Hey everyone, i have been unable to remove the bar ends on my 2019 CBR500R. The phillips head screw in the bar end is so unfathomably tight that it makes me believe you cant remove by just unscrewing it. Any ideas

I had to use a hand-held imact, wity a rubberband style wrench to keep end from turning too. be sure to use anti-seize in threads when assembling.

I use a slip joint pliers to keep the bar end from spinning. I wrap the bar end in duct tape to keep the pliers from making scratches. Then I use a ratchet with a phillips bit to get enough torque to loosen the screw.
