They are held on by hex socket bolts (allen). To get to the hex, you need to remove the plastic chrome caps. Generally, a sharp knife carefully wedged between the cap and the bolt will allow you to pop it out without damage. Also, loosen the rear bolts first. When putting the bars back on, tighten the front bolts first, then the rear.

Handlebar removal it is stuck

If the underside of the handlebar is stuck on the upper yolk after you have removed the four bolts, just give it a sharp rap with a rubber mallet from underneath. There is a knurled area that tends to bind but is there to assist clamping and prevent the bars from rotating in the clamp.

Adjust handlebar height on Schwinn Varsity

I'm answering 7 years later. I have a Schwinn Varsity 2500 Bike made probably in 2015. The Schwinn Varsity Bike is not set up the same way as a traditional bike. I loosened the center compression bolt and the two side stem clamp bolts and it came loose where I can adjust it up or down but, there's nothing to tighten the slack up below. I did some research. My original post here was to add or remove a spacer. I think you can remove a spacer to lower but, I don't think the stem is long enough to add another one. I've seen they sell an extension that you can add-on to make the handle bars higher.

you do not usually need to take the bolt all the way out to adjust handlebars. just loosen 2 or 3 turns.

the "wedge" on the bottom has probably dropped down into the tube and is too deep for the bolt to catch.
you may be able to get the bolt to catch if you can turn the bike upside down and tap the tube gently to get the wedge to drop and then do the bolt up a few turns while the bike is upside down..
i realise this can be awkward if you do not have help, in which case it may be easier to pull the handlebars out (if the cables are long enough), hook out the wedge and replace it before dropping the handlebars back into place.
another way may be to remove the front wheel and try to push the wedge back up on to the bolt with a screwdriver into the bottom of the tube.

please feel free to ask again if you need more advice.

How to remove handlebars?

The handlebars are connected to the stem by 2 or 4 bolts. Undo these bolts and the handlebars will come off.

You will need to disconnect the brake lines if you are completely taking the bars off.

How to get acsess to my handlebars to tighten

You must remove the Nachele to get to the handlebar risers. They are bolted through the top triple tree. Of course, you must also remove anything that prevents you from gettng the nachelle off such as windshield, fairing, and headlight. Note: Sometimes if you turn the front end fully to one side, you and get to the large nut or bolt from the bottom side without removing he nachelle. Turn the front end to the other direction to get to the other nut or bolt.

Now, keep one thing in mind, the handlebar risers are mounted in rubber bushings. This is done to reduce handlebar vibration. Harley has used this vibration dampening system for years on their big twin bikes. Your handlebars may not be "loose" but move due to the rubber mounting. Before I went to tearing my bike apart, I'd feel of some other bikes handlebars first and compare it to what yours feel like.

You can get more firm bushings for the handlebars. Matter of fact, you can get steel bushings that eliminate the rubber mounting.

Go to this site and check out page 990 It is the V-Twin manufacturing catalog and shows the handlebar riser bushings. Good Luck

I am considering converting the clip handlebar on my hyosung gt650r to the high handlebar of the hyosung gt652s,can you advise me how and what to replace or look out for.thanks

Simply type in 'Hyosung parts' in your preferred search engine and look for the replacement handlebar kit for an 'S'. Instead of the handlebars clipping on to the sleeve at the top of each fork like the 'R', the 'S' set is bolted on to the two other bolts you see on the inside top of your handlebars. It's as simple as buying the 'raising' kit, bolting it on; unbolting your existing handlebars and re bolting to the raised 'S' style kit. About a half hour job with a shifter!
