Cracked throttle/brake handle

I have no $ for a new assembly right now, anyone have an idea for a temporary fix? I need to get the handle on tight so I can twist the throttle.

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

If you had a small pair of vice grip pliers you could grab whats left of the clamp between the jaws and clamp it tight to the bars. It will look ridiculous but it might get you around till you can drum up money or someone could send along the replacement part.

What is that a Domino style?

Jb weld will not fix this. I like the vice grip fix idea.

Not fixing this correctly is a safety issue.

You should spend the $25 to get this corrected before you take this on the rode.

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

If it were mine ...

I'd simply put the broken piece back where it came from and tighten it .

Then drill directly through the piece and into the handlebar . Tap for a set screw or small bolt and tighten that .

That will keep the throttle from moving and can easily be replaced with a proper clamp when a new one arrives . ;)

PD has about as good an idea as you could get.

Just remember, if you do that, it can still break again.

A distraction like that while riding can be very dangerous. Expect it to break. Have a plan for it so you aren’t surprised, if it happens, and crash.

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

I tried a small clamp but it could get a good grip, I'll try a vice pliers. Thanks

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

I don't want to spend 25 on a junky replacement that will break soon. I want a quality part which costs more. And I don't have 25 now anyway. Next month.

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

Very creative, thanks. If the vice pliers doesn't work, maybe I'll do your idea.

Re: Cracked throttle/brake handle

Ok, cheetah, this is the set up, I already had an old mirror clamp on so I put a small bolt thru the hole on the throttle assembly and clamped them in the vise. It's super tight. The small vise wouldn't fit so this is it. Going to add some zip ties so the vise doesn't hit me in the face if it flies off.
