It's funny, I actually opted for the Oxford Adventure version and Storm handguards before even seeing this thread. I put them both on my Versys X yesterday and had the same problem with the glue: too much and it got between the throttle tube and handlebar, inhibiting free operation. So now I have to take the throttle off and try to free it up by sanding inside the tube itself and handlebar. If that doesn't work, then I'll need to buy another throttle tube and right side heated grip. I'm fortunate that's even an option, because with factory heated grips, it often isn't. I was also very careful in that I covered my tank when applying the glue in case it dripped. And drip it did. So I moved on to the other side, and at some point the throttle side kept dripping, so I have the fantastic, permanent Super Glue rivulet cascading down the right side body panel. Man I loathe working with that stuff. It always feels like defusing a bomb in its angst. But, that's what happens when you're playing beat the clock with the sun and it's below freezing outside.
I did have to trim my grips at the ends in order for the factory bar ends to seat all the way in. I think that has more to do with I should have moved the left hand switch cluster in a little bit (if that's even an option; they're often indexed), and the throttle side I thought I had pushed on all the way but hadn't. I can see about an 1/8" of throttle tube.
Regardless, I have recently come to adore Oxford. They make really high quality, well thought-out stuff.
