I have presoaked them in hot water, and added soap to the water, then poured soap down the grip as well. Nothing...

I'm in close to 100.00 right now with all the money into grips and shipping... they are not stocked locally, so I keep having to order them.

Thanks,
Umm.... I used the "soft" version and lubed them up with simple green. Went on smooth and easy. Just cut them to size before I put them, sprayed the inside of the renthal's with simple green and on they went. Not problem.
