R&G Bar End Sliders

The R&G Bar End Sliders were easy to install and have an easily replaceable end cap, in case they are ever used for their intended purpose. I torqued them to 20Nm.

I ordered some handguards and thought I would remove the bar ends to confirm they are threaded.
Wow, are they in there tight. Never did get them out yet, as the Allen key was not a perfect fit, and
Was starting to strip the head. I think it was either a 5 or 6 mm. Do you recall what size you used?

I left the factory threaded inserts in place. The R&G screws were compatible, as are Bark Busters.

I initially ordered some Bark Busters hand guards, but they didn't fit the bike very well...so just stuck with the sliders.

Sorry, I don't remember sizes.

I twisted the bar ends at the same time as undoing the screw, that seemed to make it easier.

So as mentioned, I too twisted the bar ends while using a socket Allen key.
Left side no problem, throttle side is giving me grief.
Insert is spinning in the bar and the bolt is not backing off.
Been a long day at work, so I walked away and will get at it tomorrow with a conquering attitude.
It's coming out one way or another, lol.

Throttle side bar end out. Threaded insert came out with it.
Had to put it in a vise to get it off the bolt.
That was tight.

I like the fact that both of your levers have broken tips like mine :-) Is there any touch up fix for that, like a cover or wrap so that I dont have to buy a new set?

I simply ground mine smooth with a dremel, then sprayed a little black engine enamel on them. Other than the fact that they are "shortie" levers now, you really can't tell. I'm going to order some Puig levers soon, because my wife needs something adjustable and closer to the grips for her smaller hands. This is her first bike, so she is getting used to everything.
