Question Vibration with Ness Fly BArs

HI,

Just changed to Ness Fly Handlebars on my 2008 KingPin. Is it normal to have vibration in these? Above 65MPH its hard to see anything in my mirrors? Is there a fix?

You may want to start with new handlebar bushings , they are very affordable I believe there are 4 of them , and make sure you torque them down to the correct torque . I think the bushings are like 6.00 ea. This is where I would start if it were me .

I have the Ness fly bars also. Although there doesn't seem to be much vibration felt, but the mirrors at 60MPH+ sure vibrate. Cant see much of anything out of them. Curious to see if new bushings will help.

You could stick these in but make sure you know the inside diameter of your bars

No, I 'll probably put in new bushings over the winter to see if they do anything for my mirrors. If they don't help maybe I'll change out the Ness bars for 2" pull backs?

nothing untoward I've noticed since fitting Burleigh Bars, http://www.burleighbars.com.au/
I just bolted them up with new bolts and the old bushings.
I've managed to secure us forum members $100 discount off a set for anyone that desires the very best handlebars that money can buy.

P.S. I will add it was good to get rid of the chrome metal grips that came with my bike, and are in this pic...supremly happy with Burleigh Bars fitted iso-grips instead.

Mirrors look nice n sharp n clear in this vid

I ran them on a JP and a KP with no issues but as VJ said; try some Vibranators or the Bar Snake. Another easy trick is to take a few rolls of nickels and rap them in a good tape then insert them into the bars until you can't fit anymore in there. You can always fish them out later if it doesn't work for you.
