(1987 K100RS) Bar end weights with heated grips
I recently purchased a set of Thorttlemeister bar end weights hoping to quell the vibration in my handlebars. Unfortunately, I just found out that unless I had factory bar end weights already, fitting these weights on will not be an easy task. Too bad, as I was looking forward to the double duty they would have provided.
Are there any other options for bar end weights on a K100RS with heated grips?
Dum vivimus vivamus
I used the K100 standard heated grip kit with my K75S to take some weight off my wrists, along with new ope end grips/switch and wiring it came with a new bar and bar end weights that used anchors inserted into the bar. If I remember right the Throttlemeister I bought worked just fine with it. I did get a question occasionally regarding why my K75 had bar end weights
Here is the schema from Max's:
"A good stick is a good reason
Talked to our local dealer, and while it does sound a bit tricky I'm going to give it a go. I still need something to quell these vibes through the bars and to fill in the unsightly holes I've gouged into the ends of the grips.
Thanks Ted, much appreciated.
Ted, Did you simply push the anchors into the handlebars, and was it the same anchor for both ends? I thought the 'notch' had to go into a drilled hole on the handlebars.
Turns out, I'm an idiot with a non-standard heated "grip" setup.
From what I have recently learned, the handlebars for heated grips have a ~90 degree open area to allow the wires for the heated grips to turn, and a notch on the bottom for anchoring the pin on the sleeve that you screw your bar-end weight into.
What I have is the wire (wires?) wrapped around the handlebar directly, at least on the passenger side. No heated grips, but instead a heated handlebar
A friend of mine that knows more about electrical wiring and machining will be stopping by on the weekend to see if this setup is salvageable.
Sorry for any confusion, hopefully I can still post my noob-ish questions here
I should have cut away the plastic cap at the end before taking this picture, it will be most likely heading to the scrap heap in the near future.
