It has to be twisted back into place. So, I guess tomorrow night I'll disassemble the throttle grip again and check it out. I'm hoping like heck I see the dreaded rubber drip that some of you have run into.

    Thanks for the great help!!!
    I just installed mine and had the similar issue but noticed the throttle works fine with the bars straight but for some reason doesn't snap back all the away sometimes when the bars are turned hard left like it was parked. I haven't attempted to pull it appart yet and look at it for any issues but wondered if there was something different related to the cable.

    I also first tried without using any glue on the left side. I road a day like that and it doesn't move much but will twist a little which didn't bother me much but I added some 3M trip adhesive glue because I didn't want to use the rock hard cement like glue they provide. I know if I used their stuff I would find that I didn't put it on perfectly straight and would be mad.

    I love the look and feel of these grips though.

    Well I got the throttle to snap back correctly. I actually took it apart tonight and found a couple of things which might have contributed to the sticking. First, I found that the bar had a couple of nicks in it...very small and I assume they were there from the factory as they were under the grip...nowhere near any tools so I'm sure that I didn't cause them...so I filed those smooth and secondly, in the cable channel area of the grip there was some flash from the molding process. So I filed that all smooth and reinstalled the grip, set the cable and it worked perfectly. I dont know for sure which or if both caused the sticking, but if you're installing these grips I'd suggest you double check the bars for complete smoothness and get rid of any flashing that looks like it could drag on something.

    Also, I used the glue that came with the grips. I was nervous because the instruction with the grips make this stuff sound like the fastest setting glue in the history of man kind. Now I will say it is fast, but not so fast that you can push the grip into place and then give it a quick twist to get it set. I'd recommend a dry test fit so you get the feel for how hard it is to push the grip into place and how you want it lined up, but after that, I had no problem pushing the grip on and giving it a quick alignment twist. There is definitely not enough time to mess with it, but there's plenty of time to adjust it if you push it on at least close to how you want it positioned....probably got 5 to 10 seconds before it wont budge.

    I hope this helps...this site is THE BEST! THanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge.

    Installed my grips tonight with 2 long throttle bosses in about 35 minutes. Very easy if you follow the how to and take your time. Phillips screws on throttle were way too tight and broke 1 screwdriver in getting them loose. Other than that was really very easy.

    The install how-to is great, but I had to put everything back together until I go get a screw extractor kit tomorrow. What gives with the morons who put these bikes together. I think they're laughing saying "whoever buys this bike is going to catch pure hell trying to get this off" hahahaha.... and then they hit the impact wrench one more time.

    Totally stripped the threads on one of the phillips head screws.

    Oh well.. I did manage to debeaver, install new turn signals front and rear and tint my tail light.

    I should have everything buttoned back up tomorrow once I get the screw out.

    hello all,
    First time post! OMG. thanks for the guide i am not very mechanical at all, and i did it in about 40 mins just really went slow and tried to focus on the parts you all mentioned gave some trouble ( screws and such). I fired up the bike after i installed the throttle side and it didn't seem to stick at all, once complete i started the bike up to show the wife the little mission i did :) and it stuck a bit. I am not sure how to adjust using the screws along the throttle line. ( any help here would be nice). I will definitely spend some more time on that to get it to "snap" back to the forward position. Again i am new to this site and have been reading the posts and all i can say is wow some good guys and posts to help all the 109 riders! thanks :read:

    Can't get the throttle to snap back. I've readjusted the cable closest to the brake and that doesn't do anything. Feels like the housing is rubbing on the black plastic piece on the grip itself.

    I noticed when installing these that the cables do not like sharp bends in them. Too sharp of a bend and the throttle gets stiffer and won't snap back as well. Also when installing these make sure to do the throttle side first and be absolutly sure you have it adjusted the way you want. Then do the left grip. If not then yuo might not be symetrical. Just my .02

    It seems to only stick when you go wide open, with normal small twists it does snap back. It seems to be fine, so I'm not going to mess with it anymore. It was enough of an ordeal trying to get the problem screw out (screw driver & hammer time).

    Thanks for the help.

    My grips arrived and I had no problem with them except they are cheap built. cable housing plastic guide broke just touching it. Spent about an our and half filing inside of grip just to make it slide free on bar and to top it all off, I opened the glue they supplied and there was no glue in tube. Maybe just not my day!

    If your refering to the pics that are missing from the very first post, keep in mind this post was started 17 months ago. Maybe someone has some pics of the install process or you could shoot a PM to the original poster and see if he still has them Also,

    Mine did and also made my palms itch and peel. I thought about taking them off but I can't find another set of grips that let you add helmet locks. So now I just wear gloves all of the time.
