Ive had this, the internal diameter of your handle bar is to narrow for the plugs, get a knife out and thin the plugs.

ok thanks for that buzz, has been driving me crazy Big Grin

on a review kind of note, these grips feel amazing ... and at £6 you cant really go wrong, such a step above normal grips that end up spinning around in the wet  8)
