919 broken throttle assembly
I'm not quite sure if throttle assebly is the correct term, but I'm going to run with it.
A couple weeks back, I put new grips on my niner to replace the old foam grips that were badly worn out. Apparently foam grips help with the vibs in the bars according to the PO. Anyways, I pull the old grips off and I notice there is a chunk of the plastic piece underneath about the size of a nickel. It looks like the bike was dropped on it's side and a chunk of the throttle assembly was chipped off at the end. I looked at it, thought well that sucks, and decided to put my new Progrip grips on anyways because it never caused any problems before.
Now fast forward to today. The grips have been on a few weeks and we are in peak riding season. The new Progrip grips are tackier than the foam grips which seams to cause the throttle to stick, or drag when returning back to a closed position.
Is there anything I can do short of replacing the whole assembly? I'm assuming that others have had this problem, or something similar.
I can provide pictures during my lunch break if anyone needs a visual.
