Yes this may be the wrong thread but I dont recall the other 3 cylinder bikes having the same bar end weights.

Does anyone know what the thread size is for the bar ends on the B3? I'm thinking of turning a new set out of titanium that will better accept mirrors and get rid of the stupid gap and the left hand side. Obviously its a metric thread and it looks to me like somewhere around an m12 but I dont have a tap on me to check.

Did you find out for sure? I believe it's a M16 x 1.5 but I'm not 100% sure (just some quick measurements of my stock bar end weights with a pair of calipers). Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it's SAE thread!

The only common application with this M16 x 1.5 bar end is the Yamaha FZ6/FZ1

Theyre for sure metric. I believe theyre also 16 X 1.5 (I dont have the model in front of my on my computer). I'm in the process of trying to figure out if the dragster bars are the same thread as its a pretty popular bike. The new weights turned (no pun intended) lovely. In case you havent seen them (and so I can shamelessly plug my thread) theyre here: http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=127401

Neal, wow your bar ends look fantastic! As a mechanical engineer I just love what you did.
What do you think about making them out of stainless, extending them a tad, and rounding the end for those who don't want bar end mirrors but would like a heavier bar end to help reduce vibes?


I could do the CAD modifications :)

Do heavier bar ends reduce vibration? I ask because I just removed the factory bar ends for a nicer looking Corse set. However the corse set is substantially lighter. Let me know your thoughts on this. Thaks

Well the verdict is in.. Putting my OEM bar ends back on! The vibration was pretty uncomfortable.

Anyone want a pair of MV Corse black bar ends? PM me I'll send them to you
