02 R6..............I assume it just unscrews........counterclockwise to remove? I went to replace grips this weekend and the bar end weight refused to loosen. I used a hex socket on 3/8 drive ratched and applied what I'd consider almost to much force and it didn't budge. Are they loctited? I did get the new grip on.........they will slide over the weight with a little hairspray but it kind of bugs me the weight wouldn't unscrew. I was afraid of bending the handlebar if I used a breaker bar on it.
i had a really hard time getting mine off of my 02 but i eventually got it. it is counterclockwise. i just put it where i had to push down and put all my weight on it. i dont think you can bend the clip on unless your morbidly obese. good luck
Don't any of you have a impact wrench? If not just use the breaker bar with the socket. It is locktited in. Be sure to use locktite when you replace them.
Just put some ass into it man. haha
I only weight 140lbs.............I ain't got no ass........lololololololol...........I really would like one of those electric impact guns....I hear they are worth their weight in gold if you do your own work.
