There's not much stuff specific to the XR, yet. I may get some bar risers, but wonder how that will affect vibrations? Will they make the vibes worse, as they're not that bad on my bike?

I got the Grip Puppies but found that I had problems with the extra diameter of the grip due to a thumb joint problem that I'm having.  The vibration issue seemed to decrease as the number of miles that I put on the bike increased after the first service for some reason.

Service is done, and Akra fitted. Although I had an S1000R before this, riding an upright bike at 120 in 3rd, screaming like a sportsbike, just seems surreal!
