I was installing my bar end mirrors on my S and the screw fell off of the rubber insert inside the bar. How do I get that rubber insert out?

Misread your post. to get the rubber piece out, try using an allen wrench (L shape). If not, try a hanger.

That piece is held in by pressure the screw causes. The piece should drop out if you can lean the bar over enough, since the screw is out now.

Happened to me once... sometimes those things swell up in the cold... luckily mine was close to the end. Well, personally I'd take the other bar end off and stick a high volume blow gun of a compressor in the other end and watch it fly. But I agree, a hanger would be a wise choice; that or something larger and more rigid.

here's a link to the Ron Ayers microfiche for the assembly:

your S model has clip-ons, right? the nut will be floating around inside the bar, and with any luck should drop out once you extract the rubber expander. have you tried reinserting just the bolt with the bike tipped towards that side, to try to 'catch' the threads of the nut behind the expander - sometimes they stay more or less in position, sometimes they drop deep into the bar.
good luck.

If you can't get enough leverage with a coat hanger, try shooting some carb cleaner through the hole, tilt the bars in that direction to let the liquid seep in, then try and pull out with a hanger.

+1 to using the compressor, I lost a shim for my bar end mirror and it worked like a charm!!
