Hair spray
« on: January 06, 2016, 10:23:00 pm »
So i'm not sure if i heard it here or on the web someplace, but 2 years ago i heard about how back in the day guys used hairspray instead of grip glue, so i tried it when i first out grips on the yz250 when i got it. They were on there for a year and a half, in every condition imagineable, no wire, and never once loosened. Tight as a drum, and left almost  no residue when i removed the grips last weekend to put
new ones on. Forget that expensive grip glue that always loosened on me, hairspray is the way to go. I rough up the bar clean with alcohol and then spray a bunch in the grip and on the bar. Less mess too.

I will try that. However, I doubt anything works with my death grip

Oh i have death grip. Didn't budge 'em. I had spidee grips on there. Going back to the pillowtops. I didn't like the feeling the spiders had when wet and muddy, i think the pillows were tackier

I haven't tried that one.

I've tried the spray paint, spray glue, and jizz.  Ok maybe not that last one, yet. :)

But all of them move with my death grip, so maybe I need to try hairspray.

I would bet liquid nails works good too.

if you dont wire your grips they will spin, no matter what you use..  I have a can of clear spray paint that I have used for over ten years.  What ever you are putting on the grip is mostly just to help it slide on.  Once the grip is on, the wire pinches it down and keeps water out.  Water is the main cause of spinning grips.
