I have the barrons extreme 1.5" handlebars.
I have a space on the right side of the handlebars that is more than the left side. the space is about 3/8 difference.
I have the kury grips for the valk (which are longer than the X kury grips)
when I compare the throttle sleeve to the grip, the throttle sleeve is about 1/2 shorter than the kury grip.

I know it has been talked about drilling a small hole to move the kill switch housing to make the space on the xtreme bars less, but the throttle sleeve isnt going to move unless I cut the end of the handle bars to allow the throttle sleeve more room, which would change the bars and make one side shorter.

Are there longer throttle sleves that fit the X?
or
How can I fix this problem?

There should have been a spacer included in the grips to put inside the grip before sliding it over the throttle sleeve. If there was not one, make a spacer with any pipe(pvc, steel) that is 1 inch in diameter. 8)

I am not concerned about making the grip fit the sleeve, I know about the spacer, thanks

I am trying to find a longer throttle sleeve to move the killswitch and throttle sleeve more towards the center (since they are tied together) of the barrons bars so the space on the barrons bars will appear equal on each side. I had thought of cutting the end off of the throttle sleeve, but the throttle sleeve would probally stick to the bars when I glue the grips on

I know others have had this problem, and I tried searching but couldn't find how the problem was solved
