Thanks!

PD

Do you have a throttle lock ? Move the switch/throttle housing to the left on the bar. As the grip heats, it expands and gets pinched between the bar end/throttle lock and the throttle tube end, inside the switch housing. You need to give it a little free play, side to side. If you have a throttle lock with shims, just remove a shim and retest. Ahh!
