Bar-End Question

I notice on my ride home the other day that my right bar-end was slidding out a little bit. My bike is a 02' 919 with about 5K miles on it. When I pulled on the right bar-end more come out than I expected and way too easy. There was basically nothing holding it in but grease and friction, turning it does not cause it to tighten. The left one is loose to turn but cannot be pulled out easily. (I haven't tried to pull hard.) He is a picture of what came out of the right side. Is this normal? How do I get it to stay? I want to put on bar-end mirrors but not until I get this fixed.

They suck and the new bars will work better at reducing vibration anyway. Just buy new bars and be done with them.

Suggestions? How much work is this and at what skill level?

I believe, but don't quote me, that you are supposed to slide that into the bar with the screw loose, or out for the bar end, and when you slide that in there, and attach and tighten the bar end weight, it will make that snake expand, keeping it inside of your bar.

I could be 100 yards off tho. Just a thought.

Removing the stock bar ends and anti-vibe assembly from the handle bar.

The anti-vibe assembly has 2 metal tabs which hold it in place. If these tab(s) are broken you are out of luck.

Actually, this is perfect. I wanted to get rid of these anyway so I could put the bar-end mirrors on. The arlicle was exactly what I needed to get the other one out. Thanks!

if you're not in a hurry for the bar ends I will have some CRG's for sale once I get my Rizoma's.

I have a pair. I just noticed one was damage after I got the first one on. Hopefully cyclegear will replace it. I just bought them this morning.

I'm sure they will take care of you. At least we hope so.

I have not yet had time to go back to cycle gear, maybe tomorrow. However I absolutely love the way the bike looks without the stock mirrors. The bar-ends give much better visability behind to and to the sides as well. I just need to get used to look down in stead of in front for my mirrors.

One really cool think about having the mirrors gone and no windshild is that it feels like you are flying. You see nothing but helmet and road while looking straight ahead.

We need to get together once you get your bar end mirrors sorted. I've considered going that way with mine, but I'm not sure I'd be able to get used to using the bar end mirrors. Of course, right now I'm still getting used to using mirrors I can actually see with. The ones that I had on my Nighthawk were basically just for looks.
