Bar end weights

Question

Hi, I am trying to fit heated grips but don't have a torx bit big enough to remove the bar end weights. Anyone got any idea what size it is?

 

cheers,  Bob.

Yes, a 12mm allen key did the job 👍

That sounds like the bolt that holds the hand guard into the end weight but when you take it off you need a big torx to get the actual weight off .  I have up to T55 but it's bigger than that, I feel a trip to Halfords coming on 😀

Are you happy with the performance of the grips. They look good, I'm just thinking of a way of mounting the unit so that it does not stick out as much, maybe a special bracket laser cut and bend would do the trick. 

I'll have to have a look into this once the bike arrives.

I am very happy with the performance of the grips but I have them on my CRF250 Rally so I knew what I was getting.

Oxford makes nice gear. I have the bike cover and rain gear.

I'm sure sure the heated grips are fantastic.

Good for you Bob.

What thread size are the bar end weights?

I want to get some and they are listed for mt07 mt09 and was trying to see if they are interchangeable.. Would appreciate some help.

It measures M16 1.5   I usually confirm with the proper sized tap or die and I don't have one that big.

I'm having this same problem, what size do I need to remove the bar end?  Is it an allen or a torx?

 

I went to go install my heated Koso grips but I can't get any further as I can't remove the bar ends 😞
