Counterintuitive though it might seem, aerosol WD-40 spray lubricant is our chemical of choice for installing Biltwell molded TPV grips. "But it's oil!" you say. Yes, but WD-40's combination of aerosol propellant and organic-based lubricant is perfect for sliding tight grips onto clean metal tubes. A quick 1- or 2-second blast into the open end of the grip is all it takes. Once installed, WD-40's chemical compound melts the grip interior just enough to make it stick to the bar like glue, without the mess. IMPORTANT: Wait 24 hours after installation before riding to give grips sufficient time to set up on the bars. Immediately after installation you can add safety wire wraps to both ends of the grips; this old motocross trick works great to reduce grip slip on the bars and throttle tube.

I bought these grips for my 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan S, because the stock OEM grips were too small in diameter, leading to cramping on long rides. These grips do indeed have a larger diameter, and are more or less 'barrel-shaped', which puts the largest diameter near the center of the grip. Installation was, as expected, a bit difficult, but I had the advantage of having watched a number of YouTube videos showing how to do it... I consumed lots of WD-40 in the process. Since these are generic grips intended for application on a wide variety of bikes, they're not a 'perfect' fit. The grips are shorter than the OEM ones, and I was forced to cut off the closed end to accommodate the stock Kawasaki end caps... which leaves a modest gap between the end of the grip, and the end caps. I don't particularly mind that, though. The surface of the grips are an aggressive diamond pattern, which is a bit too sharp for my taste... but won't be a problem when wearing gloves.
