Slipping grip

Hey all,

I haven't really dug into the problem much, but particularly during my rainy ride home a weekend ago or so my throttle grip would rotate on the actual throttle and even begin to slide off of the handlebars while going down the highway.

Any ideas for fixing it, I'd much rather not glue the grip on. Heating it up would make it stretch I imagine.

Carpet tape works well too. Put a piece of it on the bar, remove the backing, pour some mineral spirits over the tape then slip the grip on over the tape. The mineral spirits makes the glue on the tape turn slick. It dries quick-that grip will not move.
