Thumbs down rizoma bar ends, warning!

just in case any body orders the rizoma bar ends, the red anodized ones which look great by the way, BUT when i came to ride my bike this morning the throttle was sticking, there don't seem enough clearance of the throttle leaving it jammed open which was a bit scary at a junction, so what I'm trying to say it check the throttle moves freely, I've added an extra washer, slightly bigger, I've got plenty of washers spare if any body needs them. just might avoid that scary moment.

It's all very funny until someone gets hurt, then it's hilarious.

The trick is to not push them in all the way. If you push them all the way in, just bring it out slightly and tighten.

The throttle should snap back freely if you test it out before you go riding
I've had them for a while and it they work great

they look great with the grips as well, mine are slightly different to yours a bit longer, and the washer don't fill the recess propely, and different colour, deeeper red, perhaps they have changed them, o.k. now yes your right i should have checked throttle worked o.k. but changed loads of bar ends never has this problem

I found that having just small amount of interferance was good as it made the throtle less jumpy on bumpy roads

Thanks for the heads up. I found that even my motovation weighted bar ends managed to work their way closer to the throttle over many months till eventually they held the throttle open on their own. Just pull them out enough for some freeplay.

I really like these grips. I just can't seem to decided between red or silver. I have a 2005 brutale red and silver. I'm not sure if the red would look odd with the other reds on the bike. If anyone has a picture of either one on a red and silver bike please post a picture.

I saw the same red grips on a local 2006 910S in Red/Black and they look great. The red is a very good match for that color combo. He rarely posts here as "joecool" but you may be able to ask him for some pics.
