I would start tearing it apart to have a better look. Man that had to hurt.

Don't fill the bars all the way with lead shot, just get some flat lead plumbers tape, roll up a 3" long taper and hammer it into the bar ends, put your grips back on and ride. Acts just like bar end weights.

The come with a guide and the tap for an easy install. As an added bonus, you really get to crank down the hand guards so they won't move in an off.

Just be forewarned, the tap guide needs to go over the handle bar a ways to work correctly so you will need to take off your old grips to install properly. You might be able to "roll back" the edge of the grip but it would be a pain IMO.

rburkat, take a look at the HDB set in my link above. They thread into the bars making the most secure barkbuster mount one could imagine. I would bet that your handlebars would break before the barkbuster gets moved in an off.

If anyone can't tell, I hate it when a simple fall results in needing to break out the tools to rearrange your handlebars because the barkbuster rotated.

+1 for the HDB inserts as I said on the similar thread in thumpers....

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

try Cycra Pro-Bend barkbusters, or tighten your old ones...

my bike has fallen down more than Chevy Chase in nasty mountain action on my Cycra's and they haven't budged a millimeter- nevermind an inch!

I do have them......They rock! (except for the wedge style bar insert)

It was the cheap, aluminum inserts that would pull out or twist. I've slightly flared the end of a set of bars because of it. The aluminum of the insert was crushed and the bolt put all the pressure on one point inside the bar.

I now only use the threaded inserts by BRP: http://www.brpmoto.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=49

or the threaded anti-vibe inserts as mentioned above.

All problems solved.

I determined I was just a wimp.The answer is to just ride more, throttle seams to cure most everything. I also think there also might be a direct relation to how much alcohol was consumed the night before
