1" handlebar end caps needed after handlebar change-out?

Does anyone know of any 1" handlebar end caps? I changed my handlebars on my 2018 Speedmaster and am having issues finding 1" end caps. The one's on the beach bars screwed in and won't work. Any suggestions? Thanks

I was looking everywhere for exactly this today. But i want brushed metal ones which is making it impossible! I would also prefer ones with a bit of weight to them so they stop bar vibration

Here is a list of the ones I found that may help you:

- These ****ers are 7/8 but really nice: https://www.dimecitycycles.com/silve...-bar-ends.html
- These are black: https://britishcustoms.com/collectio...r-adapter-flat

Most online motorcycle sites have them: Revzilla, etc. I had some from my daughter's Honda that I used.

I used just the expandable rubber insert from ones I found on Amazon. I had to sand them down a bit to make them fit into the handlebars. Then, I found some flat washers that fit perfectly into the original caps (about 6 of them). I screwed the original end cap filled with the washers into the expandable insert inside the handlebar.

They look like they came from the factory that way.

This is exactly what I want, but don't have origional ends as the thruxton came with bar end mirrors.

I'm sure your local dealer can get some original ones for you.

Another option...I just typed in "1" bar ends" on Amazon and quite a few came up.

Oxford do universal endcaps in quite a few fetching colours and thicknesses.

I opted for Oxford Aluminium Motorcycle Bar Ends 1 as they come with 2 sizes of rubber and the thicker one fits in my 1" LSL bars great.

Yes, most sites have bar ends but they are 7/8" and I am looking for 1". Not too many options for 1" out there.

I like this idea but don't think I have the stock ends around anymore. Great idea though!
