Sounds like a good idea to use the grease or anti-seize. They get rusty on the inside if you live somewhere humid or get them wet riding or washing. The old bars can sometimes be saved by pouring or spraying penetrating oil in the end of the handlebar, let them soak a few days, and heat them before trying to get the bolt out.Had some parts arrive today from CHP. New handle bars, nuts and knobs. Mine like so many others are bent, rusted and stuck. removed the knobs and both snapped in half about half way. So much rust in there. Tomor row I will rebuild the headlight switch, polish up the bar mount and install everythin. These bars are so nice!
do you guys use grease or anything on the knobs?
I like this one.THESE GUYS have them but they are not in stock at the moment. Maybe try emailing them and asking when they will have it.Other than finding the correct chain guard in chrome
