Moving Grip Handle

Guys, I don't know if I'm in the right Forum, but here it is.
I have some problems with the left grip handle. It is loose and turns on the handle bar, which gives me a real unsafe feeling while riding. Question: should I go and buy a new set or is there a way of re-securing it to the handle bar?? Kim:rolleyes:

Hairspray is the hot setup. Take off the grip and spray the inside before re-installing.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Just make sure you give it a day, or so, to dry. The hairspray works like a lubricant when its wet but dries like glue.
