Did help, Thanx
I just notched the existing opening until the cables didn't look so pinched.
On our ride this summer I noticed the throttle feeling a little "notchy."
I had purchased the new cables and modification kit in Loveland, Colorado on my way thru but I guess they didn't know about the new handlebar cover.
