I use spray lacquer to bond grips to the bars/throttle tube. Let them sit overnight stuck on tight! Works great no need to wire them but I guess for piece of mind you can. Cheap and easy!

I use pro taper glue which is basically super glue but I used to put street bike grips on dry with compressed air. I wonder if that would work on a dirt bike.....?

On dry with compressed air, and then tie them down. No problems here

The lock on grips are really great too. Just slip them on and lock then down with a small bolt.

Works for me, and easier to remove if you don't like cutting the old ones.

Best,

Blow them on with the compressor and safety wire them. Easily removed and reinstalled later on. They also stay put.

Brakecleen and safety wire....melts them just enough and the wire is an added security. They still come off easily if you split them with a razor.

Some people like 125s more than anything, others hate them. I noticed that people who ride poorly hate 2 strokes, especialy 125s, and those who ride good like them.
