Are Throttles and Dual Hall Sensors available in different sizes?

I bought an ebike kit from PSWPower on Aliexpress. The problem I have is that the fixing for the throttle is way too small to fit on my handlebar, and there is also no space for the Dual Hall sensor.

I would prefer to keep the original handlebars and not replace them for thinner ones. Are throttles not available in different sizes? I'm not having any luck finding any.

The same also goes for the Dual Hall sensor. The bike just doesn't have the clearance for it. Maybe I should have gotten a PAS sensor instead?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

e bike throttles are for 22mm handle bar ends.
The dual hall V12L PAS sensor is foe sqaure taper bottom brackets, if yours is Sq taper then you need about 8mm clearance. if not enough clearance then you need to get anew bottom bracket with a longer axle.

Thanks for that Nealh.

What is the reason for only making ebike throttles for 22mm handle bars?

You will have to ask the China Manufacturers that but likely answer is the type bicycle standard bar end is now commonly 22mm whether mtb,hybrid or step thru and many twist throttles or half throttles are like wise so thumb type throttles follow the same pattern.

The 30mm of drop bars/tourers are simply not catered for.

I would recommend you get an additional bar (often used for mounting lights, cameras, or cycle computers) and then attach the throttle to that.
Cleans up your main bars, but still keeps the controls in reach.

Something like this:
eBay
or lots more choices at SJS

Thanks Nealh. I'll bare this in mind for future bike purchases.

Thanks Phil. I think something like these are probably my best bet for now.
