Mine's not like that and the others I have pictures of aren't the same.
It looks like your bar end may be loose and is slipping out. Try slackening the screw in the end and then push it back in and re-tighten.

Mine's about the same. I keep meaning to take some measurements to see where the length discrepancy is between the two sides.

There are punch marks for aligning the the grip and electrics. Can you see the punch marks on the round bar. If not then pull them back to the correct position. I would think this difference from left to right sides would put tension on your shoulders because you are sitting twisted on the bike.

Mine is the same but it doesn't bother me. Bar end is fitted properly and grip is not loose - no problem!

I wonder if this is just a function of how the grip was put on the bar at the factory? One employee pushed harder than the other, or a different lube, or no lube but air, depending on the assembly station or factory shift. One method gets a grip stretched and fitted wide, and the other gets a grip that's compressed and narrow and leaves a gap.

Mine is the same, I hadn't noticed. The odd thing is that if you measure to the grip, the left one is considerably nearer the bikes centre line, so in effect when your riding your hands are slightly offset. How odd?

This is the throttle side. I think OP is discussing the clutch side.
Are you saying it's only on the left side?

Wait, are you saying that the whole assembly is off? From the bar riser out? :surprise:
