Universal bar end installation help

My bike was missing the right side bar end when I got it, so I stopped by Cycle Gear today and picked up this set in black:

http://www.cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?L1...I_BA13A-C0001B

Motoboss20knurled20bar20end 410x410

I thought this was going to be a pretty straightforward R&R deal, but it doesn't seem to be going that way for me. The allen head bolt's don't seem to be the same thread size, and these came with a rubber piece that's supposed to expand inside the bar, but doesn't seem to have a place to fit into.

Am I doing something wrong, did I miss a step, or was I just given the wrong set?

Thanks

U need to remove the rubber currently in the clip on, then you can install the new expanding rubber guide.


Or, go to a hardware store and get the right size allen bolt

All I'm seeing now is a metal piece in both bars that has a notch sticking higher on one side. Does this mean I need to pull all of that out?

If it comes out. Otherwise the clip on must have welded ends and cannot have universal bar ends installed.

Pix?

Hondas use a stepped bar end that mates with the lead one in the handlebar.
I've got some in stock for around $15.00.
See if you can return those.
