I installed a set of pro grip gel grips and I used grip glue. Worked like a charm, it hasn't moved an inch since I've installed them before the season started (beg of June).

I would recommend just doing some safety wire, always works and is easy to do. I do not like grip glue very much.

Problem with safety wire is it looks dodgy... I don't mind hairspray, need to redo it every now and then but my wife has plenty of the stuff.

I agree with Nico, safety wire IMO looks a bit tacky and I don't like the idea of strangling the grip on the throttle tube. Worse case is you need to re-glue it every season not a big deal. For the price of them, I would just replace them with new (unless their D-3's) then deff the re-glue route.

ive been selling/installing grips among other parts lately and from what ive seen glue and hairsray works good but sometimes gums up from heat or moisture and lets the grip rotate if forced

ive been cleaning all the glue residue and using a little shot of spray paint in the grip then quickly rotating the grip into place which spreads the paint throughout the grip, the wet paint makes it slide on pretty easy and is dry and tight in just a few minutes!

sounds crazy but it works great and theres always some spray paint around!


yea yea yea, i know my cycle may one day get me killed..... but i get to ride it first!
