so im sstaring at my bike (2005 sv650s) and a pair of knuckle covers when i realize that i can t seem to attach them. the bolt running through my brake handle thingy wont fit, and isnt long enough. (as you can tell from my knowledge of techincal terms im not a mechanic type individual here) and then on the left, it doesnt seem to want to fit over the clutch cable that comes out of the handle thingy. so, what do i do? is there a special part im missing, do i need to drill holes in the covers, or am i just a blithering moron (i know i know, the answer is yes.) the knuckle covers are the ones that come off of the dl1000 (i think thats where theyre from anyway)
any help would be apreciated

The "bolt thingy" is just your bar end. From the outside of your handlebar to the center the whole assembly is like this: bar end, hand guard, spacer, handlebar/clip-on. One big bolt that runs through all of them.

Ahhhh....

Yes there is a longer bolt that will replace the bolt holding your brake lever on. Look in the yellow circle in the picture below. You can see the top of the is hexagonal in shape, and you can get an idea for the length of it by seeing how far it goes through the entire assembly (bottom arrow). If you don't have a bolt like this just stop in at your dealership and pick one up. I can't imagine it'd cost more than a few bucks, and it'll be easier than trying to fabricate your bolt/washer/nut configuration.
