I know I saw it on one of the forums, but can't seem to to find it again. What is trick to removing the bar ends? Something about a mallet. I have some barkbusters coming in today.
Super dumb question. WHAT DIRECTION are you tapping it? I can get exactly no leverage to tap it away from the bar. My grip puppies don't help with access to the bar end, but with the rubber stock grip there isn't much room as it is.Unscrew the bolt just a couple or 3 turns, then tap it lightly to knock the plug loose from the bar. Don't unscrew the bolt completely, or you'll knock the plug way down inside the bar, and you'll have to turn the bike upside down to get it out.
