If you have some place like a Northern Tool and Supply or Harbor Freight...some place that pretty much does tools....you can get the wire (there are different gauges, but I forget what the sizes are) and the pliers. There is a special pair of pliers to twist the ends together and tighten it down.

I generally saftey wire other odds and ends such as drain plugs, oil filter bolts, radiator cap and any bolt that likes to come out that I really really need. It's just a hang up of mine from the my old sport bike days. Road racing requires it and I about killed myself on the street once when the radiator cap came off and laid down a bunch off coolant in front of the rear tire.

Hmm I use stainless steal for my wire. The gauges (smallest is best) ONE wrap is fine. I just use needle-nose to ty it. Also make sure you push the end of the ty job back into the grip, no cuts down the road. And you'll have to wear gloves on long rides. The wire is to hard on my baby soft hands lol.

I use 22 ga. stainless steel wire. I prefer to double strand the inner grip and single the middle and end of the grip also. Just be sure the ends are pushed back into the grips.
