Sliding Throttle....

Post by Psycheonabike » Mon Feb 25, 2019 3:58 pm



Hi, just fitted some nice new grips. But....the throttle grip won't push right up to the ignition switch housing so is slid g up and down with a tedious 'click' sounds. Apart from not feeling good the 3/4 " gap looks awful. Am I missing something??

Are the grips meant for Goldwings? Goldwings do have longer grips than most motorcycles.

Ah.......... :oops:

Although, there are loads of different types, exactly what size do I need to ensure they're a fit?

Cheers....
