    The tile says it all.

    Just bough some ITM CX2 TT Bars and trying to fit Dura Ace bar end shifters. The fitting
    instructions that came said to shorten the bars before fitting the shifters. Done this and the
    shifters wont fit in! any one got any ideas.

    The bars in question can be seen at

    Small flexhone, drill and lots of time to make the ID larger. May try to remove part of the
    expanding weder thingys that help to tighten the shifters. may need to grind the main bolt down as
    well..to get to fit into the bar-Shades of Scotts!!!

  4. Done this several times. Use a dremel tool with coarse grit sanding wheels. Run in, out, and around
    the ID until they fit. Samll amount of cutting oil might help. You may also use a file on the
    expander bolt portions and rings of the bar-cons but this option is not as clean as the first.
