Does anyone know how you get the stock bar end adapters out of the handlebars?  :087:

I just pulled the stock bars off all together and installed Woodcraft clip-on bars, however, I recall fighting with the old '13 D675R bar end weights until I came across this article:  https://www.triumph675.net/forum/showthread.php?t=39100 Not sure if it's the same on the D765 but Triumph doesn't usually change up a lot on their bikes once they figure out a fairly workable and repeatable system.

I wonder if that's the 'standard' for all production line bikes now? 

When employees are put on production targets, there is bound to be quality suffering. Maybe not to a large degree, but maybe to the effect of: 'She'll be right, mate,' instead of: 'That's friggin' brilliant.'

In my various careers, I have worked on automated production lines where each function is completed within the allotted time frame. Simply dropping a screw or having a massive sneeze can put you behind. You might then have to follow the bike on the automated line to the next station and try to finish your own job while battling with other staff performing their function. On that basis the job is either half done or neglected. Sure, quality control is supposed to arrest this, but in my view, quality control is merely a buzzword to convince the end purchaser that all has been built to perfection.

And that, my friends, is why there is no 'Quality Control' process in the production of marriage. It is a losing battle :008:
