- Loosen the brake levers, throttle and switches on the handlebar.
- Remove the 2 long screws connecting the stem and the steering rod.
- Do not remove the 4 screws at the stem.
- Proceed to use a mallet to apply force on the original handlebar in order to knock the whole assembly out.
- It should take about less than 5 mins.
- Once its out, u might want to clean up the area where there is glue residue. You may choose to sand it smooth and give it a coat of paint.
- Insert the new stem adaptor.
- You can re use the original 2 long screws.
- Final step is to install the handlebar stem that you have. No shims are required.
