I used Loctite Liquid Nail, which holds it on quite well, but since mine have a slight warp, I needed something else around the edges. So I used Permatex RTV Adhesive Sealant. Yes, it is a good idea to put that around the edges to keep the crap out. Overall, they look pretty slick on the bike. I've still got duct tape on mine right now to hold the RTV in place until it sets.
