Question Kaoko Throttle Lock Install Issue - F800GS - OEM Guards

I received my Kaoko Throttle lock yesterday for the F800GS with the OEM BMW hand guards (P/N CCF900).

For some reason, once I had it installed, it feels like it is always on, no matter what setting that I put it at.

Originally, I had an issue with the handguard, because it was touching the mirror and I did not have enough of a gap for the lock, but I opened up the guard a little and I was able to get it to fit. From what I can see, this will not affect the lock, as the rest of the guard will simply move inboard.

I have two ideas:

1) Based on the instructions, move the throttle inwards. I have searched the service DVD, but I have not yet found how those marks are supposed to line up for the throttle installation. Does anyone know or has seen how to do this? i.e. move the throttle and line it up?

2) Make a new spacer for the OEM guards that is a little longer or simply add a washer of an appropriate size to the existing one. Anyone try this?

I can post photos later today if it will help.

I have also emailed the supplier, hopefully I will hear back, but I figured that I would put it out here first.
