I cannot believe these things are on there so frigging hard! After everything they did I am beginning to wonder if they welded the damn things on so you cant change them for the nice CNC bar ends I sold you so cheap!

Maybe you will just have to sell them here on forum now! lol

What are you going to do if you want to install new grips? I would go back to the dealer and insist on new bars.

they probably loaded em up with green loctite, very tough, they actually grey loctited the ADJUSTABLE gear shift pedal! on mine.

Could you try spraying liquid wrench or something in the threads to try to bust it loose?

I find it more concerning that your dealer just gave it back and said, oh well! If the RbW system went haywire or you just needed to change out grips you're screwed. How can this not be a warranty issue?

There is a whole other thread on the tool and size. This forum really is like the movie groundhog day. Once the entire forum comes to a consensus, a newb shows up, and we start all over

I guess I spoke to soon... The tools worked like a charm on the non-throttle side but today I tried to remove the throttle side bar end and it won't budge...

Bump ratchet it. If you have to, get a torch if you don't plan to reuse the bar-end.

thanks for the advice. i asked about getting a warranty issue. no luck as of now. im 215 lbs it held me up no problem. i used an impact wrench nothing. i can change the grips they use an air gun if they are rubber. if i want to use metal grips like rizoma i cant as of now. when i change the sprocket i will bring it up again
