busa spikes

ok this may get a little confusing but ill try to explain the best i can. if any of you have ever seen my bike youve prolly noticed the spikes on my bar ends and on the grab bar. thes things are most definatly spikes, ver pointed at the ends. well, ive looked and looked and looked for some that are the same for a fairing dress up kit, and to put on my undertail but i cant find anything like it. everything else has grooves or are twisted blah blah, im looking for spikes that pretty much... if you can picture this, are like a snow cone cup. all smooth, pointy as t, and are a cone all the way from tip to the surface it butts up too. ive seen some that are similar, but are rounded off at the tip and have that course diamond cut looking stuff to get a grip on and wrench it on. im sure the guy who had the bike before me just used like a rubber strap to tighten it on, at least thats what i would use. but if anybody knows where i could find somehting like that , that would be just awesome.

you need a rubber strap wrench.

it basically has a rubber strap the loops around a plastic handle.


or, IMHO, get an old drive belt or something w a strong rubber base(mouse pad?) Wrap it around the bar end, then use large pliers to grip and unscrew them.

Likely some type of red or blue thread lock was used. make sure you wrap the rubber the proper direction to tighten not loosen up when you remove it.

I know what you are looking for. Contact Roaring Toyz in Sarasota FL, ask for Kevin, tell him Roger (Torch) sent you. He has those on his busa and should be able to get them for you.

Check with Jerod on here (Forgottnsoul). He has the whole spike family living on his bike (windscreen, fairings, bar ends, etc). I took his bike apart with him the other night. On removing the spikes, use some painter's tape or similar to wrap the spikes with, then you can GENTLY loosen them until you can get them off by hand.
