Folks,
I recently installed the ring on my bike; '08KPT w/ Vic heated grips.
On closing the switch housing, the throttle went stiff, particularly on return.
I was prepared to do a little cable rigging already, and had watched the video; so there was knowledge of vague grinding that may need to be done in the housing..........what I found was the throttle cable sheath ends were too long and were hitting the ring. Dremeled off about 5mm and good to go.
I don't know how other years and models are set up, but on mine- with the 3 screws and bottom housing plate removed, the guides and ring are easily visible....sorry, no pics taken.
I haven't come across this anywhere else, hope this helps somebody.

throttle adjust

either the push or pull adjuster under the tank will add tension unless something is tight. the vid said a little sanding may be necessary if it don't rotate well. i had problem getting play on my 13 hammer, almost adjusted one to the end. a search my bring it up either here or the other Vic forum. checked my notes pull cable, whichever one it is gives more snapback, i just played until it worked.
