Default Removing bar ends???

I just picked up some Rizoma bar ends and went to put them on tonight. I removed the factory bar end just fine but the insert that is left in the bar needs to come out to accomodate the new one. Problem is no matter what I try I can't get that factory insert out of the clip-on. Any tips?

hes talking about the threads inside the clip on....notice how he said he removed the factory bar ends.

the ones you got are for aftermarket clip on that dont have threads inside the bar.

oops, sorry. I thought you were referring to me when you said

"the ones you got are [for] aftermarket clip on that dont have threads inside the bar."

as in "my clip-ons were aftermarket" I actually have two piece bar ends and though he was referring to the inner piece.

stupid me

I dont think those will work on stock clip-ons, they will how ever work on aftermarket clip-ons

The threads are a part of an insert that is pressed into the stock 06 clipons. What yr is your bike? Good luck getting them out. I had to replace a clipon ealier this year and they give you the bar and the threaded insert separated from eachother, so you have to press them in yourself. I had to first clamp the clipon up in the vise, then heat the crap out of it, then proceed to beat the snot out of the insert to press it in. It aint coming out any time soon, and I doubt you'll get yours out.

Can you replace the fasteners on the Rizomas with a 6mm screw? Doesnt look like it, but if you can then do that and it should thread right in.

I figured the threaded inserts were in there for good. The picture below shows the bar end with the stock grips. That's what made me think they would work. But notice how close they are to the grip. When I bolted them up with no washer or spacer behind them, they were right up against the grip. Which isn't a big deal on the clutch side but causes an issue on the throttle side. I'll space them out a little and should have no problems.
