you've bought symtec grip heaters, and symtec recommends a specific grip glue, which you don't have. you want to know if yamabond grip glue will work? didn't the symtec kit come with adhesive?
The Symtec heaters don't need a glue to apply them. They have a self stick adhesive on the handlebar side of the element. Peel the paper off and apply the heating element around the bar tube like a bandaid.
I removed my OEM grips. I shaved off the ridges of the throttle tube with a razor blade to make it easier to install new grips. I installed Progrip, Gel-Touch grips. I purchased the recommended glue with the kit, (Scot's ski pole grip glue.....), but I DID NOT use it. My grips are tight and don't move or slip. Even when under high heat. Which is very rare. You will mostly use a "low" setting. You will love this addition.
