Throttle Sleeve....HELP!

Anyone know where I can find a throttle sleeve for my 7/8 bars? I tried to do a grip replacement and ruined my original sleeve.
I know the dealer has the whole replacement, but I am just looking for the sleeve or someones old grips.

Thanks in advance.

Also- Any thoughts on where I can get extended clutch cable and brake hose since I put ape hangers on?

Cheapest suggestion would probably be to keep an eye out on ebay for someone parting out a Vulcan.

There's one HERE from an '05 for $26

I'd be sure to contact the seller though. If the one they are selling is the one pictured, it doesn't quite look right. Looks to have a chrome sleeve that isn't on a stock one. That doesn't mean it wont work, but be sure you can return it if it doesn't.

It has an aftermarket grip on the stock sleeve.

I might have the sleeve that you are looking for. The local salvage yard in town lost their lease and is having a fire sale. I picked up about 4 boxes full of VN750 parts for dirt cheap and I think I have what you are looking for. I'll confirm when I get home tonight.

Good news, I've got the entire right side (wiring and all) and in great shape. Send me a PM including your address and I'll get it off to you.
