    Remove bar ends - noob help

    Good evening,
    I'm a new rider and couldn't find this one in a recent search.
    Trying to remove & replace bar ends on my 2002 triumph speed triple 955i.
    Removed hex bolt and nothing-The bar end is still in place. Pliers only strip the metal, it rotates but does not remove itself. What am I supposed to do to get it off the handlebars? Please help with suggestions

    Try tapping on the outer end of the bar end. (Right on the allen screw. Leave it in, but loose.) Then it should just fall out. When you get it out you'll see why.

    This man is correct. Once loose, a tap on the end of the allen wrench will release the locking mechanism. A simple YouTube video should show how it’s done.

    Cut 3 inches off each side of the bars and you'll be set.
    Anyone seen my 10 mm wrench?

    Yes, it worked by tapping the bolt end, and released immediately. Thank You
