    2012 RT handle bar controls

    When I bought this bike 3 years ago the dealer replaced the controls on the handlebars under warrantee. The controls on the left side I would like to rotate just a bit. The horn is a little low. Can this be done without to much trouble? Thanks

    If it's the same as the controls I've dealt with recently, there is a bit of room to turn them. The wire from the heated grip is clipped to the inside of the switch housing but there's a bit of play in the wire. And while the grip is bolted to the handlebar, the switch housing is not. It's held by rubber pads so really just friction.

    I would look for the wire from the grip to the switch, then see if you can just rotate the switch body without pulling the grip wire tight.
