Where can I buy those rubber filler strips for the grooves on handlebars?

I searched the typical online sources, but come up empty.

I filled the grooves in some Deda bars with strips of masking tape. Layed tape down on a piece of glass, then using a ruler and razor blade, cut tape into strips. Started with narrow strips, filling up the groove, and gradually worked up to wider pieces. Sounds more difficult that it was. Takes about ten minuets or so to complete the job. Afterward, the bars feel more solid than using the rubber filler strips which tend to squish around.

Just my $0.02. Your milage may vary.

Should come with the bar. You might need to contact a vendor directly.

You can fill the void with cable housing, which I did.

Get some Honda bond (silcone but harder)Fill in and let it harden.Then wrap the bars up.
