Default 1/4 turn throttle install problem 06 vegas

I am installing a quarter turn ring on my 06 Vegas with Transformer grips. I can get it all together but the housing will not close. The ring rubs and hits the housing at what look to be start and stop notches in the housing. What am I doing wrong? Am I supposed to grind those down? I don't really understand how the throttle works. Does it hit stop points in the housing? If so then how does the quarter turn change that?

See the other thread on the "active topics" page. Sounds like the older bikes have issues with these rings.

you need HR 2 ring and that will work with custom grips or H-D grips.
the number is on the side of the ring

I put one on my 04 KP a few years back. I had to take a Dremel and grind out the tabs. Once you get it clearanced, it will work great.

Can to much be ground off of these knobs in the housing? What is their function? Will be calling Witchdoctors and LLodz.

Can this thread be closed or deleted so all that remains are replies in the other thread to help consolidate info?
