    Does anyone make grips/throttles for larger diameter handlebars or is my only option to buy new handlebars for my Genesis Onex?

    easiest/cheapest fix is to change bars to stock 7/8" ;)
    other than throttle/grips, any brake/clutch levers would need to be changed as well

    I just changed em. The original bend was no good for me anyway.
    This is one of the reasons the Onex wasn't a real good choice to motorize.
    The 48 spoke rims, huge front downtube and 29" wheels are all minor drawbacks.
    The thing rides like a cadillac though! Smooths out the bumps and stable like it's on rails.
    :p

    Thanks for the suggestions. I went ahead and forfeited my hefty handle bars.
    Here's my finished product.

    Thats a good looking bike! Beware of those fenders though. Its smart to replace the stamped steel mounting brackets with heavy steel. Doesn't take too long and a good safety precaution

    Oh, that's a neat bike!
    I like the colors and the rims, and the new bars look great.
