Handlebar grips

Post by kenelm on Sat 18 Aug 2018, 12:38 am

Hi, I'm trying to sort out annoying videos through my right hand. I took the end weight and noticeed someone has put a spacer on to stop the end of the throttle grip touching the bar end. I think the grips may be aftermarket. Should they stop flush with the end of the throttle tube? The inner weight and a manky looking clip are in position, if I install the bar end as on the part book it snags the throttle.

Mine end flush with the tube, the weight goes in, but does not touch the tube.

My original grips measure 127mm total length. They go out about 5mm outside the tube, barely covering the lowest part of the bar end weight. Do you have the original handlebar on it? If not the inner weights could have been mounted too far in, maybe...? Or your aftermarket grips to long?

I will measure later, the clips may have been pushed in. 
Thanks for the info. Ross
