  • Grips

    My new grips aint right. It sticks for a second when I let off. Its hard to turn the throttle. Will they loosen up in time or have I pinched something. Can I put oil on it?

    something is`nt right,possibly some glue or other foreign substance between the handlebars and the twistgrip or a binding throttle cable.

      Do`nt put oil on anything except the cables themselves and then I use only a teflon based lube.
      Probably have some component out of place within the clamp itself.

          there is also the possibility that the ferrels aren't seated in the grip properly causing them to drag. could might also be the throttle tensioner

            Had mine apart this winter and when I put it back together it was sticking. Found that one of the cables was not adjusted properly (don't remember which). Got them right and grip worked ok. Mine is a 01 F/I if that makes a difference....Glenn

                Dixie, I read this earlier today but didn't respond, check the cables themselves first, just free the ends up and slide em, if they move freely then the problem is in the adjustment or your binding in the grip, if the cables don't slide 100% freely then you've twisted the cable housing! Twist housing/jacket right or left sliding the cable as you go until cables slide freely, 100% freely!

                      I had this issue one time and I had not seated the cable ends properly which caused the drag.

                        Hi Dixie, just wondering if you solved the grip problem and how?....Glenn
