Heavier bar end manufacturer - in the UK
« on: October 22, 2015, 03:53:17 PM »
I'm speaking to a UK manufacturer about manufacturing some heavier bar ends for our bikes, for forum users. The MD is happy to start making these (very quick turnaround, and would be competitively priced).

Who would be interested in some?

Ok, so with the other forum, we've got 6. Once we get to 10, I'll push him to get these into production. :028:

Please post your experience of these bar ends in reducing vibration. Also are they easy to fit, well made etc? I will certainly buy a set if positive feedback. The HVMP (USA) bar ends for the XR (base price $84, weight 292g) have been receiving rave reviews but customs will probably make us pay VAT/duty or whatever for importing. Cymarc's other stuff looks good and Nippy Normans sell a range too. Cheers.
