not sure i follow the question.Directions call for a 2 part epoxy but I am out and already bought yamabond grip glue. Any problems?
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.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?
I've done the same thing over the years with numerous bikes and various kinds of grips and heating elements, and have never had a slipping problem. I also use alcohol to remove grips -- just stick a thin screwdriver between bar and grip, shoot some alcohol in there and twist until it's distributed -- the grip will slide right off (unless glued on at the factory like my late #$%&^* KLR).Are you re-installing the stock grips over the Symtecs? I didn't use any glue putting my stockers back on. I lubricated the inside of the grips with rubbing alcohol and slipped them back on. No problems...they haven't budged.
lol i hadn't thought of that... bastards...I think that epoxy idea is promoted by the grip heater companies to make sure you ruin them any time you change grips or bars.
