Throttle grip anti-rotate nub(?)

215 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  willyb99
Hello all

So I have this issue with the throttle/kill switch/start button housing
Automotive tire Electrical wiring Gas Auto part Coil

. Usually there is a little nub on the housing that mates up with the hole on the handlebar as an anti-rotating measure. As you can see in the included pic, it has been sheared off.

I'm sure other people have seen this as well. I have a new housing from the Bay but alas, this one is sheared off as well.

What is your recommendation to alleviate this?

Thank you so much

I'm the bad guy here! I usually use my rotary tool to take those annoying things off. Then I can position the thumb controls however I want on any handlebar.

A piece of friction tape or athletic tape (for gear not bodies) wrapped on the handlebar is all you need to keep the controls from slipping - especially the right side.
I did almost exactly what you said on mine. Somehow I broke that nub off on the throttle side, so I used some double-sided Gorilla tape. Worked like a champ.

PS- I sent you a private message about the ACCT. Check you DM's when you get a chance!
