Snap back is fixed.

Thought I would update this a bit just in case someone else has the problem. I also hate it when you are having a problem find a thread that matches your problem and the person just puts "figured it out thanks" and never says what the actual fix was </end rant>

The solution ended up being very simple. It wasn't the cable guide assembly. My problem was how I was assembling the butterfly. I was screwing in the two retaining screws before I was doing the bolts on the outside. As per S&S this can cause the butterfly to shift and not line up properly. Most likely the butterfly was just rubbing slightly on the walls. Once I tightened the outside bolts AND THEN installed those screws I was able to tighten the bolts and have proper snap back. Stupid mistake, but yes that is what it was.

Thank you for all the help. Sorry for the late update but I just got power back from this storm and first chance I had to work on the bike was last night.
