A little late to this party but wanted to toss in an alternative that takes a different approach.

HighwayDirtBikes is a specialist company out of Denver famous for their bulletproof barkbusters, but they also offer unique anti-vibe inserts that mount inside your handlebar ends.

For MX and especially single track riders/racers, most like to keep things as narrow as possible. Therefore, adding additional width (and weight) to handlebars that have typically already be cut down 1" or 2" from stock is a non-starter. For our purposes this solution is probably more applicable to lane splitters and adventure riders that spend more time off road then on.

I have not tried them on my R1250GS becuase it's a sewing machine compared to my off road racing bikes but for those who can't or don't want to add width they may be a great way to reduce vibes without going wider. They work brilliantly on a buzzy two-strokes and larger, high-revvingng 4-strokes.

Needless to say, the results will NOT as dramatic as adding a 1-pound weight to the end of each bar but are surprisingly effective.
