    Riva sells or used to sell a kit that allowed you to keep everything stock

    I have PPG billet handlebar extensions in my stock bars, and a finger throttle (off a BMX bike's brake lever)
    You cut your stock ends flush, and tap the inside of the bars, then the extensions screw right in.

    I bought a Tigershark from ebay and trimmed the bezel on the RXP around the lever. it was like 25 bucks, its been working fine for 2 years.

    Now try riding in Neptune's Playground, where things change in a blink of eye. 3-4-5-6 foot rollers with wind and swells coming in different direction. It's a washing machine scenario IMO, the Twist Throttle was the way to go. You have a full Hand on the handle bar for grip and all you do is Twist your wrist against four fingers holding on and 1 finger (that could go numb any minute) during a ride, race, etc..... I ran this set up in the Mark Hahn 300 endurance race. I found out that people who rides dirt bike rides my ski with No problem It's natural to us. It's not for everybody. just my 2 cents you should try it.
