I discovered the Progrip grips that are for sale on Desmotimes really do fit over the OEM throttle tube without needing to modify it. Not all Progrip grips do that, only models that have a concave shape at the flared end and a groove at the open end that fits perfectly over the ring on the end of the tube. Hard to explain if you're not holding one... The grip DT sells are a knurled surface and I put them on the 916. Perfect for that bike, firm but grippy. Went to Cyclegear for some fluids and found they have also had a model of Progrips that have the same features to fit the OEM tube. They were softer and more suited to the ST. Installed both sets, good to go.
If anyone needs a smooth throttle tube that is supposed to fit a Scrambler, PM me. Special deal, just for you!
