DENMONKEY: I don't recommend those grips. I tried them and they fell apart in no time at all. Just like your throttle one which is starting to break down. Don't waste your time
yash shah: I feel vibrations after 90-100kmph in my Royal Enfield classic 350....Can you suggest something to reduce that?
Travis Ross (TwistyTravster): I filled my handlebars with beach sand, along with those same bar-ends. It worked great. I also put bonded sealing washers in between the handlebar mount and the triple tree. That worked great as well.
Overall, I don't think there is one solution. You need to use a combination of different techniques to reduce vibration to a reasonable amount.
Kit Walker: I have a honda unicorn but none of the products are available in India guess i will need to improvise!
hoptard: I wouldn't use steel BB's, they're harder and dampen less. I use lead BB's (way softer and absorb) from a "Dive Shop", they come in a bag. Or you could use fishing line smaller lead weights. Hope it helps, did for me.
leftfield123: I had an '05 Vee Strom that buzzed quite a bit until I put bar risers on. After that, I never really noticed any buzz. Might work on other bikes.
TroyaE117: Lead shot works well. I have used them on an old Russky bike.
James Roe: Even BMW's have vibrstion, but you have some good tips .. ty... Im starting with the Grip On grip covers first..
Graham Dorschell: Thanks for the vid - I found filling the whole bar with Silicon worked good too . G
alanIrl99: Good layman's guide & summary - very useful. Thanks for that :)
Ron Klucsar: Thanks for your mention of Vibranator in your video. I recently started working for the inventor of Vibranators and we have had a lot of great feedback from our anti-vibration technology that inserts into the handle bars. Here is a link to our website www.vibranator.com Please let us know if you have any questions on our product. We would be glad to offer any feedback.
cvcoco: Ok, two ideas that work. On a Yamaha FZ150 and a Honda CB750, I cut small squares of inner tube and placed them inside the lower half-moon of the handlebar clamp. The way the clamps are designed you cannot run a strip completely around the handlebar at the point of the clamp so dont try, but they will accept a few layers on the bottom bowl. Anyway this gives about 25% reduction in buzz, to the point its manageable. Second way is that dirt bike crossbar pad bars, correctly positioned and tightened, give a huge reduction in vibration. But of course they are ugly and take up a lot of accessory real estate. But Ive found that isolating the bars from the triple clamp is the most effective. If I had access to machining tools I would grind out the existing bar clamps and install a thick rubber donut all around. Not doing that well will result in bars that cannot be tightened firmly so thought has to be given to the project.
hoohoohoblin: You're welcome.
jo sal: people like you just make life easier. thanks.
hoohoohoblin: I have some similarly thick squishy grips on my Suzuki, and they really do make a difference.
john wayne: i know i was shocked, tg i didnt pay for the assembly of the bike
hoohoohoblin: That's strange.
john wayne: i just found out on my 07 zx6r i found padding inside mine and also a 8mm socket, but bought the bike brandnew
hoohoohoblin: You're welcome. The foam grips really do make a big different if you get the really soft kind like I have on my Suzuki. You might also try raising the handlebars or switching to a more upright bike if you are putting a lot of weight on your hands.
