Bar-end mirrors installation

So I was trying to install my eBay bar end mirrors on my stock handlebars, they're the kind that has an expanding nut on them. There was plenty of room on the left side, but on the right side, the part that the stock bar end weight screws into was out too far, with no room to put the expanding nut mechanism in. Any ideas on how to either push it in or remove it completely?

If there's not a good way, then I just have another excuse to purchase Renthal's.

Thanks!

It might be different since it's on the throttle side? They say the tang is 12mm in and I can't access that far in. The clip at the end I was able to remove on the other side, but here its pretty stuck, and the plastic throttle assembly lip sticks out further so i can't get a great grip on it.

Can you remove the throttle tube?

I'd prefer not to, since that would require me to remove the handlebars, but I can if necessary.

You can just loosen handlebar mount bolts so the handlebar slides over or release cables and slide throttle tube off that way. Good time to lube cables and tube.

Even if I get the throttle tube off, will that help in getting the weight nut out? Does it just come down to getting the retaining tang out?

I'm not sure if that retainer tag does need to be bent down or the grips removed.
In that link I gave you, the last post by Doc. He says no need to remove grips. Just use large diameter washers between bolt and bar. Then turn bolt and back out the insert.
