When I have my Acerbis handguards on it makes my throttle rough to turn and it is sticky. I know this is due to the bar plug expanding when it is tightened down.

Are there any tricks out there as to how to get a responsive throttle with my set up? I have tried some W-D40 and it helps but its still not great~!:blah:

make sure of two things....
1) make sure the hole you made is wide enough
2) try backing the hand gaurd away from the end a 1/16
My problems have always been fixed with these two.....hope it helps

here is a thread that should help:
