Throttle tube problems
I have an 07 600rr and I'm having some trouble with the throttle tube. I just put new grips and bar-ends on my bike and now the throttle is sticking. The bar end is rubbing against the grip, but I can't get the grip to go on any farther than the little lip on the throttle tube. I've already taken the grip off and tried putting it back on twice, but it won't go any farther.
Also, my throttle tube has some play in it. I know it's supposed to have some play when you twist it but it also has play going right to left, towards the kill switch and back towards the bar-end. I'm not sure if that is normal or not.
I know for the first problem I can normally cut the grip so it will fit, but the grips I bought (Driven D3) have collars on both ends so I cant really do that. Can I shave off that lip on the throttle tube? Any suggestions? I can add pictures if anyone wants.
