bar end weights
« on: September 18, 2010, 09:03:00 pm »
If your in the market for different bar end weights, I have a heads up for you. Our own industry members HVMP, makes some nice products. I like the look of stainless steel over black anyway. Plus being able to get them a little heavier to keep any vibration at bay doesn't hurt either.   I recently have dealt with their company and found their products and service to be outstanding. Check them out if your in the market!    http://www.hvmp.com/    Bionic Bob  COG & AMA member  First C14 CDA member #0220  08 C14,03 Mean Streak, & 86 C10

Bob,
Which size did you buy and did you notice a reduction in bar vibration?
I seem to be on a spending spree of late. Must be all the funerals I've been going to.  O:-)

I bought a special fit size not meant for my bike. This was for my FJR. I wanted them to fit better to my shorter grips and be heavier. So It's pointless to list them. But they did reduce the buzz somewhat and look much better. I like the brighter look on the bike.  They make heavy and extra heavy weights for the Concours.
 I have to say that they went out of their way to help me find just what I need. They have very good service IMO!
