Buzzing Bars

I'm sure it's going to take two seconds for Photog to answer this. How do I stop the grips on my Stella from buzzing?

Is there some sort of expensive hydraulic shock dampening mechanism I can buy?

Make it stop. MAKE IT STOP!!!

It's a tuning/break-in thing.

Give it some time. It'll get better. Until then, gel gloves.

Mine were KILLING me, and then it just gradually eased up to the point where it's not noticeable. That, or the nerve endings died.

Coming off the GS, for the first few minutes I'm thinking, damn, this thing is buzzy.

But if it does continue past 1200 miles or so, you might need to look at the timing or other tuning tweaks.

Another option is to upgrade the bakelite grips to something more in line with 19th or even 20th century engineering.

Now you listen to me, you feculent scuttle of scallops. I won't bear this type of remark anymore.

You're starting to stink on ice. ON ICE! UNDERSTAND?!
