Sorry - I meant it acts like an unintended cruise control - you open the throttle and it stays there. I do not have a cruise control installed. Whatever spring force returns the throttle normally to idle, cannot overcome the friction when i tighten the case screws. I can twist it back to idle, and it works fine right up until i snug up the screws. It's like the new grip is larger diameter or thicker or something. I was looking this morning at the two throttle grips, and the heated grip has a larger plastic collar than the stock one where it fits into the case. I did lube it, but i think I may have to remove some material in the new grip to slightly reduce the diameter. But I have not heard of anyone having to do this and I don't like putting my new $$$ grips under the grinder.
