Hi Everyone! I was installing new grips on my 2018 MXR. Left side of handlebar is never the problem. Even though I was lean with grip glue on the right grip, I still ended up with too much glue in the end of the grip on the throttle tube and the throttle would barely rotate afterward. Joy! I had to remove the grip and use 400 grit to clean up the inside of the throttle tube and start over. It seems like the the MXR is prone to having problems with grip glue stickage because of the throttle tube location (as indicated by the Alta Owner's manual is approx 1/8" from the end of the bar) and the throttle tube is totally open on MXR. (Where is ODI Lock On when you need them!?!?!) Do y'all have any helpful solutions to keeping grip glue out of the space between the handlebar and the throttle tube housing? Is there a problem with running the throttle tube at the end of the handlebar rather than 1/8" from the end of the bars?
