Bar ends

I'm completely stumped as to what I should do now, when I got my bike from the dealership, for some reason a few nuts and bolts were loose, one being the right bar end, as a result it's been lost. I wanted to see what I needed to buy so I took the left one out (big mistake) and now have managed to push the rubber down probably further than it should go. 


I went for my first service today using the workshop the dealership uses, the bloke had a look to see if he had any that would work lying about but he didn't, now 50km later I'm at home with a missing bar end (because it wasn't tightened in the first place) and one rubber stuck in the bar.

Ideas?

Heavier weights are better for damping vibes at the handlebars.

What do I need?

I only have a lexmoto xtrs 125, is it worth getting heavier ones? How do I get that piece of rubber out, it's a good few inches pushed back, mechanically I have no idea what I'm doing... I could get replacements for a fiver and drill out the current one?

the piece

of rubber inside the handlebar won't do any harm... If you don't feel up to removing the 'bars, and extracting the rubber, just remove the other original one, and fit a new pair. Only a few pounds.  


Whereabouts are you? Anywhere in Pembrokeshire, I'll sort it for you..
