I am guessing that the innermost part is threaded?


If so you will have to move the shaft about until the end locates the female thread and start tightening it up.


Are they both threaded the same way or is one a left-handed thread?

two screws underneath the black box with the emergency kill switch.

unscrew them, the bottom will come loose.

May be able to take throttle out that way.


I learnt how to put mine back together by dropping it... but I don't recommend you learn that way :)


I'd drive over tonight and help ye, but I've no fuel till tomorrow.



if you're still stuck tomorrow, I can come over after work?

ah no.. wait.. they're held in by compression - stupid me!



loosen the screw thats "in" the barend... that releases the "pressure" build on that black bit in the middle.


once it's nice and loose.. GENTLY tap it back in with a plastic hammer / boot sole (:P)


once in.. re-tighten the bar-end end :D

cos the "join" is too tight.


screw the nut back on.


Then... HOLDING the "fatter" tube tightly, unscrew the barend again.



the bar-end bit screws into the larger, fatter tube.


might be worth some WD40 on the "join"...


lemme see if I can get some pics

see how these barends have an "integral" bolt?


that's the bit that you need to unscrew from the "main" shaft tuby bit with all the black on.

ok yes.. same principal.


The rubber bits should stop the main tube from spinning round, as they will grip the inside of the bar.


put it all back togehter again.

Do the main bolt up till it's finger tight, then give it half a turn with the wrench.


now.. insert the tube into the bar and tap it back down.

DONT grease it up, else the rubber will slip and you'll be fooked till it dries out.


once in, you should be able to tighten the bar-end side of the screw quite a bit, until it becomes very stiff.



What you're doing is "clamping" that big bit of rubber together, which forces it to push out sideways against the inside of the handlebar.


Once you've "clamped" it enough, the bar-end will be rock-solid in there..

By God!!! My son has become intelligent (at last!). Recently he asked me how I knew how to strip, clean & fix motorbike engines and 'stuff' - Told him it was by trial and error over many years. In fact, still learning but I still love to take things apart and see f I can fix them. @Fixed' an electronic power switch yesteday!


Good on you son!


Phil, if Ian can't make the Ace - Can I have his butty? :D
