sticky throttle

My throttle wouldn`t close on its own today and after getting home found that the culprit was the bar-end weight. It appears that the expanding rubber mount wants to work its way inboard towards the wider section of handlebar and as a result ends up against the throttle grip. Easy fix by loosening weight bolt and sliding outwards, But something to watch out for. It is a 2010 1078RR.

I saw it on my buddy's Brutale..combination of lack of use and a limp wrist action ; )

No seriously this is common and one to keep an eye on.
