With a very sharp knife, just slice the old ones off. With your new ones, put some soapy water inside them, and push them on, the water will dry up, and the grips will hold firm.

Replace handle grips


Need to be more specific. If it's removing the grip from the bar then I've found that using air works the best. Take your air nozzle on a compressor and put it on the back side of the grip and it will inflate it enough for u to work it off the bar.

What's the best way to change handle grips on a 1972 honda ct90


assuming you have bought yourself a pair of rubber grips, with a sharp knife cut through the grip to remove it clean away any old glue, replenish glue onto grip and handle bar and simply push back on to handle bar quickly clean away any unwanted glue, remember to check you new grips for internal diamiter these will be different sizes, with smallest bore grip going on the left handlebar, and the larger on the throttle twist grip, if you have bought honda original parts then the twistgrip side may be a complete unit , in which case you would need to undo the 2 screws that hold the rhand switch gear together, and twist the grip in the opposit direction to what you would do when you ride it to remove it from the bendix throttle system, replace in opposite manner using a small amount of grease inside the metal sleve,

How to change foam on handles


See if you can unscrew the handle bar first.
Then search for replacement foam online, maybe on ebay or bugaboo website.
And when you have bought the replacement foam grips, you can take a look here to see how to attach them yourself.

I want to replace the handle bar on my 2007 Honda CRF100. Where is a good place to buy the part and how do I rempve the grips?


Hello, Ebay would be a good place to look for them! Can get them Way cheaper there! Here is the trick to getting stuck grips off a bike without ruining them! Use Compressed air to remove them. Take the hose of air compressor 125PSI with a Blow gun attached to it. Now on the Flanged part of the grip put the blower end between the grip and bar and hit it with air. If it does not fly off gently twist the grip and it will most likely come right off! Here is another trick! Put them on in the reverse manner! To keep them in place I use Hair Spray Like Finalnet. It makes the grips go on easy and when it dries it will hold the grip on like Glue! Have a Good one!!

If you loosen the wire that is connected to the gripping machanism first , you will have long enough wire to put it throu the brake grip first then tighten it back at the wheel gripping area.

Installing handlegrips


Instructions Difficulty: Easy Things You’ll Need:
  • Razor blade OR Air compressor
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Glue cleaner
  • Soft cotton towel or cloth
  • Warm water
  • Pro taper grip glue
Step1 Decide which method you want to use to remove your old motorcycle grips. There are three methods in which you can use. The quickest would be with a razor blade. However, if you fear scratching the chrome or wires are underneath the grips, this may not be the best choice. An air compressor can help slide the motorcycle grips off with ease. However, if they are attached with adhesive, you may need to loosen the glue. A flat-head screwdriver may be your best bet with wires and glue. You can ease the screwdriver between the grip and the bar and pry it up gently without cutting wires or damaging the chrome. Step2 Pop off the bar end of the motorcycle handle. With a flat-head screwdriver, this should be simple. Be careful not to damage these pieces. The threads must be in tack to put them back on. If they become damaged, you will need to replace them. Step3 Using the desired method in step 1, remove the old motorcycle grips. Step4 Clean the old glue from the handle. This can be accomplished with any type of glue cleaner and a little elbow grease. When the glue has been removed, dry the handlebar completely with a soft cloth towel. Step5 Soak your new motorcycle grips in warm water to loosen them up a little bit. This will make it easier to install the grips quickly. Step6 Use your grip glue. You will want to add this around your handlebar where the grip will be placed. You will want to do this one side at a time. There are several methods that are recommended for this task. However, Pro Taper Glue seems to be the most recommended. Step7 Slide the motorcycle grips on each side. When they were soaked in warm water, it will be simpler to slide them on. Again, do one side first, then the other. Step8 Remove the excess glue and water with your cotton towel. This will clean up any mess left behind and give your motorcycle a pristine look. Step9 Let the glue dry for at least a couple of hours. The recommend time can be found on the glue of your choice. Step10 Replace the bar end gently. Be sure to screw it in until it cannot pop off again.
