no way ... they are glued on and the heating wires were melting it all

heated grips. the standard version w/o heating .. yes, there it can
maybe a good choice of waepon.

The other point is that you only need to spray your adhesive (clear spraypaint works well, too, and is not water soluble like hair spray) into the grip cavity. When you spray it on the handlebar, it gets pushed in front of the grip as you slide it on and does little good.
hairspray is not slippery when wet .. as far as i know .. but i will see and i
will tell if something happend.
