CF Mtn bike bars

Just wondering if any of you creative types have installed downhill CF mtn bike bars on your Brutale?

I am thinking this would reduce vibs and weight. The usual vib cures always add weight.

I have applied a lot of force to my current mtn bike CF bars and my arm broke first so I think they are up to the task.

Anyone done this yet?

Happy Thanksgiving,
Z

Would be an interesting experiment. You have the bars? Is the bend suitable? Let us know how that works out Z-Man.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

One of the sponsors are selling carbon fiber clip ons for F4 bikes. ( Can't remember who.)

Mt. bike bars aren't made to handle the weight of a motorcycle. Tread VERY carefully!

I believe the CF does not transmit vibs anything like aluminum because of all the fibers it is made of. Never tried it but will give it a shot since it is easy to do although the bars are not cheap. If it does not work, I can use them on the mtn bike I suppose.

Side benefit would be the heaters under the grips will not lose so much heat to the alum bars and can probably be left on low.
