    Do you know if these will also work with Cycra pro bends? I take it they replace the normal wedged nut that grips the inside of the handlebar?

    RicorSHX, my concern is the I.D. (inside diameter) these things go inside the handbar, right? My aluminum bar's Outside Diameter (I.D.) is the typical (non-Harley) size. I think that is 22mm or 7/8 inch.

    That is my understanding. I'm pretty sure the order would be like this: bark buster, insert, vibranator. The "new bolt" would likely be long enough to go through the bark buster, through the insert and then thread into the end of the vibranator. When you tighten the bolt, you are wedging the insert with vibranator, which is now suspended in your bar.

    At least that's how I imagine it working.

    Triple threat - the only way you're going to know is to open up the end of your bar. I'd guess most of the alu bars are around 14mm ID, it does look small, but obviously they've taken this into account.

    That's right, we supply the long 90mm stainless bolt for the Acerbis applications and also the 70mm for the Cycra, Enduro, etc. The Vibranator bolts to the end of the longer bolt.

    They definitely work with the Cycra pro bends. We supply/ replace the bolt that goes into the Cycra pro bend sweggie with a longer one.

    The non Harley bars are 7/8 OD. The typical aluminum bar ID is .550" or 14mm. The Renthal fat bar has a .625 or 16mm ID. If you have hand guards that attach into the bar ends, it doesn't matter because the hand guard attachment parts are used. If you get it wrong, we will replace them with the right size, no charge. We will also refund the purchase price to anyone who didn't think the anti vibration performance lived up to their expectations.

    So far it seems that he really stands behind his product. I am waiting for mine to ship so I can try them in Moab on my upcoming trip. My paint shaker needs help, so I have high hopes.

    We're getting allot of requests for the BMW's. Unfortunately the bars aren't compatible with our system right now. Because of requests, we're going to design a BMW external bar end version soon. I will keep you posted.

    Looks just like the vibration dampers in my 1998 Honda ST1100 or the 1984 Honda V65 Sabre.

    Would that apply to the (single cylinder) F650GS/Dakar as well?

    Your handlebar ends need to be hollow. I'm researching what can be done with the heated grip wiring and the threaded insert the bar bar weight bolts into.

    On a side note, we have developed a front fork damping insert that will transform your Dakar. We signed off the DR650 version first and the reviews are starting to roll in. Please check it out.

    This product sounds great! I have a 2007 KTM 300 XCW and can't ride the bike for more than an hour before my hands are completely numb from the vibration. The bike has only 400 miles on it and is in great shape. I tried riding my first enduro (Scrubby Pine) 2 weeks ago and after an hour or so, I had to stop every 3-5 minutes to shake my hands and to regain feeling. It was very painfull and could not finish the ride. I read that filling the bars with expandable foam or caulk would help but it certainly did not. I filled the bars this past Friday with a self leveling caulk and tried to ride the Greenbriar enduro yesterday with no success. Again, 1 hour into the ride and the numbness set in. Once the hands start to go numb, I can't physically feel the clutch and throttle control. Absolutely horrible. If I don't fix the problem, then I will be forced to sell the bike for possible a 4 stroke with less vibration. I think the problem is more the higher frequency on the buzzing than actual vibration, because the bars feel ok during the initially. I have the stock KTM Neken bars with Enduro Engineering handguards. Will this product work? Please help!

    Yes, they work with Enduro handguards. We haven't had any problems with any stock KTM bars. We really look forward to your feedback. Selling these to a KTM dealership is like selling 'pussy in a mining camp'.

    I could not find a contact #, email address, or mailing address for your company on your website.

    I am very interested in trying your product as I had a bad case of CTS two years ago from a hand injury. It still bothers me a little today but is manageable with bar end weights and soft grips. Your product may be just what I need.

    Got them installed in my 2001 LC4 640 aka: the paintshaker, because it will shake the paint right off the bike. Installation was painless. Fired her in the garage and went for a quick spin around the block.

    Did they get rid of the vibrations? No. Did they reduce them? Yes. My best guess is that it knocked 35-45% of the vibrations out of the handle bars. Not the miracle I was hoping for, but worth the $$.

    If I was to offer a suggestion to the engineers it would be this. I feel that when used in conjunction with the Acerbis rally guards, it places the dampener to far inbound to reduce the vibes. The dampener needs to be out near the end of the bars. i.e. design and incorporate a small locking device in the end of the dampener so it moves it outward farther.

    Find a solution for that and you would be getting closer.

    is the model to order IF you can use the internal Cycra bar end anchors. Otherwise you need to get new bars, it's worth it.

    Will it fit the Aprilia RXV handlebar with Aprilia handguards?
    You quoted RXV_Poor in the first post, who has the same bike, but his testimonial is on his KTM. Did he try it on the RXV also? Thanks!
