Ask ScooterDad: My son has an MGP scooter. We tried to replace the grips but had great difficulty removing the end caps on the bars. Are they screwed in? Any suggestions on removing them would be appreciated

Answer: 

Most bar ends are just pushed in. Some do have expanding metal sections with a bold down the middle. If your bar ends are metal and they have a bolt in the end, you'll need to loosen that bolt to remove them. If they are just plastic without a bolt, grab them with some large adjustable pliers, like channel lock pliers, and try to pull them out.
