Acerbis handguard install question

Hey all,

I'm installing Acerbis multi-concept handguards onto my '04 Wee.
I have a quick question about proper installation.

When i remove the stock bar-end weight and insert the Acerbis one, It bottoms out on the "Nut" that the stock bar-end bold used to screw into. This leaves about 1.5 inches of the Acerbis insert hanging outside of the handlebar.

Am I missing something like you have to cut it down to fit? Or is the answer much more simple than that and I can assume my seat on the short bus is reserved for good?

Thanks for any suggestions.
