on the oem tube because with
    the tube that came with the grips the throtle
    wont return.

    If I remember right I twisted the grip on instead of just pushing it on. Hope that makes sense.

    Have you tried spraying the inside of the grip with water and soap, then slide it thru.

    What glue, once the tube is inside, there's nothing else to do. I have never seen the throttle tube "fall" out of the grip. It should have already been secured inside it.

    When i mounted the tube and twisted the grip it came off the tube. So now i am trying to get it glued back on. All i did wast twist throtle so it wasnt like i had vice grips turning it.

    Send them back for defects and get a new set. If you end up screwing them up, they'll be no good and you'll have to buy another set.

    Well, just becareful trying to glue the tube back in. You have to get it in in one try w/o stopping. Otherwise the tube will stop half way in and you'll be f**ked Some ppl have used hairspray, it will act as a lubricant on the way in and dry like a glue. Worth a shot and it won't ruin anything if it doesn't work.

    Lol T don't hate. I didnt see you offer up any suggestions. Luck had nothing to do with it. Useful knowledge did.

    By the time I even got to the thread it was already answered. Useful knowledge? Whatever. Mostly your advice is useless knowledge.

    next time, you can also try blowing compressed air between the grip and bar.
