Are the handlebar control clusters pinned to the handlebars??
« on: October 27, 2013, 02:06:30 AM »
Had heated grips installed by the dealer on my Trophy.

I could swear now the clutch side control cluster with the turn signal switch and computer control buttonry used to be more counterclockwise than it is now, it points decidedly downward. 

Seeing as one needs to remove the radio control box to remove the clutch lever assembly and that has to be removed to get at the bottom screw for the cluster....

my question is... is this cluster pinned to the handlebars and thus cannot be rotationally adjusted...????

Many thanks!

Yes the controls are pinned but they can be rotated a small amount. I moved my controls when I first got my Trophy. They were pointed down too much.

OK, how much can they be rotated please???   I loosened the screw I can get at and was able to move the cluster maybe 3/32"  up and down...

There wasn't much moment but I know I turned the controls more than that.
