How can I remove the bar-end weights on my Honda?

I’ve had my Honda motorcycle for a few weeks now and I want to replace the handgrips with something a little more comfortable. To change them, I need to remove the bar-end weights. Any tips on how I can remove the bar-end weights on my Honda?

Answer
Congratulations on getting your new motorcycle! The bar-end weights in your handlebars are meant to keep your hands steady while you ride, but not at the cost of your comfort.
To remove your Honda’s bar-end weights, use a #2 Philips head screwdriver and loosen the screw at the end of the bar-end weight. Once the screw is loose, the bar-end weight should come off without any issues and you should be able to replace your handgrips.
While you’re taking the time to make your motorcycle more comfortable, take a moment to make sure that you’re comfortable with your motorcycle insurance. If you feel like you’re paying too much on your premium or worry you’re underinsured, the Jerry app can help.
The savings keep coming even after Jerry finds you great insurance at the lowest price. Before every policy renewal period, you’ll be presented with new competitive quotes, which means you’ll always have the best coverage at the best price. If you want to switch policies, that’s fine! Jerry can help cancel your old policy.
