My stock bars are plugged on the end. Are yours?

How can I get this plug out to put handguards in there?

Thanks.

They all are solid. Some tried drilling it out but I bought different bars. You would be better off buying new bars. Your choice but what you have found is normal.

Thanks.
What is the advantage of making it solid?

Pro Taper makes some sweet bars! Try using an air compressor with spray attatchment to remove/install grips, just a tip :thumbsup:

Bad idea if I say so, If you ever did crash I'd rather buy new bars then a new sternum :)

I think it helps with strength and helps to not vibrate as much. I would just look into a new set of bars then you have a backup in a pinch.

The pro taper se bars are hollow and strong and are still a great price. 8)

I got the Powermadds at www.denniskirk.com. About $80 for the install kit, star handguards, mirrors and the parking brake bracket. Tip: if you buy at DK if you buy more than $100 free shipping.

:3question: I never noticed the stock bars, mine never made it past the 1st 24 hours of owner ship. They where swaped out right away for some renthals with cycra composite probends and tag medium grips.
