Default Re: take a tip...leave a tip GRIP REMOVAL

I was reading Seattle Mike's thread with stinky gas 'n grip and it hit me I hadn't posted this tip that works great for me:

To remove stuck handle bar grips, use compressed air and a THIN silicone spray lube with a straw nozzle. I have a long pointy snout air pizzer. (Required)

First blast some air in, lift the grip on the interior side and let some air rip. Then spray some silicone lube in the same spot. Repeat both of these as you work the grip off.

Wash the grip and wipe the bar before reinstall.

Don't use a petroleum based lube or you'll have a smelly mess.
