Took them off. The innards, just FYI (a bit bashed from the removal).

That kind of leverage is asking way too much of those bar bungs. It's a bad design IMO

If there is enough clearance between the outer slotted sleeve & the handlebar you could glue thin strips of rubber to the outer sleeve. That would give some purchase to help stop the slipping.

Update.

So, I complained to Oxford and after some detailed discussion they gave me the value as a credit on their website (with free delivery). So can't fault that service.

Separately I got RiffRaff's cheap chinese ones. They seem better.Not fitted yet as they wont fit on the clutch side without a different bracket. I need to find or adapt one. They will work with the stock bar ends if I can sort the bracket on the other end (Its supposed to fit to the mirror stalk but it doesn't reach on mine).

I just had to make the elongated hole a bit bigger in the little metal bracket on the clutch side so the Clutch lever bot could go through?

I'm sure you can come up with something

BTW.If you can get them to fit they are superb and way better than a lot of expensive Branded ones.I get no Wind on my hands even @ 70 Mph etc and the reflective strips are a nice touch.
