Shift lever rubber pad on V-strom

How do I remove the old one and install the new one?

I can cut the old one off, but there's nothing removable to install the new one.

TIA

2004 DL650 - Blue
Yes, a DL650 can definitely do a major smokey burnout!!

This is one case where, "If it don't fit, use some Vaseline and a bigger hammer" nearly applies. Vaseline is a petroleum product and bad for rubber. Use some silicone or a strong solution of dish soap and water to lubricate the rubber and force it over the end knob.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I'll try for the soap deal. It just seems odd that the new piece has the hole in one end larger than the other end and both are too small for the rod, especially with that non-removable end knob.

Hmmm - the hole is too small and the rod is too large. Makes it sound like a different situation, but that one always works out so hopfully this one will too. :~)
