I will check with the shop I bought it from later today and see if they have ideas too.

Just to catch up and let you know the cheapest hair spray in a dollar store is what I used to glue the twist grip throttle replaceable grip. It does not slip now. I will also put some on the other hand grip as it is probably OK, but could not hurt. The bike shops use this approach I saw in a TV documentary on building BMX bikes. The twist grip replaceable portion is far away from any of the cable parts so there is no danger of having it stick the throttle. I also just sprayed the inside of the grip and pushed it on. I wiped any excess that leaked when I put the hand grip back on. Let it dry inside at room temperature for 3 days.

Good tip I got from a kids show!
