I recently installed hand grips onto my chief Dark Horse. Before doing so, I did tons of research online to find out the best way to do it. After all the time I spent trying to find tricks and tips this was the best way I could come up with. By the sounds of it the leather cord you get with the wraps is hard to use once you soak the wraps and they have a tendency to come lose over time. It was even recommended at the store to put a dab of Super Glue on the grip. So this is what I came up with. I went to a hobby store and got some waxed thread and some stitching needles. Looked on YouTube on how to cross stich leather. I than practiced on the wraps before soaking them. After I was comfortable I did the install and this is how they turned out. I have had them on the bike for about 2 months and they haven't moved at all and I ride just about every day. I love them so far.
