Loose throttle tube/kill switch

So on the road today, no screwdriver to check. My throttle is currently free rotating, and im not refering to the part thats supposed to but the whole assembly.

My question is is there an anti rotational pin on the kill switch housing or is it just screw tight? Wondering if i need to find a screwdriver or give the dealer a call.

Thanks

As I recall from when I installed a "throttle tamer", I think there is a pin or hole to receive a pin. Can't remember which.

There should be a hole drilled in the bars for the boss on the housing to sit in.

Yep as said their is a locating pin and if it's not in the right spot the housing will not tighten up correctly and their will be a gap in the 2 housings housings unless a lot of force has been used to do it up tight

thanks gents. Gonna have to take it apart tomorrow and see if the pin is there then. The dealer is pretty good about things so if its an issue, hope they'll cover it.

I'm sure you will just need to loosen the screws and wiggle it into position

Well thanks for all the input folks, looks like my pin is indeed sheared. Time to give the dealer a ring.

That sucks. Yes, give them a call. In the interim you could loop a couple wraps of electrical tape and tighten the assembly...should be fine until dealer addresses it.
