Maybe that's the lesson here... I've actually never had a grip slip on me. I just replace then every 3-4 years because they wear. Cheap grips it seems don't slip. I use clear spray lacquer (kinda like hairspray eh?) and when the grip gets worn I cut it off with a razor blade and put on a new one.

Likely helps to get the right size too. If your grips are really slipping that much you might be holding them too tight.........

Guess it depends on the style of grip too. Moulded rubber grips have a harder time slipping it seems. Metal grips with rubber inserts inherently have more movement because they have more parts. Micro movements caused by vibration will break the adhesive free.

After i got my kury grips i havent had them slip on me once.

I bought a set of grips when I bought the bike and used the grip glue that came with them on the left side, and so far it hasn't moved. I know it's going to be major surgery to get it off when I need to replace them. The right side I had to buy another barrel because when I tried to get the grip on it busted the plastic all to pieces.
I'm going to hunt around and find a metal barrel to replace it when I do replace the grips.

I was surprised how well it worked myself. Time will tell how well it holds up but they seem pretty snug.
