    Question vibration dampening

    Trying to remember something from a seminar in Chas last week about a "bar snake"...apparently it helps to lesson handlebar vibration and mirror buzzing...my R100R is a pain in that area...would appreciate any info...

    I've seen them, but have never used one. They're like a big coiled spring that you feed into the bars.

    I checked their web page (Here) and it looks like they've developed a liquid version that may be more suitable for bars shaped like R-RS bars.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I put a bar snake in mine many many years ago and it seemed to help. If I remember correctly, it was like a long, lead impregnated (heavy) rubber snake that had a length of cable on one end of it. You fed the cable thru your handlebars, then smeared grease all over the snake and pulled it on thru! You cut off the excess with a knife and put your grips back on.
