7/8" Bars, Stock Controls?

Hey guys, so last night I couldn't sleep, decided to buy some clip-ons. Going for that cafe-racer look on my newly aquired VLX600.

Well, I didn't realize they were 7/8" until a few hours later, and I know that OEM controls/throttle are 1".

I was hoping to be able to re-use the OEM stuff, as I'm not really comfortable buying a 7/8th throttle tube, not too sure if what I pick will accept the throttle cable on the VLX600.

So could I use a shim of some sort to put behind the throttle assembly, front brake, and clutch to allow me to use them on the 7/8ths?

If not, does anyone know of any cheap(er) 1", 39MM clip-ons that aren't from bing bong land? Trying to have this bike done by March, and those things wouldn't even get here until then.

Thanks guys.

TJ Brutal customs has clip ons for 39 mm. Your controls are all 1" and you will not be able to use them on 7/8 bars.
