New heated grips, a bit to small :(

Hi.

So i was kinda dumb. Watched some installation youtube videos and saw that they used the touring version of oxford heated grips, but i was not smart enough to think that there might be a diffrence in MK1/2 and my MK3.

So i ended up with this space between the bar end and the grips itself. So im just wondering if anybody know a bar end that goes longer into the bar or any good tip what i can put between it?

I wouldn't worry about it, you could buy a thick plastic washer to fill the space

Do you have the MK 1,2,or 3? I am trying to figure out whether I should get the Touring version or the Adventure version.
