Bumping this to get some group thoughts and recommendations.
So I've got the Renthal Road Highs and some Pro-Grips that are closed ended but will soon be open ended. I'm waiting for some warmer weather before I mount them. I know the stock vibranators won't work so I found these:
Anti-Vibration InsertsFasst Company
Do I even need these? Do they make that big of a difference? These are compatible with the Renthals and I've been told work quite well (Plus aren't too expensive). I know I could easily modify the stock bar ends to work with these vibranators but then I started thinking about bar end mirrors and having the option of putting them on down the road. If I want to have the vibranators in the new bars, I could:
1) Mount the vibranators with bar end of my choice in the Renthals but leave a portion of the end of the Renthals sticking out so that I could put a clip on mirror on the bar.
2) Mount the vibranators with bar end of my choice in the Renthals, have the grips out towards the end of the bars, and swap in a bar end mirror (If I choose to) that mounts internally. Would I still be able to use the vibranators with this arrangement?
So if I bought something like this:
I know I could use it as a clip on (Option 1) or mounted on the end of the bar without the vibranators. However, could I kludge that to work with the vibranators (Option 2) on the internal mount? The goal here is to maintain flexibility with what I want to do and I don't want to mount the grips inward to accommodate a clip on down the road if I never end up getting them. So I think Option 2 would be my first choice, I just want to know if it's even a realistic choice.
Anyone have bar end mirrors with vibranators? Thanks a lot for the help.
