You may be asking yourself, what do motorcycle bar ends do? Or if you’ve never had a motorbike with them on and your new bike has them, you may be frantically wondering how to remove motorcycle bar ends. Well, what they do is simple, they protect your bike and help make your ride that little bit smoother. The simple fact is that motorcycle handlebar ends stick out about an inch either side of your bars so if you take a scrape along a wall it will be the bar ends that take the brunt and if you drop the bike, again, they will take the force and you won’t end up having to pay to replace your whole handlebar or throttle tube.
The bar ends also, in a roundabout way, help to stabilise the vibrations transferred from the engine through the frame due to them being ever so slightly weighted. They don’t weigh enough to throw you off balance when you turn but they add just enough to the end of your handlebars to reduce the frequency of the vibrations. At GetGeared we have flat bar ends, racing bar ends, big ones, small one but none as big as your head. Our full motorcycle bar end range is packed with variations from colour, to size to price, so if you don’t have any or your current ones have seen better days, head to GetGeared online or in-store for your bar ends and save yourself the potential pain of buying new bodywork.
