I usually adjust my grips with axe spray when they ride in but honestly they slide in every 2 sessions and it pisses me off. This time i used water but idk if it'll work bc i am getting slight throttle grip. How can i keep this shit locked tight without grip glue LOL

Not joking, try spray paint. They slide in easy and stick awesomely when dry.

Clean your bars well so that there's no dust ot dirt between the grips and bars causing it to slide.

I use rubbing alcohol. Slide in perfectly and
dries up quick.

Hair spray is great, but slips off when it rains (so if you are in the street and it starts raining, go somewhere dry or your grips will fall off and you will find yourself with your ass on the pavement).

Spray paint works super great but it can be a real pain to take it off, and if you have chrome bars, you have a chrome problem.

The best method is to use good ol' water and a bit of soap.

Just take your grips off, and give them a good inside wash. Same for the bars. Just make the contact area as clean as possible. So clean you could eat off it.

Try microvaving your grips for a few seconds. Interesting to see what happens.

When your grips are hot to the touch (not warm, HOT), put a few drops of water on your bars. Make it wet. Wet the inside of your grip too. Then, slide the thing in as fast as you can and as good as you can. It’s better to do this after your session and when you store your bike for the day. Go to sleep, and watch all the edits there are to watch on youtube.

The next day, if the throttle grip persists, put your bike in the sun. Cover it and just expose the grips. In a few hours (or minutes, it depends on the sun), the throttle thing will go away.

Then, take an icecream, stick it in your ass, and go ride !

It doesn't matter where a train goes. It's decidin' to get on that does.

I've put a small piece of electrical tape around the bars and slid the grips over it works.

Hey, old grips stick like wax on a hot day.


Dood, get some new grips if yours are super old. Then use the techniques described above, then you will ride trouble free, man.

Spray paint. Seriously. Hairspray is a joke

I use hooker spit. The AIDS is bad but the throttle is worse. It's really more of a statement than anything.

Hairspray works great.

But hairspray does not come free.

Water does.

What is cheaper?

Those little rubbing alchohal pads in like first aid kits you just rub some on ure bars put the grips on and let the alcohol evaporate then its metal to rubber works every time for me

I hate my grips moving at all. Like even the little unperceivable twist that results in the grip pattern not lining up drives me insane.

So last time I bought grips, I spent the $2 and got ODI grip glue. It works great. my grips don't move at all.

However, I kinda think it's just rubber cement.

Hairspray dries tacky.

Water does not.

Water under grips in my experience causes throttle grip.

Rubbing alcohol works well too.

And let's be honest, many of us have a family member who uses hairspray. Or if you don't, spending 2 bucks on a cheap can that lasts 5+ years of grip installs is not a big deal.

Really anything that dries tacky, if it has alcohol it will dry pretty fast.
I have also used longer zipties to slide the grip on the bar (totally dry) and then when the grip is in place I remove the zip ties.

The Zip tie trick is easy to do and everyone always has zip ties lying around. Google it, its the only was I put my grips on now and I have zero issues.

I use the same technique with 4-5 spokes. It's flawless.
