G5 attempting to fit bar-end mirror throttle side handlebar. Using correct size allen-key and hammer/long bar cannot shift it, that allen key is in there real tight. anyone else have problems ? Larry

Dunno if it helps, but my B5's bar-end weights were held very tight - there was a heavy application of some sort of thread-lock on the allen screws, which was hard to break, and even after I did, the screws backed out quite hard all the way.  I was a little concerned about stripping something, but the replacement screws went in just fine...

They're held in with red Loc-Tite, it takes SERIOUS torque to get them out.  You can try tapping with a hammer or some heat from a torch or heat gun to soften it.  I just went with a ridiculously large wrench.
