Bar ends tend to get really stuck from corrosion (rust). The best way I found, an air impact gun, much like the ones used in tire shops to remove and install the wheels on cars. A less expensive option is to get a manual or hammer driven impact driver to do the same work. Tool 3 8 in Impact Drivers 71700
This is an example of the hammer driven tool, no endorsement implied. I have no idea what brand mine is.
The tool can be selected to turn Right or left. When you hit it with a hammer the tool is driven into the fastener (bar end) and induces a slight twist. This shock load works great for loosening tight threads.
Usually when you drive a bike it's very noisy and you feel vibrations through your body, this will prevent you from hearing a call ring or call vibration, that light on the scooter shows you when you get phone calls (is activated by the waves of the call you get on your cell phone).
If I recall correctly there is no split pin locking the nut in place. Look at the faces of the nut. Any drill hole filled with a pin? Grab a propane torch and heat the nut/bolt. Try not to burn the paint. Tap the nut faces with a small hammer to assist in breaking the nut free from the rust holding the nut in place.
Use a hex socket or hex box end wrench. If you have an impact driver, use it with the hex socket. If you don't have an impact driver I strongly suggest you get one. They are low cost and the most used tool in my shop. I sleep with mine close at hand. If that nut is going to break free the impact driver is what will do it.
Please rate this solution after the impact driver has removed the nut. Thanks for the top rating! :)
