Bluhduh Long reach

My only complaint about BB's and Kaoko is that it's a long reach out to the the Kaoko to operate the knob. Nobody's fault, since that's the distance they had to deal with, but I do have some trouble getting my wimpy little finger across the gap between the handgrip and Kaoko to twist that sucker. Knowing what I do now, I'd probably go with the OEM handguards if I was going to fit a Kaoko.

Here is part of the instructions that came with the kaoko that's made specifically for barkbusters. It's KAO.KBB700-S for the kaoko and BHG32 for the barkbusters.
You can see in Picture 3 that the "thrust washer" is on the left, then the knobby part of the kaoko, the friction nut, and finally the barkbuster.

Initially, I thought the thrust washer goes under the throttle grip. That's the way my throttlemeister worked on my sportbike. Now, I think it's the 5mm washer shown, which is used on the R1200GS. This was the source of my confusion.

The kaoko bar end is pretty lightweight. I may revisit the duct tape and wheel weight idea, like when there's two feet of snow on the ground and I run out of stuff to do.

Just curious

I'm curious did it work with nut on the far side of the spacer?

In the instructions it says you can adjust the throttle play with the 2mm grub screw. Does anybody have a photo of this? The included instructions had some low resolution photos. Right now, I have to crank the Kaoko all the way off so the throttle doesn't stick, not a huge deal, but I wouldn't mind adjusting the play.
