Remove your handlebar grips in just a few minutes with these tips.

Step 1: Remove plugs
Remove the handlebar plugs first. Then loosen the brake and shift levers and slide them toward the middle of the bar.

If you are not going to reuse the grip, cut it off with a utility knife.

Step 2: Slide screwdriver
Slide the screwdriver between the end of the grip and the handlebar and life up the grip. Then squirt a liberal amount of spray lubricant or rubbing alcohol into the space between.

Step 3: Wiggle grip
Wiggle and pull the grip out and away from the handlebar. Use an air compressor under the grip if you're unable to get it off.

Step 4: Install new grips
Install your new grips. Slide them over the handlebars the same way you slid the old ones off.
