    I did not fit the heated grips at the time and I did not glue the grips back on. The heated grips did not fit properly so I left them off. I have not glued then grips back on in the expectation of finding alternative heated grips. The inside of the throttle grip is keyed into it. The left hand grip just sits there and does not have any real rotational forces applied to it through operating controls. So far I have suffered any problems. Any formal advice I would expect to recommend glueing them back on.

    Back to the steering damper.

    I have fitted the Tuono top plate and the damper top mount still does not clear the top plate. I have tried it both ways round. If I drilled out some M6 washers to M8 then I could raise the top plate.

    Mike, any help would be welcome.

    I know this is old by now, but I *believe* the reason your bracket does not sit flat is because it is a "Fat-bar" style through the clamp, right? 1 1/8 diameter? mllbb42 made the bracket with a standard bar (7/8") through the center. Spacers would alleviate the issue
