Vibration on handle bars

I notice there is a lot of vibration on the handle bars on the new 2020 s1krr to the point where my hands gets slightly numb. I was wondering if adding weighted handlebar ends will help? Specifically the Eurotech weighted handle ends.

Just trying to justify purchasing this if it will actually help.

My XR I thought was Buzzy... I purchased bar end weights (the heaviest I could find) for 85.00. They completely solved the issue to the point where I forgot it was ever an issue. They also looked stock just slightly larger.

I tend to relax my upper body and use my legs to hold myself onto the bike leaving my arms and hands relaxed barely applying pressure. Try it. It takes a bit of zen to do it.

The new bike has a bit of vibration to it through the handlebars, other owners have brought it up. Do you have a K67? Or were you just responding to numb hands in general? (I'm actually asking, not being a sarcastic d1ck lol)

I've been looking myself, just haven't purchased due to not sure what weights(actual weight)will hit the market. Furthermore or what weight would be best.
