What's best to use? I have a set of grips that I need to glue on, but I have no glue that came with the grips. What should I use? And how much do I use?
Thanks!

Hair spray works well. just get the inside of the grip good and wet with it and slip it on.

What's this Grip Glue you speak of?
I've always installed them dry and cut them off when worn out. Never had one slip or turn on me.:?

Hair spray.

You should have seen the look on my neighbors face when I asked him if his wife had some hair spray when installing his grips for him!

Priceless!

You guys are nuts! Why in the world would I want to stick my $65.00 Kuryakin grips to my hair? I want them on my handlebars ok? ;)

Same here. If everything is nice and clean then no glue should be needed. If a grip isn't fitting tightly or somehow spinning and turning, then the grip isn't sized for the bar it's on.

Basically two grip sizes available here; 7/8" and 1". I forget the metric equivalent. 22.5 mm? Something like that. All HD's and some of the big, new metric cruisers are 1", all else should be the smaller 7/8".

I've redone about a dozen bikes this year, all with gel-type, soft rubber grips (the cheap ones, sub $10 grips) and used nothing but soapy water to get them on. Once on and dry, they were all but impossible to remove without destroying them somehow.

Remember - one is larger than the other internally for the throttle...

I've been through Black Widow, Grip Gripper, hairspray, rubber cement, etc. to hold my Kury ISO grips, all failed after time. I dropped by local custom build shop and asked what they used. Answer: Superglue!

Put it on over a year ago, holding great!

I'm with the no glue crowd, even on my dirt bikes. Course now that I said that I'll probably crash with grips in hand :) I can't think of a time were I had an issue though.
