I just put a little dap of wheel bearing grease on the injector and made sure it was slippery. I would think soapy water would work as well if you are concerned about the grease on the seals. They slip in pretty easy though

do you mean to say @Stutz that you greased the cup around the O ring as you placed it into the head?

No, I used very little on the new injectors where it slides into the cup.
