Sorry I didn't see this sooner.

The best solution I can think of for getting a throttle on the left side is to slide the brake lever closer to the center of the bar (brake handles are long, you'll still be able to reach) and just move the current throttle on the right side over to the left and just have the kill switch face down. That will give you the best feeling throttle while still giving you access to your brake lever.

If you do a lot of trail riding you might want to invest in a sled with EPS (Electric Power Steering). I rode for decades without it, but it does take a toll on your hand eventually.

If you have any other questions let me know and I'll do my best to help.
