    Alcohol installed grips almost killed me 6 hours later in the alleycats and inspired this thread. Have tried water and it's been even worse. Takes too long to evaporate if you actually intend riding the bike in the near future.

    This stuff evaporates instantly, removes all grease and creates some kind of underpressure thus really sucking the grips onto the bar. Try it or some similar product next time and you'll love me.

    p.s. bel-ray people, you can start flooding my address with free samples now thanks.

    We use air in the shop, as it gets it on instantly and you never have to worry about the grip slipping..

    they will never come off unless you want them to.

    a) For real, who can use air in their apartment?
    b) Why do you have hairspray? You metro.
    c) Brute force is just wrong. Like prison sex wrong.

    Sam why would you choose 24 hours over 5 mins?

    This thread was supposed to be locked and made a sticky.

    Assuming that fg/ss riders are all renters? I know lots of people that have a modest air compressor in their households, mang. Air compressors are the bomb for so many odd jobs.

    I am sitting here thinking, Oury's + Brake & Contact Cleaner = Bush and scratching my head wondering why the OP would say it is the end all and then tell us it is bush. I missed that "mission accomplished" sign at first. Just thought I would share how slow I am on Mondays.

    I am surprised alcohol took so long to evaporate.

    well, according to the OPs picture logic, using his method to put on grips claims to work prematurely and will still not have dried out properly several years down the road after several broken teeth from the grips sliding off all of a sudden. Soon the grips will be splintered apart into new, smaller grips ready to be annexed by neighbouring grips.

    You can use a can of keyboard duster instead of an air compressor as well... We are all probably more likely to have that than whatever chemical it is you use. Also if you're going to go out and buy a can of something it may as well be multipurpose (ie. able to clean your keyboard as well).

    Are you saying you guys voted a ******** gas dealer to run your country? Now why would you do that?

    Actually if this stuff wasn't so extremely multipurpose, I wouldn't probably had posted this at all. It kills the bugs and I even put it on my serial.
    I wasn't s-kidding about those free samples, Bel-Ray. I'm running out of this sh1te so ship it.

    Well the fact that this stuff can be used as an effective poison pretty much completely closes the door on me using it. Thanks anyways though.

    How, exactly, does one use compressed air to mount grips? Especially air in a can? I like the sound of it (cheeeep and not messy) but I can't visualize the process.
