Pi Bar Assembly?

I’m trying to assembly Coker’s Pi Bar, but the handles just don’t seem to want to slide on… Am I supposed to hammer them on? Also, is there a specific type of grip you guys prefer to cover the handlebars? Has anyone tried an ODI clamp? Thanks

if you’re having trouble getting the bar-ends to slide on, insert a flathead screwdriver into the crevice that the pinchbolt passes thru(loosen the pinchbolt of course) and twist the screwdriver gently as you slide the barend over the end of the bar.

i just use the barends bare. i don’t think ODI lock-ons would work.

I think I had to do the screwdriver thing on the pair I had as well…
