919 Bar ends

Hello,

The left bar end spins and slips out a little. I've tried to tighten it, but it just spins. if I pull, it appears to be attached to something on the inside, and will come out a little, but not all the way. I don't have any pics at the moment, and the bike is at home, whilst I am at work.

I'm not sure if I should just yank it out or?
.
I'll post a picture or two later as I am sure that would be helpful

The left bar end is often loose on the stock bars. It's held in there by rubber grommets that are meant to expand and grab the bar from the inside. The phillips bolt at the end pulls it all together and squashes the rubber out. Don't yank it out. I tightened mine by loosening the bolt pulling the guts out, spinning and pulling, and lathering it all with loctite and putting it all back in. Much better now.
One of the rearsets also sticks out further than the other when looking from the rear. All part of the charm of the 919.

Jeez, mate, you don't need to go on about it, we got it the first time - you're not talking to Queenslanders here, y'know!

It's all that time you spend alone on the island, mate, with just bees for company...

Oh Beehave! I told a fib. I can't get crack here. I know what happened, for some reason this site has been playing up for me recently. Others pics not loading up, delays. My posts sometimes don't show up for a good while after I send. I should've waited but after not seeing my post show up I regurgitated it again.

Not super familiar with these bikes yet, but I did notice the rearset thing and was scratching my head about it. Is there a reason for it to be that way? Are there parts common with a bike that has a normal (non-underseat) exhaust?

Edit: Wait, I was thinking about the passenger pegs, not the rider pedals. That's weirder

IDK why the right rearset sticks out further than the left. They're cast item so maybe Honda's cast isn't an exact mirror of the other?

That'd be me.
But I grew up in Sydney and moved here 25 years ago, still a blues supporter though

There is a round spring clip that holds it all together and nice an tight,
someone must have removed it.
Islandboy has a link to a parts website that sell it, they are about $4 each. I have the link but it's at work.

Here's the link.

Partzilla. Still have 30% discount. I don't always buy off them but they do have a very useful system for finding and identify parts. An exploded parts diagram of all the bike components with a key to part description and number.

Peter I didn't realize you were an aussie. Yeah I sweated buckets living in Queensland. Worked on a prawn farm in Far North. Moved back to tassie years ago.

I will translate. A sand groper is someone from Western Australia.

All part of the charm of the 919.
The stock bars from my 05 are the same as the factory manual shows.
There is a wee hole that a sprung retaining tang on the inner weight is supposed to engage.
This is what is supposed to preclude the inner from coming out.
If that tang has been bent down, or broken off, or not been located such that it can find the hole in the handlebar, then the inner is subject to moving out.
If the inner is properly located and retained, it should never come out.
As for the outer weight, I found one side tended to loosen more than the other, and my quick fix was a dab of silicone seal on the threads of the mounting screw - worked like a charm.
Meanwhile, the LSLs I use on the Renthal ULs I have had on for years, work like a charm and stay on without any extra help.

Yep, we have cane toads or banana benders from Queensland,
Cockroaches from NSW
Mexicans from Victoria
Crow Eaters from South Australia
Sandgropers as above from Western Aus
can't remember the others off hand, maybe Islandboy knows

I was thinking along friendly derogative terms.
Taswegion is like (Queenslander, = banana bender or canetoad)
(Newsouthwelshman, = Cockroach, we can't stop them moving up here)
(Victorian, = Mexican ie; south of the border.)
Maybe these are only NSW and QLD terms.


Cane toads were introduced into QLD from Hawaii I think, in the thirties to control sugar cane bugs that were eating crops.
But the bugs were only active during the day, and cane toads only hunt at night.
Now they're in plague proportions. They secrete poison through their skin, so anything that eats them dies.
Some idiots lick them for a buzz.

Mmm... I have been told us tasmanian's have two heads cause we hook up with our sisters and such. Mine could run too fast!
I loved playing toad golf with mate's after dark when I lived in Queensland. Good times.
