Purchased mine from the US via the HVMP site, they come within a week via the USPS. Not cheap but they do work. You may be charged import tax   :305:

Hi
I appreciate that this doesn't answer your question but if you are trying to deal with bar vibration, I've recently fitted a pair of Evotech bar ends and Grip puppies to my 2018 XR.Whilst there is still some vibration in the 5500 rpm area, its much less so now and definitely worth the effort.
And the HMCR/Post Office wont bend you over with VAT/Handling charges!

Ah ok, many thanks for the replies, I’ll have a look to try and find out what tax I may be shafted for before I proceed....
Do the grip puppies make much of a difference to the grip width and do they still get enough heat through from the heated grips?

The Grip puppies are quite thick but I'm used to them as I've used them on other bikes. I haven't tried the heated grips with them fitted to the XR but they worked perfectly well on my previous GSA.

Looks and price wise I would also go for the Evotech ones as well.

 I agree with savagefox, evotech for me. Have ran them for 500 miles and reduced the vibes I had down to barely noticeable.

AS I recall the import tax was less than £10

Still, it would be almost double the evotech ones correct?
