Arrow Burgman 200: Bar Ends

Would universal 7/8" bar ends work for the B200 or is it bike-specific? Is the OEM easy to remove?

A couple of examples are below:

Bar end weights are easy to remove, generally.

If you're going to the expense and trouble to change them you might want to consider throttlemeister end weights, they have a throttle lock imbedded so you can hold the throttle open on long trips. It's a nice clean install and very functional.

Haven't touched it but looks pretty much the same as the burgman 650 setup, so should be easy to remove.
What I have noticed is that most of the aftermarket units are aluminum/lighter than the factory weight.
This will look shiny but you will probably notice the bikes vibrations more.
If ya don't like the oem ones (I didn't like 'em much) you can paint 'em and replace the phillips screw with an allen head one that'll actually tighten properly.
Easy, & cheap.

I bought Bar-Enders for my Burgman 200. They pull double duty as bar ends and helmet locks. I did a mini-review on this site. Great in the summer when the turtle helmets get sweaty and you want to hang them out to dry without worrying about theft. I will promote them every chance I can. Great product.

I've got a set of the extra-heavy HVMP bar end weights (in stainless) and love em. This is the 2nd bike I have had them on.

I just bought a Suzuki luggage rack for my UH200. New bar end weights came with the rack, but I am unable to remove those Allen screws!! Guess I need some type of a screw impact remover. I will replace those screws with allen heads. Thanks for the tip!

Back when I had my Silverwing 600, I switched out the OEM end weights with Manic Salamander ones, and I replaced the originals when I sold the bike off. Once I got my current Burgman 650 Exec, I thought I'd switch them out too. But the thing was that the big Burg's stock weights actually seemed heavier than the aftermarket Manic Salamander ones! Not to mention the chrome color of the OEM ones looks better than the flat black of the MS.
So there the heavy aftermarket ones sit, somewhere in my parts supply boxes.
If you'd be interested in them (if they are heavier than the 200's ones as I'd guess), feel free to PM me, zmanH2.
