Some Grip Help Appreciated

I moved this from my build post to get answers can see the photo on Old School Long Chopper build.


This is what I went to.....the old grips were plastic and hockey tape....but at least they worked! I had a before pic.......but it wouldnt upload.

The cheap ass grips busted where the brass cable plug hooks inside the grip, one tab broke off.
Also, it does not twist freely in the housing? I have a universal type housing, I figured universal meant most grips would work. The only way to fix the issue is to do some grinding on the grip...or inside the housing. But the grips are probably history now.

How do you match a set of grips with a cable housing and know it will work?

The two cable grip set up will not work in a single cable housing (or vice-versa) because the second little block that the second cable ball sits in will impact one end of the cable stop groove inside it. So, you have to cut it off or use a dremel to grind down one of the stops inside the housing so the throttle can twist freely with more range.

The fitment on that groove compared to the little blocks is not precise, so a little filing and some grease (I always grease the groove on assembly) helps to make for a freer throttle action.

Ahhh....right. It was a two cable grip.....and single cable housing. I did think of grinding down the grip or the housing. Well I broke off one of the tabs that hold the cable so I may have to scrap em and buy another set. At least I know what not to do now.
Whats the best a two cable housing....since most grips are sold that way....and just use one cable?
