My Barkbusters should be arriving today for my 2017 AT.Just unclip the bar-end screw from the internal dampener and leave the damper in the bars with whatever hardware is attached to it. You may have to move in back in a bit (depends on how far you pulled it out) as you add the bark buster hardware.
The dampener has o-rings supporting it and unless you push hard and shove it deep it is not going anywhere.
My service manual (below) shows the Handlebar Weight Bolt  and the Snap Ring . Does the Bolt fit into the Snap Ring? Is this what I'll need to un-clip?
If so, do I need to pull the whole assembly out a bit to un-clip it? And does the new Threaded Insert (8) on the Barkbusters kit get clipped back onto the Snap Ring?
Thanks in advance! I'd like to have a good idea of what I need to do before monkeying around with stuff.
