    Just before the old forum went offline, there was a thread about a handlebar vibration dampening product. I looked a lot like a Tusk Riser, but seemed to have some type of red rubber that went between the riser and the bike.



    Does anyone remember what that product is and have any input on how well it works?

    just installed this. $150 -15% discount 34mm bolt pattern for 7/8 bars. Limits vibration quite a bit, easy to install.

    If you would like to try a cheep way that works,

    pull the clutch side grip off, lay the bike on its right

    side, and pour about 3000 BB in the handle bar, put grip back

    on and ride it and see if the vibration is gone.

    I went with aluminum ATV high bars and filled them with lead shot. Worked great.

    I've heard about the BB trick, but wasn't sure it would work. As cheap goes, it's worth a try.



    What about BBs vs. lead shot? Is one material better than the other?

    seems like an expensive band-aid to me.



    the stock bars are the problem. for less than half the price of those risers, you could get a set of pro-taper aluminum bars, which fixed my vibration issues.

    Yes, I got the ATV Hi bars.



    I am only 5'8", but I really love the extra height. It really gave the bike a more comfortable position for me. It's a little more work for the ATV Hi bars to be installed though. I had to reroute most of the cables. I had a post about it on the old forum, but the search engine over there is being a butthole right now.



    I will add a few of the pics here.



    In this pic, you can see the cables that I rerouted. They were next to the ignition on the right side and I had to move them over into the other hole. This required the tank and seat to be removed so that I could unfasten some electrical connections to move the wires. On the left side, I had to undo the clutch cable to reroute it. It's not difficult work at all, but did require some time and effort.







    Next are a few pictures in the differences between the ATV Hi bars and the stock bars:



















    It was totally worth the effort, but it is some added effort to go with the Hi bars.



    one other thing to note, the two holes you see on the right side of the stock bars are not there already on the pro-taper bars. they are aluminum bars, so it's simple to put some holes in there, but the job does require a drill and drill bit (can't remember what size i used).
