Loosen the screw for the bar end weight...don't remove the screw...pull, wiggle, pry out the weight assembly.
Look under the housing at the inner end of the grip. Two Phillips head screws. Take 'em out. Note if one position has a longer screw. Pry that housing apart as far as it wants to go.
Loosen the throttle cable adjusters. Take the cable barrel ends out of their slots. Slide the throttle tube off. Clean that part of the bar.
Lube the inside of the new tube with dry graphite that won't gum up with dirt. Put everything back together. I like a dab of silicone grease on the bar end rubbers. Adjust the cables. I like the cables with nearly zero slack. A too-tight return cable keeps the throttle from snapping shut when released. (Does the Glee have a return cable adjuster, or did Suzuki pinch a few Yen there?)
