Gap in Throttlemount / case
« on: February 04, 2020, 08:38:40 AM »
Hello,
i have a Problem with the mounting of the Throttlecase (?? - don't know the specific name of this part in English - sorry).

During the installation of heated Grips i opened up this case ( two crews) to move throttle a little bit to the inside,
and now i can't get it back on :157:
I tried it several time, nearly 2 hours  :157:, but it won't fit / close completly  :232:
Both screws are locked.
According to this, it will not fit tight, so i can twist it.
Not ridable !

Whats the trick to get it close completly ?

Hello Freerider! I think the key is there - you moved a thottle case o moved a throttle tube inside the case? Throttle case has a pin that fits into hole in handlebar - if you moved it the pin won't fit anymore and you can't close it.

If you need to change the position of throttle case new hole shlould be drilled in the handlebar.

Regards

After drilling the hole at the same diameter the throttle case will still have some free play.
When the case is closed you can still twist the case a few mm around the steering bar. So don't screw it;)

Whenever at your local honda dealer 'feel' this on the (new) honda bikes, they all do.

If still not preferred the twisting, drill the hole the same diameter as the pin from the case.

The throttle response of this bike is somewhat jerky for some people. The free play removed could be of some help to eliminate this.

I had that trouble when I fitted heated grips to my previous cb, just fitted some to the 19reg I have & knowing that once I opened the throttle its a PITA to get the pin lined up I put some masking tape on the bars so I knew where it went back, on the other bike I did I ended up laid on the garage floor with a torch trying to spot the location of the hole :745:

As an aside until I read it on the internet I didn't realise that screws on Jap bikes/cars aren't philips head they are JIS Japanese Industrial Standard & sometimes if you use the wrong screwdriver it cams out & you can't slacken/tighten it, so as I like all the toys I bought a set of JIS screwdrivers and you can tell the difference.

I had similar, there's a wire(s) that get in the way of the front part going back in behind the start button. Open it up a smidge and look in to the lower right corner and you'll see it if it's the same thing that happened to me. You just need to poke it back behind the part that want's to slide into the rear part of the case.
