Again in general terms on every bike I have owned the switchgear assy including the throttle mechanism although operated by cables, the switchgear casing always has a metal dowl which fits into a corresponding round hole in the handlebar. So once the switchgear casings are bolted together the dowel is located in the corresponding hole so that the switchgear and throttle cannot rotate around the bar. No matter how tight you clamp the switchgear on the bars, without the dowel and bar hole it will rotate fairly easily especially when braking or really gripping the throttle.
Is there a dowel on the switchgear? And is there a corresponding hole in the bars?
I would be very surprised if they have removed them intentionally as a design? Potentially very dangerous I would say.
I'm just doing the Krypton factor challenge of putting the twin cable throttle in place, while holding two halves of switchgear and a small white plastic cable guide and locate the dowel in the ole!!! Driving my fnuts!!!!
Mine was a BMW box. I sold it for quite a lot of money That was a happy day.
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum so look forward to talking to you all.
Due to an ankle injury and "age" lol .... I have recently been finding it really difficult to manoeuvre my 2010 Honda CBF600 so have decided to change.....
A new 2017 Kawasaki Z650 Ninja KTR should be under me on the 1st June, I'm so excited!
New leathers in Black & Green are proving to be a bit of a problem though so wondering if anyone can suggest any or have any for sale to suit a 5'3 lady, thanks in advance

Touring & travel
I must say these images are so amazing. I would love to go there in future.
Alright guys basically as title says. Unlike all my mates I headed towards Biking instead of Cars and now I'm in the unfortunate position ofnit having anyone to go out riding with in my area.
21 years old and ride a CBR600RR if anyone is interested at all feel free to reply, sometimes an extra set of wheels to go out riding with makes it that bit more fun,
