Tried grip glue?

I recently bought a new set of grips because I wanted something plainer, I checked they were the right size and length and got them delivered but they won’t fit without modifying the switch block. I’ve now decided I’ll stay with what I have

I have those same grips. Didn’t have any grip glue so used blue Loctite and that did the job for me. Someone suggested to me to use Tarzans grip, but I’m to bloody old to go swinging through trees.

If you don't want to deal with grip glue, I use hairspay and that has worked great for me! When I remove the grips, I clean em up good with some Isopropyl alcohol, hit it with the hairspray and leave it overnight. Its quite forgiving, you don't need to be so exacting when setting the grips initially. They come off easy with a quick shot of WD40 and there is little to no residue left like you get from glues.

I've tried unsuccessfully to get my grip to stick. My bar end mirrors holds the grip from sliding off so I've gotten used to it.

Just wondering if your grips are 1” going onto 7/8” bars. If this is the case, this is why you can’t glue them. So if you clean the left bar to get rid of glue etc. Then get electrical tape ( your colour choice ) and wrap around until you think you have enough then try your grip.

I`ve used hairspray on several bikes and never had an issue.

If your left grip has set screws and is still slipping, you need to dimple the bar in at least 2 spots. Take the sets completely out of the grip, use a small hole punch through the set screw hole to mark the bars in at least 2 of the 3 places(I did all 3) then using a small drill bit , deepen your hole punch marks enough for the ser screw to seat down. Since I did this, absolutely no movement in my grip.
