Had some new grips put on at the shop. Also had added 3 wraps of tape to fatten up the grip a bit. As i watched the tech put on the 3 layers of ordinary masking tape (looked like, was not sticky), then pushed the grip on only an inch, removed the grip, added a small bit of solvent and jammed the grip on using a air pressure gun. Presto. The grips work ok, but how do they stay in place? Is the tape something special? Will they fail? Can such grips be removed easily in one piece?
Needless to say i am 'ole skool' and have cans of solvent and rolls of sticky tape in the shed.
