Smile Removing Tip Over Bars

Does anyone have a secret to removing the tip over bars? I'm trying to install J Pegs. I took the single allen head screw and used a rubber mallet but only got the back side to break loose. It would not come all the way out since the front tube only moved a fraction. Anyway, thanks in advance.

Re: Removing Tip Over Bars

May have been bent in a tip over. Just have to work it front and back a little at a time. Also may need some rust breaking fluid. Put a strap through the opening and use a weight to hammer the strap outward might also do it.

I had to hammer on mine with rubber mallet while wiggling them towards me. Took a little muscle but they do come out.

Re: Removing Tip Over Bars

I got the old kind made from a solid hunk with milled out holes. I use a regular hammer. Keep hitting it while pulling and it moves out a little each time.

Just Go

Re: Removing Tip Over Bars

Be sure that your progress is equal, both front and back. Focus on the side that has the greatest resistance. If they are not coming out straight, side tension will create a jam.
