grip glue for dirtbikes FTW

does anyone use safety wire on sportbike/cruiser grips?
I have to on my cr and my 250r, but burn thru grips quick so I never use grip glue, but that shit works well!!

I've used alot of different brands of grip adhesive, and the one that has always worked the best for me is the "Honda" brand. Make sure you clean the surface off good and don't put any glue on the bars, only in the grip itself otherwise you'll be fighting it.

Funny how a simple thing like that can make a difference. That is why I ask so many questions. Someone almost always has a better way of doing it.

theres always the air compressor trick to help get them on too, not sure if it'd spit the grip glue out, doubt it.. but anythings possible
