wrongo buck-o I used hair spray on my grips and the left side came off when I was going up horsepower hill at Washougal Mx Park aka this moster of a up hill

4th gear tapped going up that, about 45+ MPH and having your grip come off isnt that fun!

45+ in fourth gear on an 85 ? no way unless you got some motor mods.
your bike only has 3 more cc's than mine , it cant make much of a difference. i would say mine runs about 35-40 in 4th gear considering just barely going on my bmx bike i go 20 mph (gps tells accurate speed)

Why would you use wd-40? No. Hair spray - Definitly no.

Too begin with only use grip glue.
Secondly the more you put on the easier it to slide on.
Third put safety wire on your grips so they don't move. You won't see any serious racer with out safety wire on there grips.

Why? As I said, Rubber Cement seems to bond grips more than adequately to the bars and is WAY easier to remove. Dried on grip glue is about impossible to remove without a sandblaster. Now I'll grant you that I've done very few sets myself with this method, but the gentleman who gave me the tip has done plenty and never had one move. I also don't pressure wash near the grip ends, but I wouldn't do that regardless of the method used to secure them as it is just asking to get water under them. Rain, mud, and such doesn't seem to effect it at all.

And the more of a pain it is to remove the glue residue when you change grips. That's the beauty of Rubber Cement; it's a breeze to remove when you change grips.

Perhaps, but I haven't found it necessary as of yet. Until I detect the slightest movement of my grips, after securing them with Rubber Cement, I'll leave the safety wire for securing fluid-retaining bolts on my road racing motorcycle.

Oh yeah, I don't safety wire the grips on my road race bike either.

Never use grip glue with any oil-based solvent. What are you thinking?

it worked. That's what i'm thinking, and there has been nothing wrong with my grips. you just spray so a little bit gets in. than u shake it so there is no puddle inside the grip, put the grip glue in and slide er on, works every time.
