I just changed the handgrips on my RS so I had to get the installation instructions from Throttlemeister. I bought the bike used and they were alreadly installed.
I do not know what the situation is with your Throttlemeister is but depending on how much wear you have on the rubber end of your handlebar grips you might have to replace the shims/spacers inside the Throttlemeister. These are located inside the end unit. To access them loosen the allen bolt on the end of the Throttlemeister leaving the bolt in the end unit. slide the end unit off the inner shaft, you should see some of them stacked up on the allen bolt.
The Throtttlemeister works by moving a brass cylinder inside the end unit up against the end of your handgrip and holding it in place with friction. The trick appears to be getting the right shims in place so that in the fully relaxed position your throttle should snap back to idle on it's own. Moving the Throttlemeister with the throttle should then hold the position of the throttle. Taking into consideration the concept of the design it is obvious that it will be sensitive to temperature due to expansion/contraction of all the components. Simple logic would say that turning on your handgrip heat might help the operation.
I have not had my bike for too long nor have I had the opportunity to check just how well the Throttlemeister functions, so take this all for what it is worth.
Good Luck To Us All!
