Glue recommendations

The rubber trim around the eye port is coming loose on my dirt bike helmet. It's a Scorpion. What glue would you recommend for re-attachment. Rubber or vinyl to fiberglass?

You could try Shoe Goo. It's a urethane based cement good for gluing the rubber soles of athletic shoes back on. It should work on vinyl.

There's also a cement called E6000, available at hardware stores, that works well in joining dissimilar materials.

I used some industrial glue I had in the gun for the loose pieces on my Skorpion helmet. Used the same stuff on my loose hand grips too..
Locktite premium urethane adhesive.

E6000 is great. Amazing Goop II Max is similar and also great.
