Of course you could just replace the whole throttle tube with one that has an adjustable friction nut https://www.amazon.com/Emgo-Single-Thro ... 623&sr=8-2

The Kaoko are a hard fit if you have grip heaters installed in the bar or run with bar end mirrors/ helmet locks.

If you switch to a throttle tube with a friction nut, replace the friction nut with a Throttle Mate. Had that on my 2001 Patrol (2001 and older Ural 25mm had friction nuts). https://throttlemate.com/

Is it made from diamond-encrusted platinum? Holy crap.

I will never know. Maybe it's the same stuff Klim jackets are made of.

Have the Vista-type on the XS and a small Throttlerocker on the Ural. That Ural “skinny grip” issue solved with a pair of slip-over foam grip covers. Overall, the Vista is a better bet for long-haul cruising.
