Hi all, I want to repaint my handlebar ends but can't seem to remove the first one. Is there a knack or is it simply a case of unscrewing the retaing screw and using a slide hammer to remove?
Cheers
Mike

They should just slide off, leaving the inserts.

I'd start trying to rotate the end weight once the counter-sunk screw is out. Try introducing some releasing agent at the grip end (roll the grip back a little).

If your bike has BMW heated grips, the threaded section of the insert has a roll-pin that stops it coming out but the non-heated grip version may pull the inner tube and rubbers out with it.

This is what is under the weight:

The roll pin:

I seem to remember a different style weight on my 91 K100LT.  I believe that it has a wedge type of arrangement.  With is you would loosen the screw but not remove it and then tap it with a hammer to drive the wedge out of the bar end weight.  I've had them off before but I really don't remember how.  I just remember that it wasn't hard.

The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

All sorted now. The bar end weight was pretty fixed into the bar via a bit of surface rust. Took quite a few blows with hammer and chisel to shift it.
