Slipping / loose throttle grip?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by I'm Simon, Feb 4, 2009.

  1. On the ride to work the other day I noticed that the bike seemed to be losing power when I opened the throttle somewhat. After closer inspection it appears that the throttle grip (oxford heated) has loosend somewhat and is slipping on the throttle. I have put up with it for the last day or so but clearly this is dangerous, especially if I need to give the bike the go juice in a tight situation.

    Any ideas on how to fix this or is it simply time for new grips?
  2. Selleys make a nice glue which you put on each surface, (only use a bit) leave for about 20 minutes until each surface appears to be dry, and then stick them together; That sucker will never move again, but you'll have to be quick because you've got to slide it the full length of the plastic tube on the bar before it sticks forever :LOL:.
  3. I've used hairspray to hold grips for years, never had one come loose yet.
