Pro-Tip: Use these Durable Glass Reinforced Plugs on the ends of your handlebars, so you don’t have issues with the throttle sleeve dragging against a rough handlebar end. It also helps to keep rubber grips from dragging against the end of the tube, and keeps grips from getting holes punched in the end of them.
Helps keep water out of the bars too, which keeps your throttle free from getting sticky/corroding or getting into the wiring (for those folks running internal wiring)… Who’d have guessed you could have a more enjoyable bike from such a simple thing?
We learned stuff like this during our years of building and repairing custom bikes, it adds that little bit of confidence in your work for sure.
These come in 1″ and 7/8″ OD for Metric and Standard Handlebars. Use them on any open tube end, MTB or BMX Handlebars, Mini Bikes Bars, the ends of our Fork Braces, etc… Anywhere you have an open tube end.
Cheap Tricks with solid results.
4 Tube Caps per kit – enough for 2 sets of handlebars.
