    Hi, I just got a new V7 Racer. I want to install Rizoma Spy R mirrors but need to remove the insert in the clip-on that the bar end weight threads into.

    I briefly tried using a vice grip and that did nothing but strip off some paint.

    Does anyone know how to remove them?

    Yeah I need to do this also, as one of my inserts rattles and won't hold a mirror stable

    I believe they are press-fitted and likely even tack welded into place. Easiest solution is to replace the bar with an aftermarket version (sorry to say). You can't use the stock inserts?

    I used the stock inserts on my V7R with Rizoma mirrors. The bolts provided with the mirrors screwed right in.

    I bought the $11 rings and stuff packs and used the spacers. It works fine that way. Maybe one day I'll get different grips and move the whole grip and switches assembly out a bit to compensate for the gap.
