The majority of suppliers and manufacturers do indeed specify JB Weld for use with heated grips.
From Aerostitch / Rider Wearhouse:
Because most adhesives soften when heated, Hot Grips recommends mounting grips with a two part slow-cure (8+hours) epoxy like JB Weld
, Duro, Devcon, etc. Fast setting (5 minute) epoxies are not always reliable above 200įF. Slow curing epoxies like this one are stable to over 250įF. Easy to use. 1.25oz.
And from the Hot Grips site:
Epoxy: You must use a slow-cure type 2-part epoxy
because the grips get hot, and excessive heat can break down the lower temperature quick-epoxy. J.B. Weld epoxy is fine, or Poxy-Weld Industrial Strength. Both are often found at auto parts stores, or at your local Wal-Mart store. At Wal-Mart it is in the aisle where they keep the automobile oil additives. If other brands are available to you, avoid any that discuss 5 minute cure on the packaging. Look for 250 degrees F. service duty.

Finding a grip in your hand minus the handlebar is not good. Good Luck.
