Hey all! I was just curious. I installed my new new Kury grips this morning & I know it's been said that you have to cut off those little tabs but did any one have to beat the throttle grip on with a stick? It was a very tight fit. So tight that after the test fit I decided to put it on all the way without glue. Now it won't come off!:doh: The left side went on like described in the instructions. Actually alittle sloppy feeling. But good with the glue. Do you think The throttle will ge alright without glue? It's on there pretty frick'n tight! Thanks, I don't want it to give while riding.

Back when I rode a bicycle constantly, I replaced the grips without glue - didn't have an issue.

From the sounds of it you wouldn't be able to get the grips off anyways - so I personally wouldn't worry about it. I think the glue is more of a "backup".

FWIW, on my old bike I changed the handlebars and put the old grips back on the new handlebars. I didn't use glue and the grips didn't slip at all in 5-10 k miles(I don't remember how many miles I did after that before I sold her).

For me, the glue acted as a lubricant to get the right grip on. The left grip needed glue as it slid on the bar without it.

Sorry, I didn't bother with pics. I didn't really thing I needed them for this, but they look like this.
Thanks. You probably didn't need a pic for your original post. I was just curious what they looked like. Good looking grips. Comfortable?

Yes, the throttle side is very tight and once slid on, very difficult to adjust. I put my throttle side on without glue of anykind; I just used something liquid to help make it slide on easier.

The other side was a little loose so I use a layer or two of golf grip tape to help with that.
