Grip Glue

What does everyone like? I have a set of Oxford heated grips, they recommend basic superglue to keep them in place. I had that fail for the second time now and am looking for something better.... I realize it may be an issue due to expansion when they're on and I may have to re-glue them every now and then but if there's something better I'm open to suggestions.

I used hairspray the one time I had to remove my grips. They haven't moved in 8 years. Not sure if the issue is more complex with heated grips.

Decades ago, 1970s that is, a trick I was taught was contact cement on bar, wet the grip with contact cement cleaner (or acetone), then slide on the grip real fast and don't let it stop until it registered home where you wanted it.
A grip stuck part way meant an aggravating level removal, clean the ID of the grip, and start all over again.
It was pretty effective.

I find the clutch side is the worst to keep fixed in place.
Been using Renthal grip glue for the last number of years.
Sometimes I have found using some hockey or surgical (must be woven cloth variety) tape in length wise strips on the bar, then the gluing, has worked well.

Thanks for the suggestions! The tolerance between the grip and bar is very tight to start with so there's not much time to place the grips in the proper position as it is... Guess I'll just have to redo it annually.... Or, use the glove liners...

I have the same problem on the oxfords on my dr650. after every ride i need to re-twist it back around, if I don't then the wires hit on the handlebar or cables and my throttle is stuck open.

+1 on hair spray. I get the super cheap stuff without all the 'eco friendly' stuff in it (read full of chemicals). When it dries it's plenty tacky but you can still remove the grips with ISO alcohol if you need to.
