I will be working on this today. From what I have seen as far as information coming Loctite. The locktite needs to be heated up to 500°F to soften. I have a Tempature gun and will be heating the L wrench with a torch until the bolt reaches that temperature. I am guessing that bar end is some kind of hard plastic, so it can melt if heat is applied directly to that area with a heat gun. I will report with any problems.
