How to help with your handle bars Vibration


Recommended Posts


Old school

Fill your handlebars with lead shot size 8 or 9. Cap the ends with silicone.

(caution lead is harmful if sucked on or swallowed)

They help to reduce the vibration of the bike that you feel through the handlebars. This reduction in vibration translates into less fatigue and numbness in your arms and hands.

A Quick Search produced several Methods....Here are a few....

Stop Bad Vibes with Bar Snake! ©2007 Barsnake LLC; All Rights Reserved

you can use great stuff foam insulation in comes in an aresol can and you just spray it into your bars and it expands and hardens and absorbs vibration i use it in my bikes and works great for less than $5 and no added weight you can get it at hardware stores

Go to the local tire shop and get some junk lead tire weights. Stuff some paper in the end of your bars to a depth of about 6-8 inches. Melt the lead in an old kitchen ladel with a propane tourch and pour it in the end of the bars.

Use better Grips,,,, Foam or Gel

If your hands are going numb dont hang on so Hard

I have every intention of attending, I have my cabin reservation paid for and the day off work on Friday. My friend with the trailer who is driving us down broke threw his chain and broke his case around the shifting shaft. We are fixing it hopefully today. We are trying this brazing material called HTS-2000 to try and weld the piece back on. There isn't enough room to get a TIG torch in to where the cracks are, so this seems to be our best option. If that doesn't work, we are putting the motor out of my '04 TRX in his quad since I haven't gotten the title for mine yet and can't register it. One way or another, we are going to make it work.

      Hi Guys!

      New member and could really use your advice. I would have to believe this has been an issue for others but a search here came up with nothing......? (Probably me not doing search correctly)
      I have an 87 Big Bear 350 YFM350FWT
      The OEM Mikuni BTM carb is shot and would rather replace than rebuild.
      It is no longer made and I have had good luck with NICHE carbs so I ordered a #K-CRB-0006 This was what they said was replacement when ordered. This Carb only uses 1 Throttle cable. The Slide is linked so it uses one. (OEM had 2nd cable coming through top to move slide)
      Problem is when I ordered a replacement Cable from NICHE (#C-CBL-0061) the Cable wire is a little short, not allowing Throttle to return all the way down to Idle position. I called NICHE and they are at a loss. Haven't gotten back to me after 2+ weeks.
      What would you recommend other than a carb rebuild?
      Can I just use 1 of the OEM cables (It is the right length) and snip/disconnect the other that went to top of Carb for Slide?
      Or ??
      Thanks in advance for any advice you have!!

      Hey all!
      I'm on a mission to buy my first UTV soundbar as a gift for my dad(a newbie on ATV). I'm aiming for something that offers great sound quality without breaking the bank – my budget is around $250. Right now, I'm considering options like ecoxgear, kemimoto, and boss.
      Does anyone have experience with these brands or specific models that you'd recommend? Any advice or suggestions would be super appreciated!

      Recently picked up a 1991 Lt230e for repair. Compression is a little low Id say, around 80psi, I also have spark but the spark is odd . When cranking the spark is a constant arc. I’ve got it to sputter but never fully turn on. I believe the spark is my issue, being constant and not detonating at the right time. I’m not sure whether this issue is an electrical fault like some missing ground, a faulty cdi, or a timing issue. Any ideas where I should start?
