Default Curvy bar and problem.

Hi all, just bought some nice shiny alloy bar ends and got all geared up to fit them when ... unscrewed the standard weight and found it just bolts into what seems like a flat plate in the end of the bar!
Not the usual squashable rubber jobbie as found on most bar end weights. Question is ... how do they come out? As i can't fit the new bar ends until the end of the bar is clear from the obstruction. Anyone come across this also?

They are welded in unfortunately. Does the "rubber jobbie" have the same size central screw?

In the process of installing bar-end mirrors

I found that the threaded hole is 6mm.

Yeah, new bar ends are same thread as originals, guess I'll have to remove so.e metal from new bar ends so they butt up against the solid bar so as to leave no gap! Classic example of suzuki trying to re-invent the wheel!
Ah well... it's all fun n games modding a bike eh.

Yes it's an S , can't see any way around the problem tbh, I'll just have to cut the portion off of the new bar ends ( part that fits inside the bar) a d then just use the bolt to screw into the original hole in the bars.

Just that the Ns aren't fitted the same way.

Don't think it will be too much of a problem but what should have been a relatively easy swap has turned into a needless modding fest lol.
