Anyone have the Riva bar extensions/finger throttle kit?
And how do you like it?

what does Riva use to mate the finger throttle and the plastic steering cowlings? you know that little inbetween union piece?
i got the PPG extended bars kit with finger throttle half way installed, and pardon the bashing, but it honestly sucks... for my standards and eyes, it's not a clean install. they took the stock plastic piece and cut it and sanded it and chewed it up, and just, ughhh
so i'm either gonna see how bad riva will rip me off for their piece (which i think will ONLY be black, whereas my RXT is chrome there) or i'm gonna have to sit here with epoxy and matte black paint making my own plastic union piece to mate the throttle to the steering.

Very cool! The bar extensions are made from very heavy metal. The plastic trim piece looks a bit flimsy, but maybe once its installed it stiffens up once its wrapped around the pad trim.
This is much better stuff than my first handle bar extension kit.
