Heated Grips Are Loose

I have a Deluxe 28, and the grips, which are Ariens grips that were installed by the dealer, came loose last winter.

The dealer never installed the screws, and the bars don’t have screw holes.

I would like to drill and tap screw holes. Should I? Any tips and hints?

I want to reglue the grips. I see suggestions for hair spray, slow set epoxy, black spray paint, and Honda grip glue. Which to use?

Can I wire the grips? That’s what I used to do with my Mountain Bike.

Thanks!!

I ordered the grip warmers kit from Ariens, the kit included some epoxy to attach the grips to the handles (Ariens "preferred" method ?).
Personally, I don't like to install replaceable parts "permanently".
I did not use the epoxy, I drilled holes in the handles and fastened the grip with screws.

I installed grips on my Deluxe 28 last week. The kit provided some epoxy adhesive and IMO, there really isn't enough quantity of adhesive to do the job, but I went with it. I'd like to see "good and plenty". Also, unless the person mixing the epoxy takes extra effort to do a thorough job, the epoxy will not cure properly.

The heated grips kit does not come with screws to drill and tap, but IMO, it'd be a good idea to drill & tap a couple of screws for insurance. I plan to add two screws to each grip for that "double darn sure" factor.

To remove the grips, you'll probably have to let them heat up and then slide them off. And to get them back on, you'll also heat them up.

To answer your question about wiring, (I assume you mean safety wire, like I do with my dirt bikes), I don't think you can do this effectively with these heated grips. The grips have a rigid plastic core which will not compress under the force of the safety wire.

Hope all this helps.

The adhesive with the kit is Loctite 608 hysol.

I ended up using a motorcycle hand grip glue from Honda. That's worked well for me. I think pop rivets were also used a while ago but they seem to have gotten away from that. I did pop rivet mine in place for added security/durability.
