Throttle tube problems

I have an 07 600rr and I'm having some trouble with the throttle tube. I just put new grips and bar-ends on my bike and now the throttle is sticking. The bar end is rubbing against the grip, but I can't get the grip to go on any farther than the little lip on the throttle tube. I've already taken the grip off and tried putting it back on twice, but it won't go any farther.

Also, my throttle tube has some play in it. I know it's supposed to have some play when you twist it but it also has play going right to left, towards the kill switch and back towards the bar-end. I'm not sure if that is normal or not.

I know for the first problem I can normally cut the grip so it will fit, but the grips I bought (Driven D3) have collars on both ends so I cant really do that. Can I shave off that lip on the throttle tube? Any suggestions? I can add pictures if anyone wants.

also one more Idea I use and works great is put some soap inside the grip just a light amount and it will slip on just fine and then let is dry and you should be all set bud let me know if that helps

trim the grip so it doesnt hit the bar end.
or maybe trim the bar end.

w/e works best for the aluminum grips.

Here's a pic with the grip on and no bar-end:




I'll get a few more pics posted tomorrow. There is only a little bit of play, maybe like 1mm side to side. I just wasn't sure if there was supposed to be any play there, but I guess it's ok.

Mxrider: I can't really trim the grip down, if you look at the pic there's a collar on either end of the grip. What I think I'm gonna do at this point is just trim the lip on the throttle tube so I can slide the grip on further.

Alright I got it worked out, I just filed down the lip on the throttle tube and the grip slipped right on.

^ that is what I did to get it on all the way,, but I find the bar end still rubs the grip and causes the throttle to stick,, what did you do to sort out the throttle sticking problem?
