    Thanks. i ordered them from the Rugged Roads website. No idea how long it will take to get them. No matter, I don't pick up the bike until the end of June.

    Long story.

    Could you spend a few more words on the details of this throttle force mod? Not knowing a lot about the details of the RBW thottle, I'm a bit concerned to open the unit and loosing a set point or having all sorts of nuts and bolts and springs and balls flying around :-).
    Thank you.

    I have since checked twice and as of yesterday, I am getting the feeling that it is not a priority. I am probably going with something else, as I have trips in late July and August.

    Just wanted to update in case my prior post was causing someone to wait... :-(

    Hey michael, excellent post, love the job you have done!
    Can i ask you something, what material you used on the bar to reduce the vibrations? Is it from a tube?

    Thanks and happy riding!!

    I used some very dense/thin rubber i had laying around. I think it was from a floor matt.

    Please note. U have to grind the handle bar mounts slightly as to fit the fatter bar/rubber.

    The vibration did go down for sure, but not a huge difference over all.
