Question Lost a Factory Bar End

Motovation Universal Fit Barend Weights/Sliders

Don't know when if dropped off... but been thinking about upgrading and saw these. Anyone have any experience with them? Or suggestions for other options. And yes... I've thought about changing my bars as well... just too many sticks in the fire to take on that project.

Appreciate any comments anyone might have.

Pass it on.

Was it the left one. Do yourself a favor and locktite the shifter bolt. These bikes are known to lose both.

Sorry, no experience with the Motovation weights.

Blue locktite is invaluable as you no longer have to stop on rides to try to find a part that vibrated off. Too bad I didn't know about it in 69 when I bought a BSA 441 Shooting Star single cylinder! I think the motovation barends for the 919 can be returned for a full refund less shipping if they don't meet your expectations.

Hey Stiggy: This is not meant to be a "told you so" but if you had looked at the 919 Helpful Topics under Heads Up you could have avoided the loss.

those bar ends are $90, but new handlebars are only $62.

I have some stock bar ends if you are interested, or some chrome ones that say RR.

My stock 919 bar ends are doing duty on the yellow Hornet, one even has a flat spot to prove its worth.

Just checked out those Motovation bar ends, nice stuff, they make great sliders. These Rizomas are suprisingly less expensive though, have been considering them for the 599...http://www.pjsparts.com/catalog/prod...roducts_id=178

And as I continue to edit, those Motovations with the bar weights are pretty trick, might make a difference if you're experiencing the infamous handlebar buzz.

I read the advice. Locktite on the shifter and bar-ends. When the shifter bolt fell out a 10 mm bolt got me home.. The shifter bolt is machined and costs about $18.00. I should have listened. With all the good advice on WT and I chose to not pay attention...how stupid of me..

I do believer there is quite a bit of vibration in the 919. I feel it more in my butt than my hands. I did use loctite on the Motovation sliders I put on two nights ago. Now I listen.

Yes - Yes I know... lock-tight is my friend... The funny thing is, the left one was the one always coming loose.... but the right is the one I lost. I had put some lock-tight on the left one and it's still tight as can be... I'm usually pretty good about noticing things like loose parts... this one just got past me. Just enjoying my ride too much. Funny thing... the only reason I caught the problem is that my right-hand kept getting buzzed on my commute. That never happened before... I thought it was something else that was wrong... ended up just being that the bar end was gone!

I'll take a look at the different options mentioned. And thanks for the offer Zookmor... I'll let you know if I decide to go that route.

I might have the right bar end bumping around somewhere if you just want the stock one. Let me know if you want me to look for it.

I checked the bar ends after reading the helpful tips, they were so tight I couldn't loosten the screws. At 600 miles I installed my Throttlemeister and the left screw was so lose I could have removed it with a pocket knife. I immediately locktited the shifter bolt....

I was just out at Motovation today! I rode up to pick up my frame sliders. Wish I could comment on the bar-ends. Everything in their glass case was oh-so-shiny, I can tell you that much.
