Default Throttle / Grips issue

Hi all.

I've recently bought some new grips for my 600f and can't get the throttle side to fit. The throttle grip has heavy knurling on the plastic, which means the new grips won't go over it. The old (standard Honda) grips were practically moulded around it.

Here's a pic of the problem

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement throttle cover for the 2013 600f? Does it have to be a smooth cover? As you can tell, i've not changed grips before.

Thanks.

They can be very tight to get on and I don't mind using a few bubbles from soapy water to help if the normal struggles persist, followed with a hair drying and manipulating them.
I guess now everyone's saying noooo to this but I've changed loads like this and always do a neat job in wiring them on as well. Let's face it, nobodies gonna laugh if one comes off in your hand lol.
Best of luck mate
