    it's probably the plastic piece that holds the cable on go to ronayers.com and look at the fiche and look for that part, they list prices

      Take the kill switch cover off and see if the throttle wires are snapped or if the plastic piece is snapped, my guess would be the plastic piece. Go from there, should be a pretty easy fix.

            don't cut anything!!! Just disassemble the kill switch assembly and check the innerds of the throttle assembly. Then give the cables a pull, not hard, but if they come out, then you need new cables. Not hard brother, just take your time and remember how things came apart and put them back the same way!

              sorry jt,

              You should have cut the stock grips off. Too much force while twisting them off always breaks shit

                DOH. i did break the white twist part!!well i went to the local stealer and the guy suggested dirtbike ones since they wouldnt have the one i needed till wed or fri NEXT WEEK. well w/ the 3 day weekend comin up i had to do something. bought the dirtbike part and went home for a test fit. WAHLA bingo fit like a glove. then i proceeded on putting the other progrip on. to my dismay the fucker didnt goa ll the way back. theres 1/4 inch of the white underneath showing. guess im gonna have to deal w/ it. i used the cement too so if there is something i can do to fit it it wont come off. think im gonna jimmy rigg it and use a black marker and maint the white so its less noticable might look but oh well. on another note they are wayh comfier than stock then i proceeded to install the new h4 hid bulbs. WHAT A BITCH!! that copper lookin clamp system they have for holding the bulb in place was kickin my ass. but i gottem in finally and they look great. and the best part is a dirtbike part saved my ass from stayin home all weekend!!! eoohoo. thaks again guys you helped me tremendously. from now on im gonna ask before i do ANYTHING new. if i woulda i wouldnt have had to spend an hour in rush hour to get something i couldnt afford to buy. damn this is a long post!! oops, thanks for listening

                    Nice work jt

                    The aftermarket grips dont fit over the throttle housing like the stockers, don't worry about it.
