!!!MANIC Salamander Super HEAVY bar-end weights.... what brand and where did you get them?
If you don't particularly like the appearance of bar end weights, or later decide to switch to bar end mirrors (as I did) you may want to consider a Barsnake. It has worked well for me... much better than plain hollow bars, and as good or slightly better than bar end weights it seems.Just found this old thread -- thanks everyone! I'll be giving Manic Salamander a call shortly.
Mine's a 2012 Bonneville SE and the first thing I noticed was a complete lack of handlebar vibration, I put it down to the rubber mountings in the handlebar clamps, having changed recently from Japanese 4 cylinders bikes I know all about tingling fingers.Hey Bigman,
I know what you mean about the vibrations. I can't ride more than an hour or two before my hands do numb.
I myself want to get a pair of 13-ounce Manic Salamander weights (see road dog's post above) but I prefer weights that bolt on. I have asked Paul Ashman at manic Salamander to design bolt-on weights for our bikes. If you are interested email him at let him know that you would be interested in the weights. He could have something out for us in a few weeks.
BTW, I looked around but I haven't been able to find anything out there that matches the MS 13-ouncers!

Thanks Mike, I'll keep those in mind as well if these massive weights from Manic Salamander prove to be too heavy.See my post # 611 in the thread below. I'm pretty happy with these bar end weights, and they look great, too.
