I've never used any aftermarket grips because I never had any trouble with the stock ones. Is there a huge difference in comfort?

Smooth, try the Odis, I swear you will never use anything else. They are much softer and a bit larger in diameter so they fit bigger hands better.

I have used an assortment of grips, and they are all different. It depends on preference, but I prefer smoother grips that are a bit softer. The stock grips for some reason always tend to grip into my hands excellent, but leave callases (which I dont mind, I grew up on a farm throwing hay and stuff, but when they are the liquid kind and pop, it sucks huge especially when getting muddy and stuff). I am using these on the xx http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...lebars-Control&webCatId=12&prodFamilyId=17906. They are pretty comfy and soft. The stock ones always have the squares in them, which is what causes my problems. It is something I can tolerate, but comfort for a few bucks to me is worth it.

If the grip is still off, clean up the bar really really good, and soak the grip in hot water (try not to put it on the inside of it), that way it will expand, and then try to slide that baby one. IDK what people use, I use both grip wire and glue.

Nope, dont soak it, just use some fine sanding paper and sand the knurled side just a little bit and it will go on easily.

I just soak mine in hot water, w/ out getting water inside of the grip, and it goes on and shrinks right onto it.

The lockons too? They have solid plastic all around the inside.

never tried the lockons I guess. I am talking about just regular rubber grips. I never used ODI's, so I guess that may be differet.
