Heat Resistent Grip Glue - any recommendations?

Greetings, I am new to this site, and am the new owner of a 2006 K1200S. The first thing I decided to change was the grips, they were worn and were a thin grip anyways. Went to the dealer and found out that the only way to replace them was to spend over $300 to replace the integrated heating elements and grip as it is all one unit. So I decided to strip off the grip, and replaced them with a gel pro grip. Love the grips, and they work well on the bike, only problem is that I cannot find a glue that doesn't break down when I turn on the heating elements.

I tried the following and they all worked great until I turned on the elements:

Soapy water
Renthal grip glue
Contact cement

I just picked up some honda pro grip cement which the dealer claimed had a high heat resistance, but after putting a blow dryer against a dried blob of this glue and the contact cement (to compare the two), they both softened up when warm, so I don't think I am even going to try the Honda glue, as I think it is just another type of contact cement that will again just turn to mush when hot.

Can anyone suggest a glue that would work for this application? Anyone done the same mod?

Thanks,

Cliff

Hi Temp silicone should work....The type that you would use for brake pad backing...really tough stuff and extreme heat resistance

Also High temp silicon used for boiler sealing 300 degrees C! Needs at least 48 hours to cure for full temperature resistance.

Something like this:

This maybe.......from Gorge Auto Supply of course.

But whatever you choose, try to read the TDS (Technical Data Sheet) first, lots of those products such as High Temp RTVs do not work well with rubber compounds.

3 Bond Griplock.

This is the same stuff I use to mount rubber grips over foil type grip heater elements on my KTM dirt bike for winter riding. Works awesome - just don't get it on your fingers as you will be wearing it for awhile.
