\'02 sixxer stock bar end question

ok, so before getting on this morning i saw this hanging out of my bar. i just pulled it right off, it wasn't even threaded in anymore. in fact it won't thread in at all. before i go digging in there and possibly wreck something i thought i'd ask you guys for some advice.

about a 1/4" inside the bar there is a rubber piece. am i to assume that on the other side of that is a nut just bouncing around in there? do i have to get that rubber piece out of there with a pick or something?

i'm also curious why Suzuki uses that oversize nut for a spacer, seems kinda weird. in the pic, that is the exact order that it came out of the bar.

thanks in advance.

I had the same happen, behind the rubber on mine was a flat washer and a nut like the one
in the pic. I had a hella time getting the ruber out. When I put it back I sprayed some conact
cement on it first.

how'd you get the rubber piece out without mutilating it? you used contact cement as a thread locker, is that what you mean?
