Some hairspray will never dry because it has oils in it. I had some trouble with it but it's all clean. The best way is to get some 99% USP (oy whatever you have) alcohol, and spray it inside the grip, it evaporates in less than 5 minutes and grips go on easy!

yeah but cleaning the oil off is a little harder than you think, not to mention time consuming if you want to go ride right away.

or zipties, you slide the grip on with zipties on on the inside of the grip, because plastic slides on metal quite well and you pull the zipties out once the grips are on and you will be ready to ride instantly

Block up one end of the bars, and ziptie an air gun thing into the grip. Put a little of the grip on, then put a little air in so that the grip puffs us a little and slide it on.

or just stick it in the end of the grip and hold it down so the air comes out and push it on. it makes the grip expand making the grip go on easy as pie.

The air compressor is the best, than there's spray paint, and than WD 40.

Or zipties.

1 spray of spray paint, slide on grip. Reapeat on grip 2. They are dry before you can put the paint away and only come off if you take them off. Best way I have ever used...and that is a ton of ways.

WD-40 Inside the grip then slide on works wonders.
