to take it off you need new brake cables to replace the split ones and dont waste your time takingit off, just leave it on, you payed for it, and hey if you keep riding someday you will have a use for it, I cant use mine yet but I will someday...

To take it off, and replace with straight cable (ONLY FOR STOCK GYRO CABLES):
You will need:
1) Possible headset spacers (2 2mm ones)
2) straight cable

Procedure:
1) Unhook gyro cable from lever.
2) Unhook gyro cables from gyro.
3) Unhook lower cable(s) from gyro.
4) Remove lower single cable from cable hanger.
5) Loosen pinch bolts on back of stem.
6) Take out bolt on top of stem.
7) Remove entire bar/stem combo.
8) Remove upper gyro plate if possible.
9) Remove gyro.

To remove nonwelded gyro tabs:

Materials:
1) Seatpost
2) Hammer
3) 8" bolt
4) 4 thick washers
5) Nut for the bolt

Procedure:
1) Remove fork.
2) Take out bearings/spacers and carefully save.
3) Flip frame upside down.
4) Using old seatpost or screwdriver pound the top cup out. Constantly move device around outside of cup to prevent distortion.
5) Remove gyro tab.
6) Insert bolt through both cups.
7) Put 2 washers on the outsides of each cup.
8) Tighten bolt until top cup is firmly in place.
9) Put bearings, bearing races, etc. back on.
10) Replace stem/bars.
11) Tighten top bolt until headset has no wobble, yet spins freely.
12) Tighten pinch bolts firmly.

Brakes:
1) Put barrel end of straight cable into lever.
2) Route cable through desired path.
3) Cut off extra housing.
4) Put cable through cable hanger.
5) Once desired position is achieved, tighten bolt.
6) Cut off extra cable.

There you go.

Sorry for trying to help. Won't happen in the future.

Oh, and it just so happens that some people actually like to have good brakes.

EDIT: If you take the gyro off, I"ll send you something for the gyro + lower plate.
