fartin'martin Thanks for the input fellas.

I'll look into these ideas after the festivities. She who must be obeyed is quite understanding, but fiddling with my bike on Christmas or Boxing day might be pushing it too far!!

It'll be better than watching The Great Escape again though! As much as I like Steve McQueen, you'd think that after all the practice he's had, he'd be able to jump that bloody fence by now!

One thing you could try is to get a thin strip of rubber to go between the housing and the bars.
A strip of sandpaper (cloth backed would be best) could probably also work well.
A strip of aluminium from a beer or soda can also makes a good shim

antiq Two other ways to tighten. 1. lay a piece of sandpaper on a flat surface and sand off some of the mating surface of one half of the housing. 2. Using a very small center punch dimple the rounded area that clamps around the bar.

Switch clusters turning

Greeting to one'n'all

One of the things annoying me at the moment is the switch cluster on the throttle side rotating on the bars despite the screws being tight. It doesn't do it whilst riding of course, only when pushing the bike around.

Has anyone out there come up with a definitive method of preventing this?
