Default Highball end caps

Maybe it's me, but I have lost 3 - that's right, 3 - end caps from my highball's throttle-side handlebar. Has anyone else had these pop off? It seems fine to operate with an open bar, but a pain in the butt to keep ordering and waiting for a new piece of plastic.

Any thoughts on how to get it to stay in?

Thanks Saddlebag, and no, work sux.

Do people really glue in their end caps? I may be a little hard on the throttle, but I don't see that changing soon....

If they keep falling off i guess instead of buying new ones a drop or two of glue would be cheaper.

You're right dtmmil, the answer to "do people really glue end caps is, "yeah, you do Jackson!"

Can't hurt right?

New grips would solve that... I hate my stock Highball grips too firm.

Mine came off. I wrapped it with a little silicon tape for snugness. Hasn't come off on its own since and I can pry it out without too much trouble. Would be wary or "glue".
