Do you have any type of grip covers installed, i.e. Grip Puppy's or some other?. I had the same problem you did caused by grip covers I installed on my 12GS. The rubber covers I installed over the stock grips squeezed the grips and pushed out the ends a bit. Everything was fine without heated grips on, but after running them hot a while, it would soften the rubber and then the end of the throttle grip would rub the right hand bar end weight causing sticking. I had to add a thin washer to the screw that holds the bar end on, and that pushed out the bar end weight just a small amount and now no more rubbing.
