    Glue for heated grips

    The oxford heated grip on my throttle has decided to part company with the throttle sleeve thingee itself, resulting in some unintentional spirited revving. What's the best glue for reattaching?

    Presumably this is just what you had lying around as apposed to a recommendation?

    Medium bond two part epoxy is what I've typically used, but even then with repeated/prolonged use it can still work loose. But to be fair it's lasted longer than the superglue type of stuff that normally comes with the hotgrips kit.
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    They usually say epoxy so araldite is what I use. Can get longer cure version which could be stronger than 5 min.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.

    Just my 5 cents worth, I've found araldite can go soft under heated conditions. I've had no such problems with loctite 401 glue, takes the heat and moisture just fine, great long term fix for many applications. No I do not work for Loctite lol

    Yes araldite, depending on the type you use, can also become very brittle over time and start to break up as well.

    IMO, you prob are better off with a glue that sets with a bit of give in it so can move with the pressure etc. araldite sets quite hard, and is an awesome glue for many things but you may be better off with one of the ados products. I say that cos you can get it in smaller amounts...

    I used to use F2 ADOS on plain grips which wet, works great, but my Daytona heated, said epoxy, so I complied like the good little bitch I am.

    A glue called "Grip Glue". Made for the sole purpose of what you are trying to achieve. Available from motorcycle shops when I last bought a tube in 2011.

    To get an epoxy to "set in 5 min" the manufacturers lose 75% of the strength. Something to bare in mind if strength is genuinely needed.
