Replacement Plastic Throttle Tube?

I wanted a simple (cheap/no grip specific moldings) replacement throttle tube to make grip changes easier and possibly heated grips next winter. I ordered the motion pro based on the image on the website and when delivered is almost exactly like the stock one (Raised edges on both ends of the tube and some raised moldings to match the inside of the grip).

I thought the G2 would be good option, but the reading it seems to require significant modification for heated grips.

Any ideas?

Thanks, TRM

Just grind/file/sand down the ridges on the Motion Pro, I have the same one as a spare.

G2 throttle tamer works fine, lovely smooth action and the vike runs better at low speeds. All you need to do is sand or file down the knurled section of the tube till a heated grip fits on. Oxfords sports on mine

What is the part number for the motion pro? Is it the Motion Pro Nylon Throttle Grip Sleeve - 01-0094 ?

Thank you!
