I remember back in the day when Oakley made the best BMX grips in the business. They don't make those anymore. Just sunglasses.

Well, the Lesche is a great tool itself, as is the Sampson T, but I think this new grip will only improve the Lesche. Thanks again, Icansmellgold !

My Son was a Motorcycle Racer. The first thing you need to replace on a bike is the Bars. Of course you then add new grips. Solution is a small squirt of Lacquer Clear Paint. Notice I said small quick squirt. Slide your Grip on quickly and gently. Let it dry for about an hour and it will require you to cut it off. If you need to take it off,

When I was riding motorcycles, we used to smear the handlebars with glue and then put some gasoline in the grip and slide it on. The gasoline then evaporated. That was years ago. I'm sure there are better ways now.

That's basically how grips are put onto golf clubs (yep, good old gasoline & double sided adhesive tape)
