For anyone in the US looking low cost replacement bar end screws, - OEM Powersports Parts from Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha at discounts up to 80% off MSRP sells it for $0.55 and shipping is $1.75 for any order under $10.
Yea thats where I have been ordering OEM parts from. I picked up 4 screws and made sure I used a properly sized screw driver for it. Have two spares right now just in case I have a future incident.

Finally got the bar end screw out by hammering #3 phillip bit into the screw for a tight fit and having my wife hold the strap wrench while I push in and turn to loosen.

I did find glue on the screw

After all this and removing my original grip, I noticed I received a defective grip. The rubber on the grip had a crack.

I sent an email to Oxford customer service. Hopefully the can resolve this soon. I can't ride without the grip and I don't plan to put back the original grip. It was a pain to get it off.
