I'm happy with the riding position that the Renthal bars fitted are giving me, my DR is strictly a tarmac terror lol, I'm riddled with arthritis, so off roading isn't really an option.

If I could smooth out the vibes on the mirrors at motorway speeds I'd be happy, there's not much vibration through the bars into my hands etc, however I do start to feel a bit of arm fatigue after 70 miles in the saddle, unfortunately I think that is more down to my arthritis and I'm hoping the Vibranator's will help reduce some of this.

bugger :tdown: I'll message them and ask them can they mark it as a "Gift" ... worth asking I suppose lol

Kyle have you rubber mounted the handlebar risers ? I've so, what thickness of rubber did you use?

My SR43 has solidly mounted handlebars and doesn`t vibrate as much as my SR41 & 42 with rubber mounted bars.
Doesn`t make sense but I guess the Big doesn`t obey the same laws of physics as other bikes :crazy:

Eventually got round to fitting my Vibranators yesterday. Had a ride out today for around 2 hrs. They do make a difference. I noticed that they smooth out the higher frequency vibes at around 60 mph & also things feel better at 70 mph. I reckon the most gains are at the 60 mph mark so good for normal riding I suppose. No change at low revs really, but then those vibes are such low frequency you would need massive heavy weights to counteract them. need a long trip to see the difference really.

Cheers for the update buddy. I'll have to measure the internal diameter of my bars and see what ones I'll need. 60mph sounds spot on for my style of riding... be a month or two yet before I get a set mind you, my wallets empty :wtf:
