Kaoko throttle

Just ordered the Kaoko throttle control for the 1000 standard, then found it has 17mm id on the handlebars, Kaoko say 14mm so beware. Have fixed the problem though with a piece of 1/2 inch hose pipe! That will hold until I replace the bars.

Update, have replaced the hose, would not stay tight. 17mm alloy tube drilled out to 14mm and split so that it will expand. Tight and snug now and the Kaoko works a treat once you get used to it.
