help with loose handlebar grips (humpert rubber grips)

I have mounted humpert Grips AK-10/2 for AHS-Premium / AHS-Basic (an extended rubber grips) to humpert AHS basic hanldebar with comfort bar ends using 'Mogaefliud for handlebar grips (a lubricant?). After about 12 hrs, the grip does not yet stick to the alluminum handle bar and turns. 1) Is this normal? Should I wait longer? 2) After a week or so, what can I do if it does not stick? Try to use a glue?? I'd like find a way to keep it.
Thanx a lot..

I have never heard of Mogaefliud (check spelling) so I can't tell you how long it needs to set, but 12 hours does seem to be enough time. As far as making grips stick, I usually use either rubbing alcohol or saliva (losts of spit). Make sure your grips and handle bar are clean (clean with alcohol). the alcohol or saliva will act like a lubricant but will evaporate quickly, so the grips should stay out. If not, yes use glue; I have used 3m and Duro spray adhesive and they both work about the same..

I hear hairspray works well with clean bars. Unless you expect the grips and shifters to last forever I would not use glue.

I'm with the hairspray option

Though in the shop We use the Air Compressor with clean bars and new grips the air cushion blown in between gets them On and old ones Off .

RTV silicone worked on a set of Oury grips that kept spinning and was reasonably easy to clean up when we switched them to a different set of handlebars.

It was Montagefluid. I left it alone for a week and found the rubber stuck to the handlebar. I guess time is great healer. Thanx a lot. Harry
