    Hey,

    Just wanted to say thank you for all of your help with the grips. I managed to fix it.

    In the end it wasn't the friction at the bar-end causing it to stick. I took apart the throttle housing (where the cable etc is) and glue had seeped into there and hardened. I cleaned it out as best I could and now it's working perfectly again

    Thanks again for the advice!

    Dom
