    I did not, because the Koso's were not returnable if I installed them in any way.

    I will have data on the Yamaha's, but not in time for you to make a decision soon. I won't be installing my grips until it warms up enough to be in the garage without freezing my hands.

    Like others said, Kosos needed a bit of trimming on the Left Side, but are Magic

    Love 'em

    I guess the big question is, how much trimming on them is safe? There is quite a gap without trimming of any kind. Enough where the bar end bolt cannot reach the bar at all.

    I have the Koso’s as well and after mocking them up I don’t see how I can make them fit, especially considering I have CRG bar-end mirrors mounted to RhinoMoto bar-ends. Maybe a longer bolt with an aluminum spacer? Anybody tried anything like this? If all else fails I guess I’ll have to order the Yamaha’s and give these to a friend (think its too late for returns). I wasn’t aware the Yamaha’s were shorter. Oh well.

    If you don't mind adding a spacer to make the bar length longer, then the Koso would work without trimming. They are 130mm long versus 120mm on the Yamaha grips. I haven't worked out the mechanics for a spacer though. I'm not sure what that would look like.

    I'm still waiting for some warmer weather before I sit in the garage to install my Yamaha grips.

    Did you use longer bar ends to make it fit?

    No. Clutch side was fine after trimming the ATC controller back. Throttle side I had to trim the inside of the grip back just a hair.

    Did you trim inside of the left grip to move it over the screw that holds APRC +/- buttons on the handlebar?

    On the clutch side I trimmed back the ATC mount which eliminated the screw so I used grip glue to hold it in place. Doesn’t move at all. No trimming of the grip. On the throttle side I had to trim the end of the grip on the inside just a bit to fit with the bar ends on.

    Koso Apollo Installation Video

    Here's an installation video of the Koso kit by ScooterWest's master tech Jeff Corsaro, aka "Robot". It's not a Tuono but Robot's video has plenty of helpful info. Make a pot of coffee, kick back, and hang out!

    Pretty useless video, at least for me, because the only thing I'm interested in is: how much you can enlarge (trim) internal diameter of the LH grip to be able to move it over the screw that holds APRC +/- buttons to the bar and not destroy the grip itself. This is Aprilia's specific and is not shown in the video ️.
