    Need access to wiring of Luna full twist throttle.

    How does one get access to the last screw holding the throttle wiring compartment together? The one under the rotating grip flange...

    Best regards,

    A picture would help. I will say I was taking apart a S-A 5spd twist shifter to replace the cable and getting nowhere. 2 or 3 screws were removed with no results.. The trick was going inside the hole for the handle bar and lifting a couple of tabs and sliding it apart. YMMV

      Been inside the hole and saw the tabs... but how exactly to get them to disengage all at the same time???








      Thank you Calfee,

        I have never had one of those. Try putting a wedge somewhere to apply pressure in the direction you want to go. I used a hooked tool to lift the tabs one at a time and as long as I maintained tension the tabs didn't snap back.

          Roger that, I follow you.

          " I used a hooked tool to lift the tabs one at a time" Handmade? wire, metal? Shape, size...

        I have so many probing tools from a lifetime of auto mechanics that I can't recall. I used to get these sets of picks from the tool trucks that looked like mini screwdrivers. One was an awl one a hook one had a right angle tip. The one I think I used was straight with a slight bend and a very small sharper bend at the tip.

          Calfee your posts inspired me to give it another go! Stopped by and picked up this set from the dentist ... errr hardware store :-)





          Poked and pried and pulled...hit the right combination, and off it popped! Without the proper tools, and the "wedge somewhere to apply pressure" I would not have gotten it. Thank you again!


          If anyone is interested in the interior...














          My very best regards,

            Had to laugh tho, in the interest of full disclosure there was no third screw! Just a plastic molded post and insert spot. But grip still had to be removed to gain access...

            So the pick the lock method works O.K. And as I do it time and again , it's getting easier. But looking for something a little more easier.

            T.P. roll to the rescue! Thinner pliable plastic tubing the correct diameter for my throttle removal tool.

            Here's the lock pick pack on the right, throttle parts, and tool material.

            Version 1.0...




            Version 1.1 parts...





            Version 1.1 assembled...





            With a look at the design tab grabbing design...





            So I know what your thinking, how's it work? :-) Well, it's not quite fool-proof, but probably about twice as good as the pick method.

              After getting a good idea of what's needed to unlock the assembly...decided to try version 2.0.


              Took and modified a paint can opener as required...Original on the left, modified on the right.








              Mostly fool proof and easier to use. ;-)
