There is also the way with gas instead of hair spray. just swish some gas in the grips then dump out and pour a little on the bar and they slip right on like a dream and then let sit for about 15 min to let the gas evaporate and your ready to go

I've been away from dirt bikes for awhile, but I always used the gasoline method myself, with excellent results.

If you like adhesive, though, the best I've found (You don't dump gas in custom grips for a Harley) is called GripLock.
One caveat: It smells like warmed over death and will stay with you for days if you get it on your hands.

Stay Dirty,
Dave

i have bad luck with grips and glue (i tend to drop the bike a lot). I have tried the honda brand, scotts, renthal all with the same out come and that is slippy grips. I tried pvc glue witch worked much better but not 100%. the safety wire, 16awg i believe, with the pvc glue worked best. my new barkbusters will help to.

Where does one get "slow-set" super glue?

The folks at the store look at me like I'm nuts. "Slow set" and "super glue" generally don't go together.

I'm not aware of any... slow set means, you put the grip on FAST as possible.

Good point Motoman. Safety wire is the bomb no doubt about it.

Then what was hondageek talking about with this statement:

Quote:
I've run a big bicycle shop for about 12 years and I've installed THOUSANDS of grips. The absolute best adhesive to use is a slow set superglue.
I can safety wire them if I have to (I've done plenty of safety wiring on my road race motorcycle), but I'd rather glue them on to be honest.
