Hello folks - I am on a quest for a set of bar end weights or grip end weights for a 2000 Triumph legend - stock or aftermarket does not matter. I'd just like to know where they can be purchased and how much they cost. I am trying to combat the handle bar vibration and increase creature comfort, or anthropometrics :cool:

Filling the bars

I filled my bars with expanding foam insulation, and others have used silicone caulk. It did help some, but not as much as the Grab on foam grip covers I installed. I actually though about using my bullet casting smelter and filling the bar with lead, but I though the extra weight might adversely affect the handling, and it might be difficult to make sure equal amounts of weight were on each side of the axis point.

You could fill your bars with BB's as some riders have...

I have a bar snake in my T140. I can't say that is was a night and day change.
But I can't imagine doing anything to the Thunderbird that is so smooth compared to the old Bonne.
