Throttle grip help


ok so I have a weird situation that happened when I tried replacing my handlebar grips. Replaced the clutch side no problem but when I tried screwing in the bolt on the throttle side, somehow I stripped it. The bolt will turn, but not move in nor out. Any suggestions on how to remove this?

Re: Throttle grip help

A pair of visegrips on the bolt head while turning and pulling?
A pair of needlenose pliers behind the bolt head, sideways, to lever outward while turning the bolt?

That's pretty much what I tried. As I was turning the bolt head with pliers CCW, I had another set on the inside between the bar end and the new throttle grip cap pulling back towards me. but no give

Re: Throttle grip help

I wonder which threads are stripped, the bolt or the jamnut inside? Have you tried tapping it inward with a mallet? Just to see if some movement will change things a little?

I suspect the threads aren't stripped, but the jamnut was just spinning inside the clip-on. Makes sense with what you described.
I had the same problem with one of my old bar-ends after a slight lowside. That's probably how I fixed it too, before getting different clip-ons.
If the jamnut slips and the bar-end loosens, maybe a different length bolt would solve it. I had that issue too.
