That is frickin' hilarious!!

I'd be willing to bet it is the outside handle as mine has been a little sticky/stiff too. I used some silicon spray lube (in a controlled manner and a little spray straw) on the rear/aft end of the handle where it enters the body and it seems to be holding up fine.

There's TSB. Visit your dealer and you'll get new handles.

It is the outside handle as the name of the title suggested.
Yes, will give it an oil treatment and see how it goes.

Since they didn't have th handles in stock, they "adjusted" mine today. They seem to stick more in wet conditions and it wasn't raining. . .
