No matter what grips I use, I get really bad throttle grip to the point where they rip!
With or without gloves, still happens. Longnecks tore. Coalition Rochesters tore(only mentioning them because of how thick they are). My bars are the same O.D. as my old Animal Scerbo bars at the grip area and this never happened, even with the same bars. There's nothing getting under the grips. The paint is scuffed up and was cleaned with alcohol to remove any paint flakes still hanging on.
Is there anything I can do to stop this because my current grips have a lot of life left in them aside from the giant, vulva looking gash in the right one.

I've used hairspray before but it didn't stop the twist at all really; it may have even made it twist more at times.
I'm afraid I may have to try using grip glue...

Air Compressers work the best.

I mixed dawn dish soap with a little water to make a super soapy mixture and there's zero throttle grip. Give it a try. If not, grip glue is your best bet.

I use the hairspray method, but you cant use too much or it wont dry. If they still wanna spin after sitting a day, stick a small screw driver under the grip to help the hairspray dry up.

about the grip glue? If not, I did the dawn dish soap on my grips a few months ago, and after accidentally left out in heavy rain still not the littlest bit of throttle. they don't even slide if I try to make them. GFYS

Air compressor if you have one because with no lube there's no chance of throttle grip , just make sure to wipe the bars with an alcohol based product to get any small bits of muck off that will cause throttle grips , i used a cheap window cleaner on mine and it works great.

Personally, i use anti-perspirant deodrant. it dries extremely quick and i havent had a grip move on me yet smile Right guard's a good choice. Only downside is when you take grips off you have a nice smelling residue, but it easily comes off smile Hope This Helped!!

use zipties... to get them out pull them out by hand or pliers. then their would be no throttle.

with an air compressor no lube is ever in between the grip and the bars. only downside is because the grips is not glued onto the bar, if it gets wet it comes a little loose, but then dries after and works good.
