Noob question

Well here a noob question
I have removed the left bar end using ductape, however the right side is much tougher plus the gas handle twists and I am afraid of overtwisting the gas handle and damaging something. I used the ductape but I am not sure if I should put the amount of pressure that I could.
Any suggestions? If you have done it, let me know how?

I had a bit of trouble with the bar ends when I was switching my clipons to Helibars.

Get a JIS screwdriver, drill bit, or socket. It is a worthy investment that will save you a great deal of stress when working on the bike. If you use philips you may find yourself stripping the screw before you can muster up enough force to break through the threadlocker.

I wrapped a rag around my throttle grip to protect it and used a set of channel locks to hold it steady. Put a JIS socket on a 12" torque wrench and was able to break it free almost effortlessly - after having gruesomely stripped the left bar end screw using a philips head.

I used a leather strap (belt) hung it around the bar end and then a pair of vise grips to hold it. Used #3 phillips head screw to loosen. If you dont use the correct phillips size you can strip it as previously posted
