Did this video help you?

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.

CBR1000F Kiwi MotoVlog: I watched this video, then added anti-vibration weights... Huge difference, thanks.

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.

TellyToby: thanks for this - after 14 years of commuting on a number of sportsbikes. am starting to suffer from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome...gonna try foam grips (grip puppies) and bar ends for starters - should definitely help ! appreciate it.

hoohoohoblin: That might work. On Harleys, the handlebar brackets mount to the forks using a bolt through some rubber donuts, which is the same concept. It dampens the vibration, but makes the bars a little wiggly.

hoohoohoblin: Thanks. I just took a look at their website. Those look like they would do the job. It is a heavy metal weight mounted on rubber, which would absorb high frequency vibration.

gordo5555555555: You mention the vibralators (or something like that) which are similar, I think, to the anti-vibration inserts by FASST. I tried them on a dirt bike that was buzzing my hands to sleep and they did the trick. I definitely recommend them. Vibralators sound kinky so maybe they are even better!
