my sprocket comes loose alot so i find myself tightening it a few times whenever its about to fall off but i am at the age to where i ride my bike till its almost falling apart before i replace a part. so if i am lucky i tighten it. i also need to replace my grips they are killing my hands.

I prefer Liquid Wrench. Spray it into the grip and slide it on; it's dry in five seconds.

don't get long necks get odi ruffian lock on grips they litterily slip on and you just tighten them with the two clamps screw in the supplied bar end and your good. better have a small hex key though.
