newbee 919

I just joined after browsing this site for months. Thank you all for entertaining me. I have a question that maybe one of you can answer? I have a 04 919 and i just replaced the handle grips and now my throttle is sticking. I did not touch the cables so they should still have the same amount of freeplay. just wondering if this has been a problem for anyone else? I can manually return the throttle but it will not return on its own. I hope someone has a better solution as to why or how i can resolve this problem with out having to take my cables off entirely.

Thanks and hello!

Welcome to the site.

Did you happen to get the right grip pushed up too far, or too much glue on it when you put them on? If it rubs the control pod, or it's not lubricated between the part that holds the cables and the handlebars, it won't return.

You can also have the same problem if you don't get the grip on far enough and it rubs the weight. This is all basic stuff, but worth checking if nothing else changed.

maybe to much glue. I only put a few drops on and i did lubricate the cables as best as I could. thanks for responding! perhaps I will remove them and see what happens then.

Welcome aboard Rex... Check out Jim's recommendations. Did you use glue for the new grips? Remove the stock bar end, does the problem still exist?

I used to drive the short bus!!!
FYI got the handle grip set back fixed. some how the glue must have squeezed its way under the plastic slider and the handlebar. had to remove the whole assembly and sand it down but it was worth it. gel grips look and feel great. Thanks for all of the advice!

Glad you got it working.
