Need help please!

So, I replaced the handlebars on my 2019 RGS. After I got everything put back together I went for a ride. When I would twist the throttle, it would accelerate and then drop back down to idle. I would then have to push the grip to the left to get it to catch on the throttle grip sensor. So basically, the grip keeps sliding to the right just enough to lose the grip on the TGS.
I took the grip back off, and the TGS comes out of the handlebar quite easily. What holds the TGS into the bar so that it doesn't slip out?

I am not a mechanic, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. If aftermarket bars, you may want to close the tabs on the notch slightly to hold TGS in place. If I remember correctly, it is just pressure that hold sensor in place. As for the grip sliding right, it should not move enough to disengage from throttle sensor obviously. I would double check alignment and placement of the grip in the control. Not knowing which bars you have, you may look at placement of control on bar and possibly move control slightly up bar to eliminate grip sliding down bar. Since I have a Road King converted to Road Glide, I do not have the new style clamps for the controls, so not entirely versed in the viability of being able to do that. Good luck. Hopefully, you will get some better advice from those more knowledgeable....

Try loosening the front brake clamp and the thumb controls on the right side and sliding everything inward and then re-tighten. The grip doesn't have to be jammed into the tgs with all your strength, but just make sure it is close enough and seated. What bars did you go with and are you using stock grips?

I installed the KST Vanguard 12" mini-apes. The grips are HD Get-A-Grip's.

Compare the teeth on the inside of the grip to the stock grip just to make sure you didn't get a bum right grip with shallow teeth in it. Then I would proceed with what I suggested in my last post and see where that gets ya. If that doesn't work double check your work and even disassemble and reassemble and even compare the area where the clamps and grip sits to the stock bar. Let us know what happens, good luck.

Make sure the grip is snug on the controls , there should be a little lip that holds it in place

Ok stupid question.. I just looked at those grips and they look like wired grips.. You did get the correct grips, the ones with the teeth in the bottom?

To add to this, make sure you didn't put the grips on the wrong side. I just got done with my 14" KST Spearhead bars with no issues like you have. Then again, I have HD heated grips so it's hard to switch them side to side.
