Unhappy Bar Ends

Is it possible to install bar ends without the inner weight assembly?
I purchased an f4i and she came without the left side inner weight assembly. Going to cost over $100 to get the parts shipped and contemplating to just ride without it as it serves (to me) as a cosmetic addition to my baby.

*If not does anyone here by any miracle have one to sell?

They help to reduce the vibration and that's about it as far as I know. I had one missing on my bikes left side and I found that my wedding ring and little finger got numb to the point they felt as if they were cold, vibration just kept they blood away haha. Are you missing the inner piece that the bar weight end screws into? Or just the bar weight?

the inner assembly. So the inner piece that the bar weight end screws into. The clutch side. My throttle side is in there just needs a new set of bar ends which I've already ordered. Just wondering if there are any other ways of getting them on without having to order an entire assembly.

I will bite the bullet and order a new assembly if need be just the expenses are adding up on this rebuild

i run my bike without the inner weight, theres more vibration but steering is lighter and the front end feel more one piece to me

use expansion rubber type bar end; and you might need a washer on the throttle side because throttle tube sticks out a bit
