Heavy Duty Bar End Weights
« on: January 24, 2020, 01:53:33 PM »
This one is for all of you who feel that the standard bar end weights aren't really enough for the XR!

The XR is a lovely bike but it's quite bad for vibrations, that's not just my own opinion but that of Mark (the Boss) and in fact the general consensus we have found. Indeed I personally find the XR to be one of the worst bikes for vibrations, of my varied biking experience. Some people don't find it a problem, and some bikes indeed don't seem to have this problem at all, but many of them do, including Mark's, who purchased his XR new in 2014 and immediately noticed the problem with it.

Marks solution, which doesn't fully cure the problem, that isn't what we're claiming, but it does drastically improve and lessen the effects of these vibrations, was to replace the stock bar end weights with a pair of larger bespoke heavier gauge steel ones, which he had especially made by a specialist local Engineering company.

With a pair of larger, heavier bar end weights fitted, Mark noticed the improvement immediately, and so these bespoke heavy duty bar end weights were then added to our product list and they have been a popular seller ever since!

As said, they are made from high grade mild steel (the only product of ours which is made from mild steel) by a professional engineering company especially for us, and then powder coated. Each weighs in at 270g, so are both physically larger and much heavier than the standard weights (see images), and are supplied obviously as a pair, with stainless steel washers and stainless steel replacement bolts!

If your XR is quite bad for vibrations and you struggle a bit as a result, give our heavy duty replacement bar end weights a try, we are confident you won't be disappointed, and for the price, they are extremely good value for money!
