throttle tube a bit loose?

Anybody feeling this? I thought at first It was steering head loose or something but I think it is the throttle tube which rattles a bit on the handlebar on uneven road.
Wonder it there is a way to tighten it somehow.

When you say "throttle tube" you mean this?

Can't imagine what would get loose inside that. I did have the return cable break off on my previous SV, which made things rattle and unnerving.

Mine is the exact same way. The original grip and the Suzuki factory heated grip both feel the same way. I too thought initially it was the headset, I just ignore it now.

If there's too much rotational play you can adjust the cables, otherwise nothing to do except replace if worn out, though I have never heard of a throttle tube wearing out.

It is not worn, there is just a little side to side play in the tube. Nothing to do with it being loose on the throttle cables.

it's not throttle play, I would know how to adjust it - it's side to side move with slight knocks as Jhat mentioned.
Like the throttle tube was too big for handlebar. .
