glue necessary for ourys?

I am setting up my new handlebars and before i go putting these grips on i wanna know- do you really need to put glue on the inside of them before you put them on the bars?

no. use a drip of water, a lot of brute force, and than let dry for a couple days.

I filled the sink with hot water, threw the Oury's in there for a little while, then slid them on with a bit of force. The water definitely helped, but it dries so they stay in place. I've heard rubbing alcohol works even better.

Soapy hot water, on inside of grips and bars, then let dry, which won't take long in this heat.

install dry, use compressed air
to slide them on.

or use wd-40 to slide
them on but be really fast. once they
stop they are stuck there forever.

with wd-40 you need to use a razor
to remove them


if you have chronic grip issues dig deep for the 12 bucks and
get lock-on grips. they never fail...and they come off when you
want 'em to

I got mine on with no brute force and no liquid. No glue, but when it's really hot and humid and I'm riding long enough to sweat right through my gloves, they start to move a little.

windex works well, but can take a few days to completely dry.

I just mounted some Ourys on a shot-peen finished bar - had to resort to spray adhesive finally. With smooth or painted bars, they should stick fine with no adhesive.

If you pull hard enough on your bars ourys are going to come loose. Whether you do or not is another issue. Also I'm pretty sure that the ODI ourys won;t fit around the bends on drops so glue is your only option.

hairspray is the cheapest option (or rubbing alcohol, or wd-40, or even white lightning chain lube works).

ODI ourys are nowhere near as soft as non-ODI oury's since they have a hard plastic liner. I use the ODIs but I wouldn't if the others weren't so problamatic.

The ourys lock on using the ODI locking system. I think they license it but they may be the same company these days.
