Default Throttle & Handle Help - PLEASE

I have just bought a kit (crappy one from china).. we have the engine mounted, and now when we try to put on the throttle, it is WAY too big for the handle bars, but heres the confusing part, the left handle fits perfectly. Am i missing something? Any help is appreciated a ton!

It could be that you have to drill a hole in the handlebar for the plastic peg in the throttle to fit, take apart the throttle, then put it back together on the handlebar? I'm pretty sure you can't just slide it on.

If you end up getting it on, I suggest bolting it to your handlebar. It didn't take long for the cheesy plastic peg on mine to break.

Yeah I drilled the hole in my bar for the peg and it broke on the second day. What I did was file down the peg smooth, and just bolted it on tight. Hasn't slipped after 250 miles.

Good luck!
