Handlebar vibration help??

Any recommendations aside from Grip Puppies? They are cheap for you guys in the US but it's AUD$100 inc shipping for 2 pairs which is crazy. I can get a pair of Rizomas for close to that.

This is on a CBR1000. I will upgrade the bar ends so that's 1 option. I'm hoping there is a really good set of grips out there to help?

I should add i am wearing my thick Winter gloves at the moment. When the pain kicked in i was still wearing my Summer Alpinestars gloves. Changing to the thicker glove has made no difference.

So i'm not looking to explore a new pair of gloves. I have 7 pairs as it is lol.

Fill the bars with 12 bore shot pellets (available from gun shops)

Make sure the engine mounts are tightened to manufacturers specification.

Bolts are tightened. Had the throttle bodies all fixed.

I've heard of the leadshot but it seems a bit fiddle as i'd have to take everything apart.

I'd rather exhaust other options first if possible.

Was a bit of a fiddle but worked brilliantly for my Laverda - Pushed a rubber bung half way up inside the clip-on so only filled lower half - mixed shot with Dow Corning silicon grease to stop the pesky little beggars escaping all over the place and pushed another bung in after it - didn't need bar-end weights after that so put blingy ally ones on

I wanted to give that a whirl but unfortunately my manhood is not long enough to reach the grips. It's also not spliced.

Just placed an order for a set of grip puppies.

For $50 it's worth a shot. I'll call the store in the morning and find out how long until i get them.

I hope this works as the wife just told me to buy a car and sell my Ducati to buy 2 x Brutales for us. I'm not ready to get rid of the Duc but then again, that was the bike which started my problems so maybe she is right

This may sound crazy, but Ive done it for a couple of my friends, and it works! Take off the clipons (or have someone hold the bike leaned to one side, then the other) and fill the handle bar all the way with a glue gun/glue stick. When it hardens, it will absorb most of the vibrations instead of transfering it to your hands.
Leave enough room for bar ends.
