this may seems like a silly question.

i just bought a KCNC EVA grip and i dont know how to install the end plugs. they seems to be too big for my Ritchey Superlogic flat bar (31.8 ). can i just cut off the lower part and superglue the top onto the grip end?

and also how do i remove or adjust the grip position? coz once i put it on it seems like its would just stuck there forever.

If I remember correctly, the KCNC end plugs are slightly larger than most and require quite a bit of force, but you just force it inside the handlebar. You can use a rubber/plastic mallet if you absolutely can't get it in.

Just get some cheap plastic road bar caps. Weighs almost nothing...

I just use a sharp knife to cut 4 small triangles out of the 'webs' so they can fold over more when you push them in.

KCNC haven't fitted in any of my bars off the shelf.
