Throttle locks ?
Written by goldwingman40 on 7/14/2010 at 03:33 pm

Orrin,
The bars on the PC are 7/8" at the ends, they are only 1" at the center where
the clamps are.
If the slot for the tab is not cut in the correct location and with a slight
cnearance the unit can't float to canter itself on the throttle tube and will
bind the throttle. Also there is the screw to adjust the tension, do you have it
too tight?

understand about either cutting a slot or drilling a hole to mount it, that
isn't the problem. It seems to be too tight. I guess I have the one for 7/8 bars
but they don't have one for 1" bars except the one with the bar across the
housing. With the single one I have, the throttle is too tight, it doesn't just
release and snap back and you can't even twist the throttle normally. I have
enough room between the housing and grip. I hope I made some sense.

      Mine was binding up a little because I didn't drill the hole for the tab in the right location. I went to the hardware and bought a couple of 7/8 inch I.D. nylon washers and put one on each side to keep it away from the housing and the grip a

        Thank you guys for the responses. I actually cut the tab off the throttle lock and figured I would just drill into the housing. I never got that far because I can't seem to position it where it isn't binding. As far as having the screw fo

          Strange, something is not right. I think my adjustment screw is in about four or five turns. Please don't ask me to check. --- In

            Ok, I won't ask... I pretty much have it working now. I think I'm going to pick up a couple of those washers though and try that. Thanks for all the help. --- In

              I just put mine on a few days ago. (Thanks for the pre-drilled hole, Gib.) When I first put mine on, I also had some problems with the throttle releasing. After tinkering with it for a while, it suddenly started releasing. While I thought it

                When installing a Vista Cruise with the stock grips, the grip has to be pulled away from the housing just a little bit to make room for the Vista.....but then the grip hangs over and binds up on the bar end. I always trim the little ridge off
