Remove the 2 screws retaining the unit to the bars. and separate the holder, remove the cable end from the throttle rolling connection, put the cable end into the slot and re-attach it to the bars. No problem. They're all the same.

If you are just replacing the grip it's a matter of cutting off the old one, soaking the new one in hot water, perhaps applying some contact cement and sliding the new one on. If you're replacing the whole assembly, it's pretty straight forward, undo the mounting hardware and it comes apart, then it's a matter of reversing the procedure. It gets a little goofy with everything kinda hanging there, but I'm confident you can do it. It will only go together and function the right way, just a little patience. NOW is a great time to apply a penetrating solution and working it into the cable to keep it sliding smooth and rust free. If you have any concerns write back and we'll walk through it.

Broke a throttle cable - can't see how to re-attach the new cable to the twist grip.


You have not listed your model.
Generally, remove two or three screws holding the right hand control module together. Remove old cable, install new cable in housing, and cable end in throttle tube. Reassemble.

How do i replace grips on 2009 electra glide ultra classic


For twist grip equipped motorcycles to remove the throttle or right side grip remove the upper and lower switch housing screws, loosen the upper screw securing the handlebar clamp to the master cylinder housing. Remove the lower clamp screw with flat washer, separate the upper and lower switch housings and remove the throttle grip from the end of the handlebar. (To remove the throttle grip, a slight tug may be necessary to release index pins in grip from receptacle in seal cap of twist
grip sensor.)

With throttle cables, to remove the throttle or right side grip slide the rubber boot off of each cable adjuster, loosen the jam nut on each adjuster, turn the adjusters in the direction that will shorten the cable housings to their minimum lengths. THEN remove the two screws and separate the upper housing from the lower housing, unhook the ferrules and cables from the throttle control grip and the lower housing, (remove friction spring, throttle friction screw and spring from the lower housing only if necessary), (only if and as necessary mark the position of the master cylinder assembly forward position and split line on the handle bars) (to be safe squeeze the front brake lever and place a 5-32 inch thick cardboard insert between brake lever and lever bracket and then release brake lever to hold the lever in this place to protect the brake switch from damage if the switch housing and the master cylinder get separated) (and only if and as necessary, loosen the two perch screws) move the lower switch housing as necessary and remove the grip.

To install the throttle grip apply a light coating of graphite to the handlebar and the inside surface of the upper and lower housings, (if removed, install the spring, throttle friction screw and friction spring in the lower housing) (and, if removed, attach the cable assemblies to the lower housing), (throttle control cable has a 5-16 inch fitting end and is positioned to the front of the lower housing. and the idle control cable has a 1-4 inch fitting end and is positioned to rear of lower housing. Install the throttle control grip over the end of the right handlebar, position the lower housing onto the right handlebar, engaging the lower housing with the throttle control grip, position the ferrules over the cable ball ends, seat the ferrules (with the cables attached) into their respective notches of the throttle control grip, install the upper housing over the right side handlebar and secure it to the lower housing with the appropriate two screws and hand tighten them, then align the brake master cylinder and perch assembly with the marks made prior to loosening them, and beginning with top screw, tighten the two screws to 108-132 inch lbs using a T27 TORX drive head and then tighten the upper and lower housing screws to 35-45 inch lbs. THEN point the front wheel straight ahead and WITH THE ENGINE OFF, adjust the throttle and idle cables by turning the adjuster in the direction that will lengthen the cables. Gently twist the throttle control grip to the fully open throttle position (fully counterclockwise) and hold it in this position and turn the throttle control cable adjuster counterclockwise until the throttle cam on the induction module (or carb) contacts the throttle cam stop, release the throttle control grip and turn the adjuster counterclockwise an additional 1-2 to 1 turn and tighten the jam nut on the throttle control cable adjuster. THEN turn the handlebars fully to the right and turn the adjuster on the idle control cable counterclockwise to lengthen the sleeve until the end of the cable housing just touches the spring within the cable guide. NOW check the adjustment by, with the throttle friction screw loosened, twisting and releasing the throttle control grip two or three times. The induction module throttle wheel must return to the idle position each time the throttle grip is released. If the throttle does not return to idle, turn the idle adjuster, shortening the cable sleeve until the correct adjustment is obtained, tighten the jam nut and slide the rubber boots over each cable adjuster. NEXT start the engine and with it idling turn the handlebars through their full range of travel and if the engine speed changes at all during this maneuver, adjust the control cables according to the foregoing procedure so that there is no change in the idle speed when the handlebars are rotated through their entire range of travel.


