yeah i figured that (not trying to sound like a wise azz) i was just wondering if there was something else. well back to lubing them up. what would you use? i was thinking lithium grease or does someone have a better suggestion?

thanks

I use dish detergent. Grease or wd-40 can damage rubber and how do you get it out once the grips are installed? With detergent just wash your bike and it's gone.

hairspray works extremely well in my opinion, it is super slick and then dries nicely.
