Bought a pair of Lightech bar ends to match my HP brake lever protector.

Noticed a lot of vibration on the left bar on a recent ride so reinstalled the stock bar end and voila, a lot less vibration.

Can anyone recommend atermarket bar ends that don't increase vibration at the grips or maybe even lessen it?
Thanks

If the stock ones work then why change them? Evotech, Alpha racing or HVMP might work. Depends on the year of the bike. HVMP worked on my 2017 but people say they dont work for the 2020.

As I said in my OP, just to match the HP brake lever protector that replaced the right stock bar end. And the remaining one is showing signs of wear.

Granted when I'm riding hard, it's not an issue but at around 4,000 rpm on my '15 the right bar vibrates just enough that it puts my hand to sleep in a hurry. I believe the HVMP are heavier than the Evotech by a little bit and I think I'm going the HVMP route this Spring.

i installed a throttlemeister on my '10 before i updated to cruise control, and those ends maybe helped a little, but wasn't awful before installing and not a real noticeable difference. then again, i was used to HD/choppers, so vibration isn't something new to me, though it is much higher frequency on the S1k.

Lightech have zero function, strictly "light" weight and bling parts. They don't function well, don't crash well, they just look nice and cost a premium. I lightech-ed my gsxr out last year with everything they offer and kind of regret it.

Try the R&G oversized bar ends. Heavier than stock but make a nice difference in vibrations.

Already had some Oxford bar ends so used an adapter and some large washers. The vibrations have lessened.
