    About to pull out what is left of my hair.

    So I purchased this Riva finger throuttle kit wit the aftermarket grips and I have to so is these thing no worky with ODI. The damn spacers that come with it aperently need to be cut down. (Now that I have them on and cant get them off.) Even if I were to trim them so the ODI's fit flush, the end caps will not fit. WTF. And I doing something wrong???

    Thanks,

    Robert

    yes, u have to trim the spacer. u can get rid of the right spacer completely. the left spacer you will have to cut down, you only need about 3/4" to fill the gap. to get around the spacers being so tight i just dremeled out a little material from the inside before i put them on. its probably too late for that now but in any case you need to get the spacers off. you can cut them off and find something else to use as a spacer.

    Ok. So I have installed the extensions and the ODI grips. It seems that the end caps that are provided by ODI will not work with the Riva extensions.

    Are you all using these end caps instead:
