bar end weights

Has anyone installed bar end weights in a 900? I have heard it is a detailed installation envolving boring the inside out ETC: .
Thanks for any info.

Hmmm...I've not heard of it being done on the 900. I haven't had the grips off my bike yet, so I'm not sure if the bar has solid ends or not. Another popular vibration dampening mod in the sport-touring community is filling the handlebar with lead shot and sealing both ends up. This, from what I've heard, also works well when bar end weights are not an available option.

If you get the iso grips you can buy bar end weights that go on with four screws..