To remove the clutch or left side grip remove the two screws and separate the upper housing from the lower housing. Mark the forward position and clutch perch split line on the handlebars and then as necessary loosen the two clutch perch screws and move it out of the way so that you can access the grip end. If you want to save the grip take a small screwdriver with about an eight inch length and insert it into the grip, wiggling it to loosen the glue somewhat and then spray some brake kleen into the space under the grip where the screwdriver blade is inserted and wiggle and twist the screwdriver around to loosen the rest of the grip glue and pull the grip off. Sand down the handle bar area where the grip will rest and apply grip cement to the area and slip the grip on. If the left hand grip is patterned, align it with the pattern on the right hand grip with the throttle in the fully closed position, immediately push the grip completely onto the end of handlebar using a twisting motion. Do not hesitate when installing the grip or the adhesive may dry before installation is complete. Allow 6 to 8 hours to elapse at 70 degrees F to allow the adhesive to fully cure. If a newer non-glue grip is being installed slip it on with the flats properly oriented to fit with the switch housing halves when they are installed. Install the switch housing halves and lightly tighten the two screws and then orient the clutch perch to the previously made alignment marks and beginning with the top screw, tighten the screws to 108 - 132 inch lbs using a T27 drive head and then tighten the switch housing screws to 35-45 inch lbs.

Throttle is jammed on 09 heritage classic, won't return


From your description, the following is usually the cause:

Remove twist grip from end of handlebar, and apply a THIN coating of hi-temp grease to the handlebar end where the throttle sleeve rides.

Lube the throttle cables.

Check cable routing, making sure that there's no tight bends, and it's not hanging up, or pulling.

Check for weak/broken throttle return spring (if there i one)

Installing Harley Davidson Chrome & Rubber Hand Grips Large 56263-96A


Sounds like the throttle lock is possibly binding up. Remove the right grip. There should be a little half moon shaped piece of plastic in there at the bottom of the switch housing. This plastic piece will have a small hole in the outside edge. This hole has to be placed over the pointed end of the throttle stop. The throttle stop is the plastic star wheel on the outside of the bottom of the right switch housing. There is a small metal Jesus clip on the inside of the switch housing. This clip is supposed to hold the stop from being turned completely out of the switch housing. It's possible the clip came off and is wedged in there.

My thottle cable broke how to fix


remove seat and gas tank. remove air box and related parts to be able to access the throttle body of the carburetors. open the hand grip casing on the handle bar and loosened the adjustment on the cables, then separate the hand grip from the plastic casing. detach the cables from the throttle hand grip, followed buy doing the same to the carburetor. remove the old cables by tracing their paths and make sure the new ones follow the same route, take notes if need be. follow removal instructions backwards and adjust slack in the cables once all is back in place, slack should be no more then 4 millimeters on throttle handle( free play)

2000 Sportster 883, the throttle grip does not work. It turns in clockwise position but does not engage engine.


I don't really understand what you're saying. You say your throttle grip turns in the "clockwise position" but doesn't engage the engine. If you look from the end of the throttle grip, turning the throttle grip in the clockwise direction would be turning the grip towards the idle position. Turn the throttle grip in the counterclockwise direction as viewed from the end of the grip to get the engine to speed up.

If the throttle grip does not seem to control the engine, then either the throttle grip is not secure on the throttle sleeve or you have broken cables.

Good Luck

I need to remove the rt.handlebar throttle grip and replace it. need some pictures.


If you want pictures, I'm afraid that you'll have to purchase a manual somewhere. This forum will only allow me to send a picture of 150Kb size. Replacing the throttle grips is not difficult.

First, loosen the locknuts on the throttle and idle cables at the twist grip. Adjust the adjuster barrel inwards all the way getting as much slack as possible. Now, loosen the bolts holding the front master cylinder onto the handlebars and slide it towards the center of the bars just a bit. Remove the two bolts that hold the right handlebar switch housing together. Carefully lift the top portion of the switch housing and move it towards the front of the bike exposing the throttle twist grip. Work each of the cables out of the nylon wheel of the twist grip. Do not loose the barrels that go on the ends of each cable. Once you have the cables loose from the wheel, lower the lower switch housing and remove the right grip from the handlebar.

Now, take the new grip and apply a coating of white lithium grease to the wheel part and the inside of the throttle sleeve in the grip. Put a coating of grease on the handlebar end where the sleeve rides as well. Slide the throttle sleeve and grip onto the handlebars. Bring the lower switch half up and reconnect the cables to the throttle wheel. Carefully reposition the top half to the switch housing and make sure that no wires are being pinched. Install the two bolts but don't tighten. Slide the throttle grip all the way up on the handlebars and then back off about a 1/4" or so. Tighten the two bolts. Now, adjust the two cables to where they each have just a bit of slack. Turn the throttle grip to the wide open position and release it. The throttle should snap shut. If not, work with it until you get it to where it does. Once operating properly, reposition the front brake master cylinder.

Make sure your throttle operates properly. An improperly operating throttle control can cause lose of control of the bike resulting in serious injury or death.

Good Luck

How to replace right hand throttle grip 2003 ultra


Remove the switch housing screws and spread it away. Loosen the adjuster locknuts on the throttle cables and adjust cables in, this will allow you to lift the cable off of the throttle grip. Be care full not to lose the barrels.( the small round caps on the end of the cable.) Assembly is the reverse. Make sure to check proper operation of the throttle before starting the bike.
