9'er OEM barends

How do you remove the inside part of the bar end from the stock bars? I tried lifting the 2 tabs up but it didnt seem to go anywhere?

Page 13-6 of the Shop manuel shows just exactly what you are dealing with.

If you want your stock bar to remain prestine, carefully put it in a padded vice. You could take a piece of pine, bore a hole thru it, cut the wood in half, and go that route. Whatever route you go, you need that thing held down TIGHT! Now, take a 1/2" thick piece of oak or maybe a length of angle iron aprox 18' long, drill a 1/4" hole in the center. Take your handlebar weight off. Using your weight screw, attach your length of wood to the handlebar weight. Now you have something substantual to pull with. I recently took the weights out of the clip-ons of my 929 so I could put on HeliBars. I'm guessing it took aprox 150 lbs of pull to get those things out. Maybe get a buddy to help.

In your case maybe you could attach a piece of wood to both weights and stand on one and pull on the other. Like I said, it takes a good deal of pull to get them out, don't wreck your back.

Report back.

If you reinsert the stock screw & push in both lock tabs while pulling on the screw. It should just pop out real easy. Mine did.

Maybe it was because mine were in for 6 or 7 years before I decided to pull them out, but mine were in there but good. The distructions with the HeliBars said "Push in the tabs, twist, and pull." in my case, that simply wasn't going to get the job done.

Red face Try this !!

Hi Guys

I've got a better solution. Push the inners in further, then the vibes will reduce a lot. I did this when I fitted my new barends. so much better. I discovered this by accident, and I'm I glad I did. Go on give it a try!!
