Throttle pull / return is slow after changing grips

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11Av...ew?usp=sharing


Greetings all I hope to find some help with my issue that has eluded me. I changed my old nasty grips to some nice pro grips and had my teenager nephew help me out, he twisted a little too over zealously against the return motion (upwards) on the throttle side installing grips and I heard a a snap. Afterward a small piece of plastic was missing from top of the return cable and the throttle lost it's springiness/ tautness for the return.


Interesting enough I don't believe the cable is broke from reading different throttle problem posts I've searched for but perhaps something else. Once I removed the plastic housing of the throttle I noticed that if I moved the assembly over to the left I regained all my spring back. But as soon as I returned the top plastic nub into the metal hole on the bar, the same slow tension was there.


I've WD40 cables
I've messed with adjustment screws at bottom, and moved cables around while twisting the throttle (no difference)
I've held back my grips flange to see if rubbing was issue. (did not seem to be)

Perplexed and would appreciate any insight to get her wheels back on the ground. See attached video of the problem

The grip is pushing up against the bar end way over to the right end. Trim a bit off the right end with a razor or something and it should be fine.

Sticky new grips, they will shrink or the offending surface will wear down. The trim will work or find two plastic washers with the correct I.D. to sandwich in there.

Appreciate the reply guys, i guess my couple of youtube video didnt mention trimming grips. So just to clarify the grips are to large on the right side of bar pushing them to the right? So on the outside edge of grip near the barend simply make a circle cut around grip to remove excess that causing stick?

Forgive me If I am not understanding correctly, about to hit the sack and will check back tomorrow morning. Very happy that it's a grip issue. Kept looking for a spring that was maybe sheared or something.

Trim the outside, removing the bar end fixes it right ? You might find it shrunk a bit overnight too.

I had to get out of bed and check. yup removing bar end fixes it, I overlooked it immediately because of that recessed flange of the bar end. Looked like it had space in between so I never even considered. Thanks fellas for the assistance will be back riding tomorrow!
