I make and sell them.

I have them in stock and can ship saturday.

Just PM me, I'll get you all the Paypal info.

the R1/R6 tube will work... but there are draw backs. It's not a true 1/5th (72' rotation) more like a 75 to 80' rotation and the tube is shorter then the Kawasaki tube so there is a gap between the end of the grip and the bar end weight. The rubber is also different so your grips won't match.

if you are riding a track only bike... most of that won't make a difference, but if you are riding on the street and want your bike to "look" OEM and correct, the 1/5th is the way to go.

Good to know about the R6 tube, I wasn't aware of any of that.

Can't go wrong with Rifleman's insert, it's a solid mod and you'll never look back.
