I installed a brand new 2020 R6 throttle tube on my 2020 R3 ABS and I used Mobil 1 synthetic Grease says for wheel bearings, chassis, suspension, universal joints. But its sticking alittle when I let off it doesnt flick right to off like before. Did I use the wrong grease or not enough? Is there something i can use to fix? Any help would be super appreciated

Most times that happens, the rubber grip is rubbing against the clip-on end caps. They screw in and are stationary, while the throttle and grip turn. Maybe check that and trim off rubber if needed.

I'll check but I believe there was no rubbing, it was alittle slow when the housing was open and cables attached

Didn't know R3's are powered by a driveshaft...May I kindly ask where on this bike you found a universal joint :oops:

Sorry to bring up this old thread but WOW what a difference. This should have been the first mod i did to the bike and save my wrist for the first 2k KM. I ordered right from Amazon

part# 2C0262400000

and the grip even matches my 2019 grip so i did not have to replace the grips. It took me 20min to do in the garage and made the most difference from any other mod i did by far. well, the ss brake lines did pretty good also but the difficulty and time to do was a lot more for the results. this is a must if you have not done already. once installed i had to adjust the return cable a little as it was sticky on the return; but now working perfectly and went for a little test. it make a world of difference. feels like a normal throttle!

also got my new NGK Iridium plugs today but going to wait till start next season to put them in. I have my stock ones in now (only 2K KM on them) and will winterize the bike with them in there and change on season opening along with an oil change.
