Default Grip Glue//Throttle lubricant

I'm about to replace my handlebars and grips on my Harley. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions as to what type of glue to use on the left grip. Also, what is the best lubricant to use on the throttle cables and throttle grip? Thanks.

Hair spray is good grip glue.

I usually use the Dupont http://www2.dupont.com/Consumer_Lubr...lubricant.html or dri slide http://www.drislide.com/ on cables. For the most part when changing grips, I will not use any glue. Just use a air compressor with a blow nozzle. Place tip under grip and work grip off when you give a burst of air. Use the same method to get new grips on. Works like a charm

I think I used just plain old rubbing alcohol on my last set of grips 3 years ago. Helped the grips side on and then it just evaporates.

Have heard hair spray works well.

Like Dave, I don't use glue. I used compressed air to "balloon" the grip off the tube and then use the same method for installation.
