aftermarket clip-ons

not even sure if this is the right question.
what are most of you guys running as clip-ons to minimize the vibration.
i mean once you start revving the out of the engine and the grips are just about rattling out of your hands how do you fix it?

The aftermarket clip-ons don't have a weighted bar end to my knowledge. Some may, but their purpose is for other reason than vibration control.

If you want to fix it on your bike with stock clip-ons try and get some better bar ends that are weighted. Such as motivation or similar.

Start by replacing your grips.

BC is right. but with stock clip-ons you eliminate alot of what ur feeling stock ones are weighted inside the bar as well as the screw-in weights on the end.

A lot of folks with vibration problems in after market clip-ons will add lead or steel shot inside them. I don't like this idea because in the event of a crash and one of them breaks open, you've got little marbles rolling around the track surface...

If vibration is an issue, Jody (et al) are right, the stockers are best for damping.

As Tom stated the lead shot inside helps TONS. I mix the lead with epoxy then pour it in and cap them, thus eliminating the crash factor. Vortex makes weighted bar ends for their clip-on too I believe.

Yup, the honorable Mr Beasley is correct, I've heard of some using the expanding spray foam too with the steel/ lead shot. I forgot all about that, good catch Buck.

alright final verdict on the clip-on (stock) was filling them with copper BB's and epoxy($10).worked like a charm.vibration just about completely gone,even at ECR where the bike spent alot of time on the redline.

Have you guys that put weight in the bars ever ridden 2 strokes or MX?

Or, what bikes have you guys ridden and where?

i think dirtbikes have no crank balancer and 2 strokes in general vibrate pretty good.
