Heated grips loosening up
I had a local shop install a set of Koso Apollo heated grips last winter. Combined with a set of Hippo Hands, they've definitely allowed me to extend my riding season.
I used them pretty extensively in the spring without any problems. A couple of weeks ago, I started needing them for my morning commute. I noticed the other day, when I had the grips on their highest setting, that my left grip started to rotate, like the glue was loosening up. When I reduced the heat level, it seemed to get better. When the grip is cold, it's tight.
Since I didn't install the grips, I don't know what was used to adhere the grips. I would like to think that, if Koso provided a glue with the grips, it would be able to hold up to the heat.
Has anyone had any similar issues? Or suggestions?
If it's a good day to wash the bike, it's a better day to ride the bike.
