    A while back there were questions about earlier HD V-Twins that had serious vibration felt in the bar and ran across this article in regarding a "vibration terminator" device. Might be worth a look...

    On some previous bikes i have fitted bar end weights that help dampen out some of the vibration this seems to be just the latest twist on that old idea

    I glued a roll of pennies into the end of each bar on my 2007 Sporty when I switched to Kuryakyn ISO grips and the combination helped immensely!

    I listed it only because I remember there was another product called the "Bar Snake" and when I saw this I thought of the simple bar end weights at the grip ends sport bike riders use all the time. This was 1st time I saw one on an HD...
