There are other things I've done to calm the bikes down...lined the fenders and chaingard with thick weatherstrip, wrapped the seat springs with solder, and used a small amount of gaffers tape where the engine mounts to the frame...not a rubber mount, which can make things worse sometimes, just a double layer of gaffers or "friction" tape.

I filled one bikes tubing with expanding foam and it helped, but not as much as I thought it would.

Couple of pounds maybe? I moved into my new digs and in the garge was a couple vitamin bottles full of "))" shot, I just poured it in. I don't know what it would cost to buy it, and since lead is supposed to be the metallic satan, I don't know how many would want to try it.

At least I didn't fill the bars with mercury.

I was sure Norman had a thread about removing the gears, I could not find it so I decided to put this here;

take a tip...leave a tip is a thread, this is a post in the thread take a tip...leave a tip.

Spooky is a great company, Roland build's excelent bike's and alway's take's care of his costumer's. So does Dan at thatdax, you cant go wrong with either one. I hope this is what you were asking?

A thread is a series of posts...a post is when you comment or ask a question in a thread.

Spookytooth sells kits and complete bikes and has a forum on their site, here we don't sell anything.

Handle bar vibration

On my XR650 all I did was add a little weight to the bar end's. I know a few guy's that use the bar snake.

What about stuffing the bar with cork gasket maker? I've never tried it but it would seem to me that it would work.
