What kind of Slip-On Grips do you? Are they open ended on both ends per 1 grip, or just a single with a closed end.

1) If you can find extras/etc, you can mount Lock-On "Jaws" or Clamps and simply mount them on each side of the grip. If you don't want the extra Grip length w/ the Lock Clamps, just cut down the actual grip to a smaller size. - I did this method for my previous ESI Grips. Although they wouldn't slip I didn't want to take any chances while DH'ing, so I just slapped on Lock-On Clamps on both sides of each grip. It's a great safety feature for Slip-On Grips.

2) Get really strong Bar Ends (not extensions), so in that way at least if your grips try to fall out, they can have that extra support.

3) Mount very strong Duct Tape on the bare Handlebar in three small stripes. Then mount. The added out-diameter should help grip and stretch the Slip-On Grips to become pretty solid on the Handlebar.

4) Glue. Enough said. Don't recommend unless you are gonna keep those Grips for the rest of your life.

5) Don't use Slip-On Grips. Actually don't use anything. Bare Handlebars are the new trend now... Seriously, try other grips if nothing else works out. ESI Grips are awesome, Lock-Ons are dependable.

Wiring them on works well too.

Yup been using it for years, sticks really well and doesn't wreck the grips or bars. Bit of wd40 and they come off easy.

Wiring is what many of the pro Dhers used to do. Get a thin piece of copper and put it just inside the inner side of the grip (closest to the brake/shifter)... twist it till tight and then twist it several more times with pliers... cut it VERY close and then smack the end into the grip... your hands should be nowhere near this anyway and it will not move..


Lock-on are the best now however... Even my Ruffians on carbon will never move...

Use rubbing alcohol to remove them and avoid the WD40 residue.
