I extracted this information from Tom Christian off of the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group. In Tom's own words:

I was sliding my Eldo around on the lift from the right side while holding the throttle and the throttle assembly pulled right out of its housing. On inspection, I found the retaining ring had either come out of its groove in the housing or broken - couldn't tell. It was a spring steel ring, not a typical retaining ring shape, and felt weak. I measured and ordered a replacement from McMaster - worked perfectly. Thought someone might be interested in the part number for future reference. (McMaster-Carr part number 91580A235)
