The below scenarios are commonly seen during initial installation — easy fixes …..

Condition #1: I installed it - the throttle is really hard to turn.

           Answer: The internal adjuster needs adjustment. Remove the mounting bolt and screw the internal adjuster “out” or “towards the throttle tube” (in the “cut-a-way” picture of the Throttle Control body above, to the “left”) - move it a little at a time, maybe an 1/8 turn. Remount the control and check it again. This process may take a couple tries to get the correct position of the internal adjuster.

Condition #2: I installed it - I can’t get the index wheel to hold the throttle in one spot.

           Answer: The internal adjuster needs adjustment. Remove the mounting bolt and screw the internal adjuster “in” or “away from the throttle tube” (in “cut-a-way” picture of the Throttle Control body above, to the “right”) - move it a little at a time, maybe an 1/8 turn. Remount the control and check it again. This process may take a couple tries to get the correct position of the internal adjuster.

The top right corner is the Gen 3 assembly. The two “cut-a-ways” above are the throttle tube on the left, and the Throttle Control on the right (without the clutch plate, index wheel, or adjuster wheel). The picture to the right is an inside view of a Control with a typical internal adjuster (again, without the clutch plate, index wheel, etc.).

When you receive the unit, everything is preset except, you need to set the internal adjuster for your bike - or, you need to place “some” end pressure on the throttle tube—the amount is set by screwing the threaded internal adjuster in or out (“left” or “right” in the above drawings) depending on your actual bike.
