    Do covers fit with throttle conversion

    Thinking about getting the throttle conversion kit but wondering if the covers fit with it, looking at the jettribe cover or the riva

    anybody have the throttle conversion kit installed and use a cover ? if so which cover?

    Thanks

    I put the Riva bar extensions on careys ski and no the cover wont fit. It does fit after using a razor blade to cut a little X where the handle bar ends go. That way they can poke thru. Any upholstery shop can sew a little tube in that area to close off the holes though.

    i put the same extensions on mine as jerry has done and my cover doesn't fit as well as it used to but i didn't cut a hole in it, i just put the cover on as well as it goes on even though it is a really tight fit.

    no two covers are alike from the factory... some of them are so out of whack they won't fit on a stock ski and we gotta send them back... it's hit or miss.

    My cover won't fit, but i prefer not to cut my cover. My aunt is a seamtress by hobby, hairstylist by career... so she said she'll open of the seems and make it fit for me and last resort add an elastic band to the cover in the handlebar section so it has the flex to stretch wider.

    Riva kit, bars don't go into the stock "pockets" anymore but it does fit....just EXTREMELY tight.

    Some send their covers to upholstery shops to have small extensions sewed onto them.

    Can you do the finger throttle without the extensions?
