stick a screwdriver down....

under the grip a little way and spray window cleaner in there pullout the screwdriver and twist the grip the window cleaner will make it slip right off.

Yep; screwdriver with either windex or wd40. Don't worry about scratching the handlebar; it is under the grip area anyway.

Actually, you had them the right way, or rather the factory way, in the first picture. However, you'll find the bars are a lot more comfortable flipped like you have them. I'm planning on doing the "flip n swap" this winter as soon as I get the chance. I sat on a bike that had 'em this way, and it was waaaaaay easier on the wrists. So you're a step ahead...however, you may need to drill a hole somewhere. You can find directions for the "clip on flip and swap" very easily in the Club Cafe posting section.
Merry Christmas!

are you sure Rand Man??

Hey guys in my fist post I circled the part on my bars to the fork plate. Does anybody know the size of that bolt that fits in there?

thx

If I remember correctly, the bolt is a 6mm, and uses a 10mm size wrench. The bolt is there to stop each individual bar from rotating and just needs to be SNUG; be careful not to strip the threads in the aluminum. It's a good idea to use blue Loctite on these and all the pinch bolts of the triple clamp/handlebars. The pinch bolts are critical fasteners and need to be torqued to 27Nm.---James.
