    RBW Throttle

    Hi all,

    With the intention of installing Oxford heated grips to the 2018 Tiger, in preference to the Trumpet originals, I have taken the RBW apart to see how the throttle sleeve fits.

    It's not straight forward!

    Does anyone have the service manual? Any chance of a heads up on how to re-tension the throttle return spring having replaced the throttle sleeve. No doubt it is described in the Trumpet service book.

    The sleeve itself is a pain - it's ribbed, so some fettling/sanding will be required to get the Oxford grip on. Nothing is ever easy is it?

    Thanks in advance

    Bw

    Found this on the web - probably what I needed! I will report back if successful!  :002:

    Not a lot in the service book - seem to assume you won't mess with the spring

    Thanks Sean,

    The trick is to rotate the brass casing of the spring section as if applying throttle, the grip then engages as you slide it in. Simpeels!

    I have still have to do some fettling on the plastic of both LH and RH grips so that I can slide the Oxford grips over. I am optimistic I will be successful tho. The electrics is the easy bit!

    Left hand Oxford grip fits straight on the bars, so I discarded the plastic sleeve.

    Just the electrics to connect

    An update for those of you who may want to follow by fitting Oxford heated grips.

    The Oxford Sports grips work very well, so highly recommended, fitted to all three bikes in the household!

    I used the existing supply connector which is on the RHS under the tank, it sit on a bracket on the cam cover. I could not find a mating part for the existing female connector (nightmare searching the TE AMP catalogue online), so I fitted a AMP Econoseal J series connector (both male and female) One which I already had from when I did my automatic oiler installation. The electrics were relatively easy.

    The worst part was the RHS throttle, it needs quite a bit of Dremel work to remove the ribbing to enable the heated grip to slide on the throttle twist, I deliberately left it a tight fit so I have not needed to glue the grip on. There are very shallow flats on the twist grip, which allowed me to use a spanner and adjust the position of grip on the twist so the cable was free to move.

    There is a flange on the throttle twist, on the inboard side which is normally hidden under the rubber of the original grips. Ideally you should remove it to get the heated grip to slide as far on as the original. However at this part of the throttle twist there is a change in the diameter of the plastic so it is not so simple. I intend to attempt to modify another throttle twist (£10 so worth a go ) on the modelling lathe to see if I can improve the install.



    You can see the flange (hopefully) in the photo.

    I'm looking forward to toasty fingers!

    I have Oxford heated grips on my Speed Trip, really good, ( not sure why 5 settings are needed ), only thing I donít like it that the heat level is illuminated, but not the buttons, so at night itís a guessing game, and on really hot days, if the bike has been outside all day, the glue on the clutch side melted, so the grip would just revolve, not fun
