I just bought a 2015 Vision Tour and drove it from Dallas, TX to Baltimore, MD. It was so cold and I had to turn on the heat on the grips. Strangely, the throttle gets stuck when the heat is on. Does anyone experienced this issue? Thanks,

Check to see if your hand grip is up against your brake mount. If so the expansion of the heated grip may be binding with it.

Bar end caps can cause that if too close to grip.
The grips swell slightly with heat.

Mainly a thing with aftermarket bar end caps.

Intersting. I did ride in a Veterans Day Parade on a cold morning and noticed the same thing. I have driven many times with the grips heated and it never did that. I will check it out.
Did you have to take the grip off ?
If it's the end cap then just pry it out a smidge.

Grime and dirt can also get caught up between the cap and grip. I have had to clean mine a few times over the years when it starts to bind.

Appreciate the info. I will give it a good cleaning.
