Does anyone know off-hand the inside diameter (in mm's) of CalVin Handlebars?   I'm looking to buy a
throttlemeister and don't have the bike with me to measure myself.  Thanks.

The CalVin has bar end weights installed, with a crude bolt and nut expanding a bit of rubber to hold them in.  Won't these interfere with the Throttlemeister?

Throttle Meister replaces the factory bar ends.

The control ends of the bars are normal 7/8" OD.  I'm sure a quick message to the company will get the answer on which you should use.  Just make sure whether, or not, your bike has plugs in the bars.  That will make a difference on the hardware.

Actually, they are the ones who asked the question.  They told me they need to know the inside diameter of bars before they can tell me which one will fit.

Hmmm...  You'd think they...  Oh, never mind...

Well, If no one provides you with an answer tonight, I'll measure the California EV bars I have on the shelf in the garage, when I get home from work.

Yeah I know.  I can only think nobody has bought one for a CalVin yet and they never looked into it.

There ought to be only two sizes on that bar end -- Harley and everyone else.  How many sizes does throttlemeister offer?

It should be about 3/4" (assuming the wall thickness is about 1/16").

That's the part you see.  They are stepped down to standard 7/8" OD under the switches and grips.

Yep.  I believe the outside diameter is 22mm, so I would guess the inside would be about 20mm.

I dug a tote out of the snow and pulled three different EV handlebars.  All measure 18mm ID.  DOn't know if the Vintage is different, but I suspect not.

I went thru the same thing when I wanted to order a set for my Calvin, what size bars, etc. Got side tracked with another project and never followed thru. Would be curious and thankful if you could post the part #'s you receive and if they fit / work properly. Thanks

Sorry it took so long.  Here is the info on my Throttlemiester receipt: 
Moto Guzzi - others with 18mm-I.D. Bars  Standard:    FT & AL

It seems to work well enough so far.
