I've tried everything, nothing holds them. As soon as it gets hot it turns to gel. And everything has been good for 250*

Ive always just used 2 part 5 min epoxy with no problems, are thay actual hot grip brand? I find with those a layer of electrical tape on your bars helps, makes thenm hard to put on but its a much tighter fit.

These are the actual hot grips. I tried the 5 min epoxy, it uncured once they got hot. I think the JB weld is the best solution. Its about hardened and I couldnt budge them when they were heated up. I cant believe how hot they get. They get over 160 degrees on high.

Generic hot grips? I didn't think they could be made any cheaper then these?!

I used good old fashioned Super Glue on mine and not budged yet.. in much use over here in the UK at the moment as the average temp over the last three weeks has been -10 Degrees.:eek:

I'm not sure how much Hotgrips are but I paid about $33 for each set for my quads. I think Westen or something like that made them but I can't find it in a Google search but came up with these which are very similiar. Mine just have a Hi/Lo single button to change settings and have worked flawlessly the dozen ++ times I've had to use them.
