Changed the fork tube covers, triple tree assembly and bearings, headlight and handlebars. Struggling with sticky throttle. It worked good on the old bars. Cleaned the plastic tube, shot lithium spray grease, removed, cleaned and installed again. The throttle works freely until I bolt it on the brand new oem bars. Thats when it is binding in the grip. Next plan is to take the cables out of the control, give that and the tube a real good cleaning and try again. Maybe take a close look at handlebar end for burs and hit that with a file. I searched "sticky throttle: but most posts refer to the cables. Feel free to offer suggestions.
