Poor grip install, extra throttle play?
So, I had a pair of Driven D3 knockoffs that I was going to install myself this weekend but was on my lunchbreak today and decided to see if my local honda dealer could throw them on while I was getting my lunch across the street.
Long story short, the grips were installed poorly and incomplete. Turns out you need to grind off the lip on the throttle side to slide any aftermarket grips on (read about it after the fact). But, the installer didn't even consider it and just muscled them on and tight as he could get them.
So, now in addition to having to remove the grips myself later (he used grip glue and since I've never used that before I'm hoping it's not too tough to remove), I also noticed there's about twice as much free play in the throttle.
Is it even possible to stretch out the throttle cable or increase the amount of free play on the throttle just by spinning the throttle around trying to muscle the grips on?
