Throttle gets stuck in position after D3 grip install
I really think I f***** up this time and I think it has to do with being a little too glue happy when I was installing the grips. I just used Renthal grip glue on the bar itself and inside the grip and then I just slid the grip in place and let it dry as per the instructions. First thing in the morning I went to go check on it and the damn throttle wouldnt move; it was stationary just like the clutch side bar.
So I loosened the bar end and it moved ever so slightly but still no where near how it's supposed to be. The throttle just doesn't snap back when you let it go, it just stays in the same position where I leave it. What the hell did I do wrong?
What I noticed is the white gap between the grip and the throttle body? Is the grip supposed to be flush with no gap? I tried pushing it back all the way but it's not going any further. Could that be the reason why the throttle is sticking in position?
