maybe PM should try a different glue

my bike sat outside all last night in the cold rain because i forgot my elcheapo bike cover on my weekend trip.

when i went to start it up this morning to bring it under the front door awning of the hotel it felt like it was in limp mode. i was twisting the throttle but the engine was barely reving and no check engine light was on.

i felt the pit in my stomach as i was thinking what i was going to have to go through to get my bike fixed on a rainy sunday for my trip back home.

i parked under the awning, turned my bike off, and as i was getting off i pulled the throttle grip right off its sleeve.

i think performance machine (roland sands design) should think of using a better glue. these grips arent cheap.

From the looks of the background of the pix you've made it home. That's a good sign. What did you do, ride it home without the grip cover?

My HD Edge Cut grips did the same thing. I just took it off, scuffed the tube down good with sandpaper and super glued it back on.

My first two PM grips pulled off the sleeve on the throttle side right after install. Third set is going ok so far. But if it happens with this set I am done with them.

This is my thread on the issue.

Performance Machine = Sketchy quality???

thanks for the link. after reading that i think i'll put my HD aileron grips back on. i'm glad it happened to me in the parking lot and not going down the road at 70 mph.
