vibrating bars

My 1078 gets a vibration through the bars at around the 5000rpm mark that will send my hands to sleep if sustained for a prolonged period (yes I know that is over the speed limit) ,anyone else get the buzzies or is it just my bike and anyone tried different weight bar ends. Thanks,
Cus.

Do a search on Bar end weights there are some heavier ones out there - Answer is don't hold on so tight

I filled my bars with expanding foam which I bought from my local hardware store.
I've done this now on a few bikes and it seems to do the trick.

I have the same bike as you and eddypro and the same barends as eddypro. Get them, it doesn't just cut down the vibe, it eliminates it. They work.

I have a Scott damper set kinda stiff, and I wear gloves, maybe that's why I don't notice it at all. I think eddypro and I have almost identical mods done without knowing it.

Is scheduled, just got the race ecu in. By early March, the shop likes to do it when outside temp is closer to riding temp.
