Handguard Removal

I've just been trying to remove my acerbis handguards, the expander bolt thing inside the bars and try as I may I cannot get them to budge!

Am I just being dozy and missing something obvious??

Cheers

Just checking Dave that you have done the obvious which is to undo the bolt and knock it inwards to release the clamping effect. 

On some fittings there is a "Rawlbolt" type of fixing which splays out to grip the inside of the bars when the bolt is tightened. You need to reverse the cation to loosen it.

Thanks Brian, yes I gave them a tap inwards, but they wouldn't budge at first. I have now removed one, just need to persuade the other one to follow suit!
