Replacing bar end weights

I have bought some Bike-it bar end weights, these are shaped like the ones in the picture, but when removing the standard ones from the bike they are flat witth out the mushroom stalk bit.

I have been sent bar end weights that dont fit even though the packet say they do or is there something else I need to remove?

Cheers Rob

Yep, you have to remove the clip-ons. The end weights you have just purchased insert into a 7'8" handlebar.

Cheers Red Dog.

The ones in the photo arent the exact ones it was just to show you the shape.

So if I remove the clip ons I can then fit the bar ends?

The stock clip-ons have a theaded insert to accomodate the stock end weights (as you've seen). You can most likely drill/dremel the welded end out of the clip-ons so you can change to a universal bar end but you have to justify if it's worth the effort. I am unsure about the availability of replacement bar ends that use the stock threaded mounts but there may be some options. Most people fit aftermarket bar ends to aftermarket clip-ons or handlebars. Remember that with aftermarket ends you won't have the extra weight that dampens vibration. You may not like it.

Remove the centre bolt on the new weights and remove the stalk as it were then the new weights will bolt to threaded insert in the clip on ,you may need a longer bolt tho

You probably wont need to saw anything off them as there is probably enough recess in the clip on to take the weight bit of the stalk just removing the rubber expanding bit should do the trick

SV1000s Bar End romoval difficulties

Hello SVers,

I have bought some new bar ends, but I am having a dickens of a time getting the factory ends off. The black ones, and the Phillips head screw to get out is nearly impossible without stripping the bloody thing...

Looking to fellow SVers for ideas, advice, words of guidance? Is there anything simple? It doesn't seam like it should be that difficult?

Thanks,

patr16cks

Heat them up and use a manual impact and they come right out.

ok, so sorry for the aged thread bump but i have got a small problem and this was the closest subject...

SV1K S, standard bar ends.. Left hand was spinning so i nipped up the allen bolt no problem, alll snug. It was spinning again after todays ride so I thought, easy peasy, just nip up the bolt again.

Nope, no nipping this time... Allen bolt just turned and turned. Darn.

I then undid the whole bolt to take the bar end off completely and thats when it went weird. A powdery dust was coming out on the thread of the allen bolt. Not metal, almost like a hard rubbery dust. With the bar end off, inside the bar was 'something'. Cant work out if its a goop thats gone hard or some other substance but there is no threaded insert for the allen bolt to go into. Its only when i started reading here that i find out the standard clipon is solid? and should have a threaded hole for the allen bolt to simply go into.

I should point out there are heated grips on the bike (dont laugh, already installed by the time i got there) so it has an Oxford grip but its the left side, thats just a bigger grip with elements glued onto the clip on, right?

Anyone got any idea what's going on on the inside? What should i see on a standard clip on?

If i can i want to put the standard bar end back on (for the weight and i dont like carbon/anodised bling) but i have nothing to screw into that i can see.

Please dont tell me its a new clip on needed.... thats another chunk of cash that would stop the new tailcans fund from growing!

Is the powdery stuff the thread locking compound often used on bar ends?

Sadly not...... Closer inspection this morning shows that I have fallen victim to a previous bodge job of some kind.

The goop looks like some kind of liquid metal/epoxy that the bar end allen bolt was simply pushed into and my previous nipping was the final strip...

I'm also thinking I dont have standard bars.. The have HEL stamped into them and rise up a couple of inches above the top triple clamp. Is that normal?

Not sure what to do now... I will have to get all that crap out of the end of the bar and work out what my options are. I'm pretty p!ssed about this as i dont think i will be able to avoid a new 'bar... 130 for a genuine one...

I'm almost inclined to re-bodge it.. more crap in, and do the same as the previous plum who did this...

Can someone point me at any kind of video or pictures that show me a standard bar end removal so i can see what i need to do to make as good a job as possible please? if someone were to whip off the left hand bar end and take some pictures i would be soooo grateful.

I've run out of time to pull the RHS off and see what's going on in there but that will be this afternoons task after the job interview i have. Priorities and all that!

as ever, any tips or bright ideas will be very gratefully received!
