Heat Proof Grip Glue

Post by zeoran »



One of the first things I did after I got my 99 Aspencade last year was to put on the Oxford heated grips. I used the grip glue that came with those grips but every time I turn the heat up to its maximum setting, the throttle comes loose. I tried adding a drop or two of super glue, but that didn't make much of a difference.

Now, unless I heat them up to max setting, the throttle grip doesn't budge, so it's not easy to just take off/put back on. But what can you suggest that I can do/use to firmly seal that grip in place finally that's heat-proof? Especially something that can be added without having to completely take off the grip would be nice.

God bless,

Wow, I'm surprised that the super glue didn't do the job. Perhaps it isn't playing nice with the remnants of their grip glue?

I use this Loctite gel super glue:

It's easy to apply and smear (it's gel, so it doesn't drip everywhere) and it has never failed, even with heated grips.

available in 3 oz size, I guarantee it won't slip after using this stuff.

I bought it because a friend's car's sunroof is leaking, and she said "seal it up", I never use it anyway.
