Of COURSE I got it from his website.

As stated, apparently he has too many customers.

I've already resolved the issue myself anyway. Nice and smooth now.

He has COMPLETELY ignored TWO emails from me. It must be nice to have TOO MANY customers.

I've gone elsewhere.

There must be a techno glitch with your emails. I make sure I reply within 8 hrs on every email.

Sorry,
Don

We fixed the coupon code issue. The 'code' is: advrider.

The coupon codes automatically expire at the end of the every month and we didn't catch it.

Just wanted to say these guys have great customer service.

My order arrived 3 days after placing it. After opening the package I realized I ordered the wrong item. When I contacted Don and asked about purchasing the proper bolts or returning the incorrect ones he just offered to send the required bolts. That was on Friday Afternoon, the bolts were in my mailbox when I arrived home from work today.

Any more user updates? I'm thinking of installing a set on a DL650 with Suzuki handguard but haven't heard from anyone who has used them on the Wee.

Vibranators on BMW R1200GS are good

I have a set of the Vibranators made RICOR installed in my 2005 BMW R1200GS. My bike has an aftermarket Kaoko throttle lock, replacing the factory bar-end weight on one side. They have designed a system that fits easily, replacing the stock or longer Kaoka bar end bolts with Vibranator-equipped bolts. The only modification involved is drilling through a welded plate just past the threads inside the handlebar with a standard drill bit. This allows the Vibranator system to be suspended inside. The install does not affect the bike visually in any way, and is completely hidden.

I was curious on how it worked and the effectiveness, and while at the RICOR shop, I was lucky enough to run tests with the inventor: stock/none and several different frequency settings. Stock, my bike has a vibration from 4k-5k, which unfortunately is in the range used on the freeway at certain speeds. Testing various tunings of the Vibranators in my own handlebars, it was obvious (by feel and mirror shake) that they damped the vibrations differently. Of the tunings, the production setting was the best, with much clearer mirror and about half of the perceived vibrations through the grips. I started somewhat skeptical and left convinced on the technology.

So, if you have a R1200GS with stock or Kaoko throttle lock, keep an eye out on the Vibranator being available on their web soon.

Ugh, been trying to contact Don for almost 2 weeks. Tried both of his e-mail at vibranators and ricorshocks. Even Pm him on this board. Still no reply.

Really, this vibranators seems to be the solution to my dilemma but without him replying to my questions, I can't confirm my order.

I have had this issue with several small suppliers. In my case, the spamfilters were trashing my email because of the gmail, yahoo (free)domains. Once I sent it from a "real" ($$$) account I got a response in 10 minutes.

The FJR Vibranator comes with a tool that pulls the rubber bushing out easily. It consists of a 6mm bolt, washer and a tube that 'pushes' against the handlebar.

The FJR owners are reporting back the numb hand problem is solved. The guarantee is unconditional. If the parts are damaged, no problem.
