The prolem I'm having is that my throttle grip is loose. It actually slides side to side about an 1/8". Not a huge problem; but a little un-nerving when riding. My fix was to unscrew the handle bar weight and slide a washer there and replace the weight and end screw. However I didn't find the washer that I need at the big box fix it store, so I slid a keychain ring in there and it seems to have taken up the slack.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Kenny,

Both of our SilverWings have a bit of side to side movement of the throttle grip. I don't know exactly how much, but I've noticed it on other bikes as well.

It doesn't concern me too much.

That movement is there so the throttle won't get stuck and not return to idle. Don't take up too much of the movement. It has never bothered me.

I knew there must have been an actual reason I wasn't too worried about that free play.
