I was trying to remove the bar ends so I can install some crg arrow bar end mirrors. I was planning on installing them with the adaptors but when I finally removed the bar end screws I am in able to get the adaptors in because the plug in the bars that the stock bar ends screw into are in there.

How do you remove this? Is it just a matter of getting a puller and pulling it out or do I have to drill it out?

How are your bar end mirrors designed? Mine had a hole in the end where a (don't know the name but it mushrooms out inside the handle to lock it in place), and all I did was take the stock Phillips screw, put it through that hole in the bar end mirror, and put 3 washers behind it to not squish the grip. Boom. Done

I used a mechanics punch phillips thing. idk what its called i had to hammer it and twist and it came right off. And then with my lane splitter mirror i had to grind down part of it and then bolted it right up.

yes I used an impact screw driver and was able to get the screw off with not too much effort. It appears they are either welded in or pressed in I will look at it once I get home from work and will see if I can get it out with a slide hammer other wise I will just drill it out thanks.

this thread summarizes why i haven't bought bar ends mirrors. It just appears to be difficult for the noobs out here with limited tools.

I did the air box mod last night, and i had a hell of a time just finding screwdrivers. (yeah i'm know, i was never a tool guy)

so i sure don't have impact screwdrivers or a slide hammer.

Those screws are hard to get off because of the evil lock thread design they used. It actually has cruel barbbed serrations that require impact tools to remove.

I had to modify my bar end mirror to be the right legnth but I just used the hole in the plug like Eurobeaner.

Any idea how to get the plug out that is pressed or welded into the end of the handlebars? I removed the Phillips screw easily with a small electric impact, but the plug that stock bar end screws into needs to be removed for my mirror. Maybe just peel the grip back and get a good set of pliers on it to work it loose?

You should weigh the effort to remove the plug vs. the effort to modify the mirror mount. I ended up just shaving a little off the mirror but yours may be different. Either way, its a small demolition job...

My mirror actually has its own plug that goes into the handlebar and then spreads out and tightens down when you screw the mirror in. So I either need to remove the stock plug or order new mirrors :/
Can you try like Eurobeaner suggests above and, instead of the expansion plug (just toss that part of it), just use the stock screw through the mirror end cap in to the bar plug?

I thought about that, but I would have to grind off or turn down the stud on the mirror stub that I have so it will sit flush against the honda plug. I have a lathe, but it's a nice mirror so I will just put it aside for another time. So I scrapped that idea and I'm looking to pick up a Rizoma bar end towards the end of the week. Motovation is going to test fit some on their Grom and they have a couple different sets in stock.

Sit flush against the Honda plug? I used washers to space my mirror out from the plug inside the bar. Took 3 from my memory

Aahhh yeah I could have done a spacer, but I want the mirror to extrude as little outside the grips as possible. It's nice to still be able to push the Grom through doorways or tight passages if need be.

I'm thinking I will just upgrade to a mirror or two like these: Universal Mirrors by Rizoma Bikes Accessories -
