Heated Grip Glue

I have an Ariens 28" snowblower that I put heated grips on, Ariens grips.

They work great but they have lost their bond and I have pulled them off while jockeying the snowblower around.

I believe they came with epoxy to install them.

Any tried and true methods that will keep my grips in place?

Re: Heated Grip Glue

I don't know if it applies, but a trick we use on bicycle grips is hair spray.
It lubes a bit to slide the grip on more easily and then sets. It is water soluble.

Bill,

I wonder how the heat would affect it.

I have heated grips on my snowmobile but they were factory installed.

I also looked at snowmobile sites but it seemed like they were a heated element that wrapped around the handlebar and the grip slipped over it.

Hmmm

LOL, yeah, I may be aging myself but I remember the ape hangers, the raised ram horn. Lived in Phoenix, as a kid, your bike was your world.

I discussed this with a coworker that has a similar Ariens, ask if I scuffed up the bars before installing the grips.

I Did Not

Re: Heated Grip Glue

Gorilla glue. Should be good up to about 160 F if I'm not mistaken. Cures with moisture, incredibly strong. Basically the isocyanite component of a urethane system. I swear That crap will bond anything to anything.


Overkill.
I love overkill.

Re: Heated Grip Glue

I ordered some heated grip glue for snowmobiles from Dennis Kirk, hope that does the trick.

I'll scratch up the bars a bit also.

Ordered me a Klim balaclava too, those things amaze me how warm they are.
