Bar ends

Anyone got aftermarket bar ends that still work ?
What weight are they ?

I like the look of the Moto Corse ones but but I found aluminum is way to light.

I made a couple up, same style, same size as the Moto Corse ones, one in stainless, one in ally and to be honest I had noticably more vibrations through the bar with the alluminium one than with no bar end at all !

I haven't ridden with the stainless one yet, it's not as heavy as the original but it's got to be an improvement on the ally..

Pics make them look dull on the edges, there nice and shiny !



Cheers
Adam

I was searching around for barend that can minimise the vibration.
Finally, I have the last effex conditioning barend from my local bike shop here.

The weight is only 170g, but with the long brass rod the vibration is distributed more evenly throughout.

Only sad thing is that since it was the last set, I only got to choose the blue one.

Here is the link of the product : http://www.plotonline.com/brand/effex/lineup01-5.html

Isn't it a bit ironic? Everywhere else on a bike we try to shave off a bit of weight here and there to save weight, carbon this, titanium that. Yet when it comes to bar ends they are better the heavier they are!

I have the Moto Corse Titanium on mine, a bit more weight than the aluminum... work well for me.

Hey Adam..

You did a nice job on those Moto Corse replica stainless bar ends..

Why don't you do the same replica design on the OEM bar ends and then polish them up afterwards.. ( they're only painted from the factory).

Could do but I think they would look too big and ugly - the Moto Corse style really look good on the bike.
I think the weight of my stainless ones will be ok.
If not, I guess I could make the shaft longer or add a brass spacer as with Mavericks effex ones.

Just curious, but on the ride in to work this morning I was thinking about this issue. Why couldn't I just take one bar end off and fill the handle bar with BB's or pellets?? It's all hollow. Thoughts?
