Default Re: throttle handle bracket nub

Most drill a hole to keep things from moving but I've read a few posts from guys who have had luck just tightening the grip after removing that tedious 'nub. Personally, I drill a 5/32 hole in the handlebar.
I cut the nub off and set the throttle in position.
Then I drill through the housing and handle bar and tap in a 3/32" roll pin or tension pin whichever you prefur.Kip.
