I ain't got no vibes on my 390 at all. At least none to squabble over. Vibes are nearly non-existent on this bike.

Why did you need to anti-vibe your bars? Are you just that bored?

HF, smooth road/trail cruising vibes are very low on the FE 390, like you said almost non-existent like a lot of 400's and that's really nice.

I added dampening for all the sharp-edged rocks gardens I get to 'experience' riding in WA. Long stretches of baby-heads and lots of rock step-ups, rocky trails, and zillions of log/root crossings and the 'ol wrists start complaining a bit (both my wrists have been broken in the past, one twice). The Flexx bars really helped on a long day of riding on my RXV550, but I wanted to try a different system this time on the Berg. I'll report back when I've tried this system on hard riding.

I have my suspension on "Comfort" settings when I do the rocky stuff and no complaints about the suspension in general. The bar dampener should cut the "zing" of sharp edge hits, as was mentioned earlier. I hope so.
