If i can fit some foam grips with my two left hands everybody can do it. I can't see why anybody wants to use something else but water. All the nasty oil and hairspray tips might work, no doubt but water is perfect for this job. Fitted some Grab Ons and some True Grips that way and i am sure i will have to cut both pairs loose with a knife if i ever want to get them off. They are not moving in any direction.

Bruce Lee said it: "Be water my friend." :)

I've used GT85 to fit a variety of grips and it seems to work very well. I use an old spoke to help remove the grips and if you're really worried about scratching the bars a wooden kebab
stick does the trick.
