Welcome From Canada

to the forum. If the bar end weights are anything like the 2015 650 ABS, you need a real good allen wrench with possibly a pipe on the wrench, then use copious amounts of loctite . I thought I was going to twist them off, I used a electric impact driver once I broke them free, bolt is a standard forward thread. Turn counter clockwise to remove.

Welcome. My wife and her girlfriend just returned from several weeks exploring Florence and the surrounding countryside. She thought it was beautiful and has decided it is almost impossible to get a bad meal in Italy. And no, of course she didn't gain any weight, but her suitcase did. She took thousands of photos but, strangely, not any of motorcycles. I cannot understand.
