I've had a little wear and tear over the years and sometimes the vibes on the 610 and the 950 would get to me. I added the Highway Dirtbikes anti-vibe insert and found that it made a difference, and of course still allows for the HDB guards

Removing the crossbar on handlebars can help,or running fat bars.

Cushy grips.

Tripple clamps with rubber mounting.

Ricor Vibranators.

Aluminum bars.

Barkbusters.

Bar end weights.

some fill the bars with lead shot.

Less rpms,as in more teeth on front sprocket.

Road tires,and balanced and true wheel.

Properly tuned engine.

I have been running twin wall bars that supposedly isolate the inner bar with rubber and reduce vibes. However, I have been running them so long it is hard to say how much difference they make.

Increasing mass and reducing stiffness is going to have the largest impact on attenuating high frequencies.

ManicSalamander bar end weights: http://www.manicsalamander.com/produ...ss&type=Weight

Rox Anti-vibe risers: http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...ublabel_id=269

Lead shot in the hollow of the bar will make a big difference, just make sure to encase it in a silicone caulk medium or else you'll get lead dust.

I went to Renthals website and the only thing they say about rubber is that there is a seal between the two bars and nothing about vibration.

Ah, I changed my mind, I bought them for their strength. I could have sworn vibration was my motivation for buying those....

So being more rigid bars, they may have made it worse. Disregard the twin wall idea.

This Guys is the only way to go and the guards brace the bars in such a way that it will cut vibes right down too. You can mess around with gimmicks or get serious and treat yourself to some of these .

You won't find many CO riders without them , I was on a ride a few weeks ago with 10 bikes from all over the State and everyone of them had HDB .guards

at least 25% reduction. I was going to sell the bike until I got these.

I also added progrip 714 grips. Combo essentially fixed the problem. No it is not as smooth as a DRZ, but way better than stock.

You might also try the big squishy Oury Road grips:

You put in in the tubes? I use it on my Speed Triple with no weights on the wheel. Smooth as glass up to 140mph+.

RideOn is specified for both tubeless and tube tires. Balancing effect should be the same - puncture protection is reduced in tubes (65% I think they say) because if the tube tears, you're toast, and pinch flats would be outside the protected part of the tire.
Thank god the 690 won't go 140 mph
