    Bar end weights might have lock tite on the threads to ensure they donít come loose. Ensure you have the right bit and hit it with an impact gun and they will come right out

    If itís held in with adhesive youíre gonna have to break the adhesion somehow

    get a drill bit and drill out the middle area, then a flat or something to pry the edges to the centre causing less friction to the surface of the handle bar = easier to pull out

    edit: flat screwdriver to wedge the bar end mirror mount.

    I'll post some pictures tonight. Thanks guys. I didn't think i'll get so much help from the get go. I notice the grip has slide off quite a bit. Maybe it also time to look into some new grips. I just need any excuse to buy some

    Also just some clarification. I dont think its stuck. I'm just not sure how to remove it properly. I'm afraid if l just go in with a hammer l might do some permanent damage.

    If itís not held in with adhesive maybe some pb blaster will get in there and lubricate it to slide it out easily. Wd40 perhaps. But I have a feeling there will be some adhesive

    it's probably friction fit, .002 or so larger than ID of the bars
    and pressed in, likely with some adhesive

    try driving a small screwdriver, and I mean small, in between the adaptor and the bar
    try to shrink it down to the point you can grab it with vise grips

    The solution is simple: remove the handlebar adapter.
