Default Bar ends?

Several months ago I installed the HMD Gorilla Bagger bars on my 2013 XCT. I am trying to find some bar ends that work with these bars. Right now, I have the stock chrome bar ends which I really don't like. I had to silicone these in so they would not fall out. I am trying to find either a plug or a shorter bar end in black that will fit well in the bar and won't eat a hole in my wallet.

My initial though was to find a plastic plug that will fit in the end of the bars but, I cannot seem to find anything. I am almost to the point of trying to make something that will work. I am not interested in long bar ends, just something to cap off the end on the existing grip. If I didn't already have the stock heated grips, I would just replace the grips.

Has anyone found something that will work?

I didn't care for the plastic bar ends ether. I got these from Vic Baggers for $30 bucks. They are held in with O rings, but aren't that positive of hold. I'm going to try some hair spray before I go to silicone.

I went with Kuryakyn ISO grips and weighted bar-ends and I love them. The ISO grips come with a small end cap that looks damn good, the ends are removable, which means they can be replaced with a weighted end, throttle boss or be customized.

Are the bar ends compatible only with the ISO grips? I don't have the ISO's but need new bar ends and loved the weighted ones on my sportbike.

I sure like mine but I also added the throttle boss.

You'd need The ISO grips to attach the Kuryakyn weighted ends.
