If you are going to run any kind of bar end on the throttle side, I would imagine you will need to cut the end off the throttle ube entirely to make sure it doesn't catch, but you are then more likely to get dirt in the throttle tube than if you had left it fully closed.
This will likely get a better answer in the Modifications and Performance forum...

BTW, where is "Six Mile" and do you ever race BMX at the track in Columbia? It is about 5 minutes from my house.

Bit late but,
You are going to fall off at some stage so dirt will get in if it wants to by conspiring with the dirt under your front wheel & the dirt that seeks a new home under your throttle. Teamwork huh?
When you cut the end off the grip etc & put the bar end in make sure the throttle is far enough away not to scrape. Plastic of the tube slides better than the rubber that will grab. Plastic bicycle ones will probably get ripped out easier than flat metal ones. Bar inside diameter will have to be the same.
