I've been slowly going through the checklist on my new to me 1981 cm400a, and I ended up ordering a new cable set from motion pro. When I went to undo the cable ends on the throttle tube, I noticed that one of the holes is round and the other is egg shaped. Is that due to wear, or is the throttle tube like this from the factory? The bike only has 7K miles so hasen't seen much use. If i do need a new throttle tube, is it best to get OEM Honda or is the motion pro tube good quality?
Any tips on removing the stock grip if thats the case, it seems pretty well sealed on the existing tube and i'd like to reuse them?
Thanks for your help!

longdistancerider, thanks for that! I was hoping that it might be ok due to the fact that the supposed "wear" that I saw was so even.
